Keith, Justine, Jake and Cole

On Sunday I met the Keeblers at Joe’s Farm Grill in Chandler. I would like to nominate Justine and Keith for the Most Energetic Parents in the World Award. What takes more energy than keeping up with two budding athlete toddler boys? I absolutely adore this family and it’s been so fun to see the boys grow up. I photographed Jake when he was a newborn, back in my film days! We had a blast, despite the lurking dangers:

To get photos of these kiddos that weren’t a complete blur, I spent a couple hours crawling, running, and climbing – and keep the camera settings on a fast shutter speed! 🙂

It was a gorgeous evening; the light was beautiful, and what more can a photographer ask for besides great Arizona weather at sunset to capture eyes like this?

Jake and Cole are going to be jocks. Check out this two-year old form:

Cole just kinda follows his big brother around and tries to do everything he does. 

And Jake periodically returns the attention:

Getting family shots was somewhat of a challenge with so many other more interesting things to do!

See what I mean? Parents of the year. 

I love the energy in these photos. Sometimes the ones that “don’t turn out” are the best ones after all. 🙂 

Before we wrapped up, we wandered across the street to check out the tractors – and we ended up getting my favorite shots of the day:

Keith, your wife is HOT!

Justine and Keith – thanks for your friendship and for the privilege of capturing these moments with you. Soon all the chubby toddler-ness will morph into lean, mean, athleticism, and I look forward to cheering the boys on in the NFL or wherever they end up. 🙂 I hope these photos are ones you’ll cherish in the years to come.

I am always honored when clients trust me to capture their vision, and equally so when my readers converse with me about what I've photographed or expressed here. I hope we'll have an opportunity to collaborate professionally and/or become friends. I'd love to hear what you think! - Holly
