The Childs Family | Family Portrait | Raleigh, NC

Hi again, everyone! Let me stop for a second to tell you that I am seriously the luckiest photographer in the world. My clients are always so amazing to work with. That's true of my session with the Childs family, too!

I met up with them last week at the Childs home (which is also the home that Rick grew up in) and the weather was perfect for photo-taking. It was one of those warm winter afternoons, and the sun peeked out just enough. While the weather was fine, it was the Childs family that made this shoot such a success.

The Childs family consists of Rick and Susan, Ricky (11), Cooper (8), Mary (7), and Emma (5). The family wanted to create some fun family pictures, but they also wanted to document sweet Emma as she is now after being adopted from China in October. Soon, Emma will have surgeries to correct her smile, but that did not stop her from smiling for the camera that day.

As you can see from the photos below, this family is not only photogenic, but also a close-knit group who clearly love spending time together. Rick, Susan, Ricky, Cooper, Mary and Emma are lucky to have each other.

Our session highlights are below!
