The Flynn Family – Raleigh family photographer

Feb 10, 2015

I first photographed Jenna and Joe in 2012. Their two little pups were hysterical during their shoot and gave me one of my all time best doggie photo bombs.  Now Sandy Pants and Katie have a baby brother!  Joey was about six months old during his session at the end of November.  He was mostly smiles and even showed off his skills of sitting up and tummy time!  We really had such a relaxed and fun session together! We were able to go with the flow and capture sweet candid moments.  My favorite photos are the series from the front porch.  As Jenna said during the session, life is not picture perfect but we often only show those “perfect” family photos.  I love the naturalness of the final images on the porch. One dog looking one way. One licking little Joey.  I also love the photo of Joey with the paci in his mouth. He really was happy for most of the session but fussed a little bit, as you will see in one photo.  That’s life.  Especially life as a new parent.  And no matter what, it’s a beautiful journey!

Jenna made this comment about the above photo on facebook. I love it!

“Can you tell I am sweating in this picture?! I was sweating. Wrangling so many little stubborn things into a picture isn’t easy and neither is capturing the exact perfect moment, but Tara always manages to do just that! And makes sure you can’t tell I’m sweating.”
