It's been another year and it was time to update the Caponi family photos. The kids are growing up fast so it is important to catch them before they become teenagers. Outside was rainy and gross so we moved the photoshoot inside for different styles of portraits.
Little Michael is a beautiful bouncing baby boy. Look at those huge eye and reddish-blonde hair!
Michael's grandparents are from the Gulf Shores so the shirt is a nod to them. He is already standing, and at the current rate of growth, he will probably be running his first half-marathon next year.
Jason is a wonderful Dad, but you can see that he literally has his hands full.
Just the boys of the family pose for portrait.
Alessandra is such a beautiful little lady. Here are two similar photos. I just changed the background and modified the poses to provide more choices for the parents.
Look at that smile with all her front teeth which is not always the case with kids her age.
Alessandra had been taking tap lessons so we wanted a photo of her outfit before she outgrows it.
Here she is showing off a very special gift that her Nonna gave her. Nona was her grandmother who absolutely adored her. I have rarely seen such a close connection between 2 people of different generations. You can read more about Nonna here.
I think she is a natural in front of the camera.
Here she is wearing her Sunday dress. I'm just crazy about this little girl.
And here she is monkeying around for the camera.
Baby Michael has so many expressions and most of them hilarious. His smile lights up the room and would melt even the most Scrooge-like grump.
Another portrait of the men of the house. I like to make comparison photos when kids are so small. Here you can see that Michael's feet are not even as big as one of Dad's fingers.
A revealing "behind-the-scenes" look shows that the photo shoot was a group effort. Even big sis was helping Michael find his smile. Mom was over my shoulder making all kinds of funny sounds to get the kids' attention. Considering that shooting indoors was PLAN B, everything worked out fine.
