Purple Lemon Photography

Costa Rica!!

Wednesday, April 30, 2014
Every time I photograph this fabulous family, I love to hear what words their kids will have as their photo catch phrase of the day.
Sometimes I love to engage with the kids in my session, but more often what I love is when the parents really take that time to connect with their children. The honest excitement a child has as they look into their parents eyes or see them playing silly games behind my head is far more meaningful than any goofiness or awkwardness I can bring to the playing field.

I am so thankful that I don't tend to photograph parents who just tell their kids to "smile" or "say cheese" or "just be good for the camera."  I love that parents want to spend good time with their kids. It's fantastic!

So what's the catch phrase?  I feel like this family is awesome at having their kids talk about or celebrate something recent when I photograph them.  One time Big Brother B had said "Yum-O!" at a party and to this day, when I think of that, I think of him and smile.  This time, it was their recent trip to Costa Rica.

How great to have two little boys, arms linked under an evergreen tree shouting, "Costa Rica!!"
