The Reames {from the archives]
WHAT: Families, Kids, Portraits   |   WHEN: May 25, 2012   |   WHERE: Dallas, TX
Still playing catch up on blog posts.  This one's from last November when my cousin and his wife and 2 kiddos came down and stayed with us for Thanksgiving.  We love hangin' out with the Reames clan because they're a ton of fun... and because Aaron is like my brother from another mother; he and I are neck & neck in race to be the most absent-minded.  We were both granted book smarts, but we left the building before they handed out common sense.

These guys are also native Ohioans (now living near Boston) and Buckeyes to the bone, so they'll always be welcome in our house. Not that we don't let non-Buckeyes in, they just have work extra hard to earn their keep... or pay us rent.  Aaron, Jen and the kids have a lifetime pass.

I love these images, not just because we're related, but because the images are so relaxed and fun and tell a story about who this family is.  Without ever meeting them, you know who they are and what their dynamic is like just by glancing at their photos.  Their personalities in these images are the same as they are when a camera's not pointed at them.  It's hard for some people be themselves in front of the camera. Not these guys.

We loaded up the car one afternoon and headed down to a park near downtown Dallas, and on another day they busted out their OSU gear for a trip to a park in our neighborhood.  Here is their story in photos.









This next image cracks. me. up.  Alexandra is layin' down the law, mafia style, on big brother Spencer.



If I had a photo of Aaron as a kid, it would look exactly like Spencer. Exactly.



Sweet moment.












We tried to do a serious pose of Jen and Aaron. Honest.  This is about as close as we got.





O-H-I-O!



Hey, sweet cousin Saige makes an appearance!  Wo-hoo!  Man, she looks so much younger in this image.















One day about 8-10 years from now, the kids will regret this next sequence.  Kind of an unfortunate anything-you-can-do-we-can-do-better moment. One day they'll learn that there are some things mommies & daddies do that brothers & sisters shouldn't.  Hilarious.







They used this on the Christmas card last year. Ready. Set. Celebrate!
