Hi again, everyone!
Let me stop for a second to tell you that I am seriously the luckiest photographer in the world. My clients are always so wonderful to work with. That's true of my session with the Trattles family, too!
I met up with them in December at the studio because let's face it the weather in December in MN isn't perfect for outdoor photo-taking. While the weather was chilly outside, it was nice and cozy for the kids and parent in the studio. It was the Trattles family that made this shoot such a treat though.
The Trattles family consists of Scot, the sports junkie; Heather, the bookworm; Jordayn who is the oldest son and a music prodigy, Frances, the middle, is an energetic girl full of imagination, and Sullivan, Sully for short, is the happy baby of the family.
I asked mom what they enjoy doing as a family activity “our enjoyment is spending playtime together indoors or outdoors. Just being able to play and have fun together,” says Heather.
As you can see from the comments above and the photos below, this family is not only photogenic, but also a close-knit group who clearly love spending time together. Scot, Heather, Jordayn, Frances and Sullivan are lucky to have each other.
As you can see from our session highlights below, they are a fun family!
Let me begin by saying that I had the greatest time doing the session I'm about to post. This was the first time I've worked with the Trattles children and I savored every minute of it. We had a relaxed session with no real idea in mind. A go with the flow, organic, session. NO STRESS, which makes for happy kiddos and parents.
We had Jordayn, who is the quite type and a musical prodigy, Frances, who was celebrating her 4th birthday and was not shy about talking about herself, had lots of stories for me. Sullivan, Sully, was 7.5 months of squish. You know I LOVE a squishy baby. PLUS he had the best faux hawk I've seen on a little guy.
Quite an age difference between the kiddos, but that doesn't stop the love that they have for each other. Clearly, Scot and Heather have done a marvelous job raising them. Hopefully I'll get to work with them all in the future again.

We say goodbye
We now say a sad goodbye to the 2018 Family Representatives. You have seen their faces many times over the last year and have watched their family grow and change. I can't believe how much the kids have grown and changed over the year. Don't worry though, you will still see them every once in a while.
Thank you so much Rauch Family for a wonderful year full of memories captured!
We now say HELLO
With the 2018 Family Reps heading out of the spotlight, that means a NEW FAMILY is in. I would like you to say HELLO and for you to meet the Ihrke Family. Josh, Camie, Hannah and Gretta are a cute little family of 4 who are ready to take on the role of Michelle Towne Photography's 2019 Family Representatives.
