As Helen would say, it’s not Steve or Stevie, it’s Steven.  This is not Steven’s first time through this life.  In fact, it appears he’s a grown man in a really small human suit.  He’s already a superb golfer and he’s not even two.  Helen tells me that she barely used a bib on the kid, and it’s hilarious to see him get dirty or wet.  Steven has no tolerance for dirty clothes, and why should he? He’s like 40. 
I really, really love this family.  Ryan and Helen are high school sweethearts which is always nauseating. I mean awesome. 😉 And Steven is *beyond* adorable, insanely smart, super athletic, and utterly hilarious. Oh, and two.   They’re just a cool, confident, chill, funny, fun crew to be around.  It was amazing to photograph them, even if I’m a little too immature for Steven’s taste…
We started at home, went to a bakery, and then had to head over to the construction site…
enjoy. thank you. love.

Sighhhh…. the Ouellettes….(heart bubbles emanating from my chest).  So… I was lucky enough to photograph Courtney and Chris’ wedding in 2009 (which you can see HERE). That was a pretty big year for the newlyweds because they got a dog (Buddha), a baby (Charlotte), and moved (Austin).  I’m lucky enough to photograph them when they’re back in Mass for visits, but this time I went THERE.  I stayed with these absolutely beautiful people while I was in Austin last week and I’m more in love than ever.  It’s thanks to Courtney that I was able to photograph the other three wonderful crews in Austin.  Staying with this family was such…a…nice..time.  I hope I did their family and their love justice in this shoot. God, I hope you fall in love with Charlotte.  I hope you see how incredibly sweet and hilarious she is.  I hope you fall in love with Chris and Courtney, as a couple, as parents, and as individuals.  I hope you see how nice and loving and generous and fun they are.
The Texas Blue Bonnet flowers were in full bloom on the hazy and beautiful day we shot together so they’re blue-ness is highly featured in the shoot. 

C, C, and C (and B)… I’ll remember your generosity and kindness last week for the rest of my life.  I cherish our friendship. I adore you all.  I hope to see you again very soon.  Thank you so much for cherishing what I do for a living.  Your support means the world to me, I’m honored to be your photographer and I love you.

Let’s look at some pictures…

All they wanted was a baby, I swear!!  But I bet they *actually* wished for it three times and the stork got all confused and well, next thing ya know… Ansen, Madeline, and Reagan arrived.  That was two years ago this month and it’s been all bon-bons and easy street at the Farrell house since.  Or the opposite of that.  And good LORD they’re a happy, calm, fun, *adorable*, household! These are five happy people and it was super sweet (and utterly awe inspiring) to be able to photograph them.  God, I don’t even know what to say… there’s just endless happiness and sweetness at this home.  I hope I did it justice. 
Thank you. Enjoy…and dayumm…GOOD LUCK!!!!
