Taking pictures on a Sunday afternoon

I have had the pleasure of taking pictures of this family for over four years now, beginning just days after the youngest girl was born. These girls are so sweet and playful, when I look at these photos I can't help but smile. I'm lucky too because this little one is also in the morning preschool class I teach, so I get to see her twice a week. Photographing people with whom I have developed a relationship is so special to me, and taking pictures of children is my favorite. Through picture taking I feel like I get to know them even a little more.
