The Bender Family

What a treat it was to capture the Bender family again this fall. Last time I photographed Kathryn, Andy and their children, they were a family of four. Now, sweet Harper has joined the mix, adding in her unique spunk and personality. 

Four-year-old Hadley is enthusiastic and vivacious - I'm convinced that her favorite part of the session was when I took solo shots of her. She loved modeling and showing off all her dance moves for the camera!

Two-year-old Nolan is sweet, snuggly and dapper. You can tell he wants to be just like his Daddy. 

And little Harper just turned one! Of course we finished our session with a little smash cake. Harper cracked me up because when we first presented her with the cake, she loved it. Very curious and loved the sweetness of the icing. But then she realized she was a sticky mess and began to cry. Sweet girl. Nothing a whole box of baby wipes couldn't remedy!

I'm so grateful to follow the Benders through such significant family milestones. Happiest of birthdays to Harper!
