Apparently Matthew was hungry. There are many shots of him like this.
Please! Feed him!
The kids really enjoyed pelting Dad for some reason. He was such a good sport.
Apparently someone said something very funny. They give each other a hard time, those McCormick's.
This is one of my favorites, because they are all cracking up, and Mike is happy and looking right at the camera. What a good sport, and proud family man.
This one cracks me up too. I have about six of these, and Matthew is never looking at the camera. Never. Here, he is as if he's thinking "What about me?" Or, more likely, "This photographer woman is cuh-razy. "
Yep, I love this one too.
And I adore this one. Are they all looking? No. But its natural, and it really shows them off as a family. I'm not gonna lie - I contemplated trying to swap the kids out with another "posed" one of them because I loved this one of Mary and Mike so much. And I tried. And it looked bad. My husband came and looked, and he loved it just as it is. Because it shows who they are. Period.
And at the end of the night, Mike was such a gentleman and carried Mary out of the sticker patch because she had sandals on. This is love, people. And they've been married for 20 some years! He did not even hesitate.
