A Night with the Tafur Family

May 25, 2017

Guys, this session was SO incredible. It was the first time working with my amazing new hair and makeup stylist, Crystal, and we couldn’t have asked for a better family for the occasion! I met mom, Stacey, at the Leprechaun Lilly event last month. Stacey’s boys – husband Fernando and son Liam – keep her busy with crazy work schedules and tee ball, so a night of pampering before the session was right up her alley.

Crystal and I were blessed to spend tons of time prior to the shoot hanging out at the casa de Tafur, laughing and really getting to know the whole family before my lens cap ever came off. This family loves Disney, Chipotle, and playing Super Mario Brothers, so we’re baaaasically BFFs now. Liam entertained us with his dance moves, and Fernando took charge of getting “the boys” ready so that we could focus on mom.

 SWOOOOOON. I'm having some serious hair envy over here.

We had a blast exploring historic St. Mary’s City together, soaking up the last of the daylight and admiring the beautiful landscape and architecture around us.

Stacey mentioned during the consultation that she has very few images of Liam where he’s engaged with the camera. He must’ve liked my lens, because he hammed it up for me all evening long!

One of the sweetest moments of the evening came as Stacey and Liam snuggled in the garden enjoying the sunset. As the two were cuddled close, Liam leaned in, grabbed a locket that Stacey’s had since before he was born, and filled it with kisses. This is one of Liam’s signature moves, and I’m so glad I was able to capture it!

And of course, no AWP family session recap would be complete without an obligatory preschooler-noping-out-of-a-photo image. This may be one of my favorites yet. Enjoy!
