May Cover Family: Cinco Spirit Magazine

Every month I photograph the cover family for the The Cinco Spirit. These cover families have been pre-selected by members of the HOA. A few days before the print deadline, our original May cover family had to cancel. After a momentary panic attack over the looming deadline, I reach out to my friend Kelly and hoped they were available, like, in 2 days (totally doable, right?). Luckily, Kelly and her husband Eric and their two adorable daughters were able to make time one Friday night (they were actually leaving for spring break the very next day – so props for getting adorable outfits ready for a photos session on top of all the packing that has to be done).

As a photographer, I strive for authentic family photos for my clients. If I had to choose one word to describe this session it would be FUN (which, if you know them, this comes as no surprise). We really did have a good time – I broke out all my silly jokes and tricks to get the kids to relax and have fun and the rest naturally unfolded from there. I love, love, love the family connections I captured here. So real and so them.

Thanks again, Herrera Family, for helping out the magazine and being such a fun family to work with! I hope you treasure your photos for a lifetime!
