The Johnston’s

It’s hard to even know where to start with this family — they are very dear to my husband and I — and the son and daughter-in-law of dear friends as well. This is James and Cassi, parents to their beautiful 15 month old twins, Cooper and Paige who wore. me. out. Ok, I think they wore their mom and dad out too — and Grandma Hon who came along to help me. All the bells and whistles and jumping and animal sounds I could think of couldn’t get those two babies to smile and look at me at the same time. Geez, is that too much to ask?! They were much more interested in “freedom” away from anywhere it is we wanted them to be. And seriously, if you were 15 months, fairly new walkers in new unfound territory, wouldn’t you want to walk and explore too? You bet you would! 🙂  They are the sweetest babies and James and Cassi are wonderful parents to say the least. Cassi is a photographer herself and keeps up with beautiful images for every milestone. I’m honored to have been asked to photograph them all again. Love you all! Mary

I made them for when we shot their maternity pictures as they held them to their ears and Cassi’s belly. Paige is very observant of how they work.


And as you can see, she is picking right up on how to use them. I see social media in her future. 🙂

Oh Mary, they are such good pictures. Sorry for not being the best helper. I kind of distracted them away from the camera. With my help I’m not sure how you got so many good ones! Of course they are some of my very most favorite people on the earth–as is the amazing photographer. I sure do love this little family.

Hi Mary,

We LOVE the pictures! ALL OF THEM!
Thank you so much for taking our pictures. We do have some busy little munchkins, but you managed to capture some super AWESOME pictures!

Oh the lips on Paige in that picture with Mama, I just want to smooch them! And Cooper has the most beautiful stare into the camera. Gorgeous kids!!!

Good job on capturing twins! It is nice to be asked by a photographer who knows her art.
