You meet Ali and when you find out she’s an educator, you nod your head in agreement when she explains that she’s a Kindergarten teacher. Teachers of the littlest just have a certain inward calm, patience about them that is practically of divine origin. I don’t know how she does it (or any kindergarten teacher!) but it’s been so wonderful to have another pair of eyes looking out for Laidy as she trounces through the halls of her elementary school. Ali has been a great resource for me as I have many questions about what’s upcoming for Laidy and it’s always in that calm, gentle, reassuring manner that even calms me! Can you tell I’m envious?! :)

Enough about me, here’s Ali and her sweet family! The last time they were in front of my camera, Lil’ Miss Molly was just 6 months!

When Ali told me she brought bubbles because Molly’s dress was a bubbly pattern and whimsical, I did that head nod thing again because she hit the nail on the proverbial head! :) And Molly’s personality was right along with it!

A few quick candids of a tickle fight (while dressed nicely for photos, I know….)

BUBBLES!!! (See if you can find the bubble that’s popping!)

Ali + Rob are fortunate to have Rob’s dad nearby, so he’s become a staple to our photo sessions too! :)

Ali + Rob: Thank you so much for having me back again! Your family is darling and they’re doing great with their photos every single time. Can’t wait to watch them grow in front of my camera and just as friends with our kids too. :)
