Sandi has brought her grand-babies for sessions several times since 2008. She and her husband live in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, but they have a daughter who lives in Northwest Arkansas. Sandi called me and said she’d been going through a lot of family pictures and didn’t have very many recent ones of she and her husband Dan and wanted to set up a session with me while they were in town. Sandi and Dan will be celebrating their 35th wedding anniversary this coming January…how awesome is that?
They were in town for their grand-daughter’s fourth birthday. Originally Ava wasn’t going to come with them, but something fell through with a sitter and she ended up coming along. I loved getting to see and photograph the sweet little girl who I met when she was a tiny newborn.
I was trying to get some real/genuine smiles out of Ava and Sandi told Dan to start saying what had made her laugh so hard the night before. He started saying some silly rhyming words and she’d add some more and would just CRACK UP! It was so cute watching them go back and forth for several minutes. 🙂
