caticonslite_bm_altThe Laffoons {extended family}

This summer I met Gretchen. She’s a stylish mom with a radiant smile. In conversation she told me that her family had a tradition of taking family photos every fall. Her husband Gary is originally from Jefferson City and they had recently moved the family here. I was very excited a few months later when she asked me to capture their extended family, too. So despite grey skies, we set out for a fun session in mid-September at the Governor’s Garden. We began with Gary and Gretchen, and their two adorable boys Jackson and Austin.

I love the one on the left catching all their giggles with the capitol in the background.

And so the boys wouldn’t have to sit still for too long, we played a game of peek-a-boo in the openings in the stone wall.

Next up was Al and Sue who will celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary next year.

Cathy (middle) is Al and Sue’s daughter, and her daughter Madeline makes the third generation.

And here’s the whole extended Laffoon family, plus one of just grandparents and grandkids.

Boys will be boys and, boy, did they climb on everything!

I plotted with the boys to see if they could show me how they “get” their grandpa’s nose and ears. Al confessed later that he’s know to “clown” around.

We ended the session down at the landing so the boys could check out the trains. Austin was a little alarmed at first by how loud the train’s horn was…

But he warmed up and waved as the train passed by – a perfect ending to a fun shoot with the Laffoon family!

Thank you Gretchen and Gary!
