I have photographed this little family since the birth of their twin boys three years ago, and they have always been great subjects! I was sad to see that they were moving from Colorado to Oregon, but when I scheduled a PureBaby Newborn Workshop in Salem, Oregon, I was just down the street from their new home! One friend said, "I didn't know that Beaton Photography did house calls!" Maybe that will be our new tagline! And their backyard was perfect for these photos!
The Smith Family slideshow is online here...
and one of my favorite photos of all time... when the twins were one and Lily was three - the twins weren't having anything to do with this photographer! Although I know the photo makes it look like Lily is the culprit - she was honestly just trying to be sweet and comfort them!
and another fun story from Salem - my first few hours in town I stopped at the grocery store and I got a hundred dollar bill from the good samaritan Benny! I immediately payed it forward, but feel fortunate to have felt and shared some Benny love! More info about Benny can be found on this Oprah website link: Be Like Benny!
