The Cookie Session!
So it has been five years since I first met this gorgeous family, and I knew from the moment that they wanted to incorporate their mini pig into the family portraits that they were a family after my own heart. Since then we have gotten to do some awesomely fun family photos including playing in the rain and playing games in their wonderful shop (if you haven't checked out Provisions in historic downtown Waxhaw you are missing out!). This year was so much fun because we met in their home and got festive by making cookies! Thank you for dealing with my shenanigans!
(since it normally doesn't require 6 people to make cookies, this shot may or may not have included the direction: "now everyone seem REALLY excited to measure out the chocolate chips... even you don't measure those with a cup, you measure that with your heart" )
