after several months of trying to coordinate our schedules, we finally had the chance to photograph this trio of adorable siblings. mom and dad were originally supposed to be joining them, along with their adult siblings, but dad and several of the other siblings had an important conference to attend so they decided that "just the kids" this time would be photographed.
fearful of the "torrential" weather (... not quite. it's just been so long since we've had real rain!) the day before, we were greeted with the bluest of skies and the warmth of the autumn sun. we met up with the family at the benicia community park or what we locals call the "big slide park," where ricky, juliet, and zoey were able to be kids at their best, playing and having fun! they will definitely be sending out some beautiful holiday cards this winter!
zoey loves to play peek-a-boo!
juliet is one sassy, independent girl!
ricky is a big goofball!
"don't swing too hard, big brother!"
hamming it up for the camera, with zoey's talented "self-bunny ears."
ever see a 1-year old do that? =P
