WELCOME TO the allison burton photography blog. I'm A timeless, vibrant photographer who loves movement.
We like our drinks stiff, not our photos.
Serving Kansas and Missouri.
This adorable family are the Blakes. I had such a blast with these two boys and their parents! I knew I was in for a good time when the boys were immediately able to chat about any and everything as I began to get to know them. As an extroverted parent, who also has extroverted children…I appreciate kids who love to chat with me. On the flip side, I do also meet more introverted kiddos and hope as we spend some time together that they open up and trust me.
Aren’t they just precious? I’m so thankful when parents realize how vital it is to take a few seconds to capture a photograph of just them. As I tell many of my clients…your children and family members will cherish these images of you…get IN the picture!!!
One thing that I noticed right away…Mom being out numbered totally works for her in this family. I loved watching everyone give mom exactly what she wanted…no questions asked. Of course there was an occasional giggle or hip check between the boys but it gave everyone loads of laughs.
Look at these boys…three peas in a pod! Ha! I typically ask for the smile photo before we have a silly photo, but that did not happen here. They were all in perfect sync and insisted this one happened because it was tradition! I love it. Of course I had to show you the slightly more boring “look here and smile” picture…which doesn’t compare but is still super cute of these boys and their Dad.
As I eluded to earlier, this lady right here is the Queen of the Blake family castle. Those boys clearly love their mama so much!! A mom and son relationship is so special!
What do you think…did I tell a gross joke to get this laugh or did they pick on each other?? The world may never know.
And last but not least, one of my favorite images ever…mom and dad get to share a kiss and the kids are totally grossed out. HA!!! Priceless!!!
