Worden Family Portraits
I have to say this is my favorite family I've ever done family photos for. Definitely NOT the easiest. But my favorite. This is my sister, brother-in-law and two adorable nephews. We've attempted family photos numerous times throughout the years and it's always more work than usual because Noah (6) and Elijah (5) are both autistic. Noah's gotten a lot better and will hold still and try to smile at the camera. But he's easily distracted and Elijah is usually the distraction. The boy won't sit still and won't look at the camera no matter what a loud fool I make of myself :). But I love them to death so we always do our best. Even though it takes a lot of energy, we always end up with some cute photos in the end. The best thing to do is keep moving. So we do things that are fun for the boys. Noah loves swinging:
And recently he's taken up basketball:
It's pretty amazing. The basket towers over him but he ends up making his under-handed shots a good percentage of the time. Here's some more cute shots of him playing:
And a cute one of Josh and Noah. Josh is so good with the boys.
Here's my sister taking Elijah down the slide:
After some fun on the playground equipment we went on the merry-go-round. Elijah lit up.
And finally we ended our outing with a ride around Freestone park on the train.
I love this one of Elijah. Poor guy was SO cold by this point.
And one last shot of the whole clan:
I love you guys!!!
