When Madeline and Lydia entered our 2010 portrait giveaway (yay!), we immediately knew their family was the perfect fit for us. Lydia is an aspiring photographer, and she and Madeline had been self-proclaimed “blog stalkers” for ages, so I felt like I knew them before even meeting. They wanted to surprise their parents on Christmas with the session if they won and ended their entry with “More importantly, we feel that we would all instantly connect and feel like life-long friends.” Boy, were they right!

This was their most recent professional family photo, taken over thirteen years ago!!

Lydia wowed us with her mad photo bombing technique!

Adopt me. Please?!

I’m telling you- It was love at first sight!

Who doesn’t love spontaneous family skipping?!

Seriously- Adopt me? I can totally be home for Christmas! ;)

These two are my favorite ever- They’re absolute goofballs like me and my sister. :)

We love you all!!!!!!! Thank you so much for the amazing time- Cupcakes soon?!

More Root Photography Family Sessions!

  3. Ok, I was SORE when I didn’t win this last year. But, I can so see why you chose this family. Love the photos, old and new. Amazing job, as always…but it helps when you have great subjects :)
