I had no idea I was in for such a treat when I met the Turner family. We met at a park and I could instantly tell we were going to have a great time. They were laughing, laid-back and they brought a giant gold balloon … what more can you ask for?!
These photos were meant to be of Charlie, to celebrate her 6 months of life. Raquel was pretty determined to stay out of the photos and to keep Charlie the star of the show. But when you get a family as attractive as these guys, you are forced to use the power of persuasion. And I’m so thrilled we grabbed a bunch of family shots as well! I mean, look at these faces!
We hung out at the park until the giant gold balloon escaped over the lake and then headed to their beautiful home. Charlie was a trooper the whole time, graciously posing wherever we set her down, even when the dogs were licking her face. I can see she gets her chill personality from her parents. As first-time parents, they were remarkably at ease and looked so comfortable in their roles already. They made my job not only easy, but fun.
Thank you Turners for such a wonderful afternoon! Though I don’t know you guys super well, I want you to know that parenthood looks good on you. I felt privileged to meet you during such a fun season of your lives … I hope I get to see you all again soon!
