The Westovers || McHood Reservoir Portraits

“Tim didn’t smile for our wedding pictures, so he may not smile for these.” Challenge accepted! The Westovers met me out at one of our very favorite spots last week for family pictures and we had a blast! After a few blustery and rainy days we were a little nervous about what weather we’d end up with, but the soft clouds were just right and the rain held off! 
Tim and Stephanie lived just up the road from us when we lived in Winslow, and she helped throw the baby shower for Ione! It was planned for 3 weeks before her due date, and ended up being a week after Ione pulled her early appearance! They pretty much saved my sanity, as after a week in the NICU I was so stressed I couldn’t put sentences together.
This family is so sweet and fun. The kids were amazing during the session, Tim and Stephanie were sweet, and the whole group was fabulous. And…I got Tim to smile. 🙂 Happy day all around! 

Could you get a cuter group of siblings?!
