You’re insecure,
Don’t know what for,
You’re turning heads when you walk through the door,
Don’t need make-up,
To cover up,
Being the way that you are is enough,

Everyone else in the room can see it,
Everyone else but you…

Anyone who has turned on the radio in the last six months has heard this One Direction song. Why am I singing it for you now? Because I can’t stop giggling as I think about the entire Willard family getting their photogenic on by singing this song together. And dancing. Needless to say, I was thoroughly entertained the entire session.

I’ve been talking to Kelli and Shane via the internet for a long time now, and we were finally able to meet for the first time during my trip to Utah. They are the kind of people that make you feel like a better person just for crossing paths with them. What a cool, awesome, rad, fantastic family. And they have awesome clothes 🙂

And finally, a mini session on how to model from the model divas themselves…

    What a beautiful family. As usual, I am in awe of your ability to capture emotion and fun in family sessions — in such an artistic way! If you are ever in the Sacramento area (it KILLS me that you guys were in Napa while our family was on vacation!) I would LOVE for you to photograph our family. I know I would treasure the images and I also know I would learn SO MUCH from watching you work!
