I first photographed the Painczyk’s when they were a family of 3 – They called me a few months later to let me know that they were expecting a little boy, so we combined their annual family shoot with a maternity shoot & then followed it up with a newborn shoot once Slade arrived. Now, 16 months later, we met again to document how the kids have grown.
Slade is very definitely on the move and wasn’t interested in standing still for longer than 15 seconds. So it was a fun challenge to get everyone else lined up and then adding him in for the shot. I promised them that I wasn’t going to give up until I had a few least 2 family portraits and I’m pleased to say I was able to deliver.
Taylor is growing into a beautiful little girl, turning on her charm when she needs to, and Slade – Well. You’ll see. A gorgeous family.
Thank you for calling me back Painczyk’s.
