Can we just take a moment to gush over this adorable family?
This is the third year in a row that Aaron and Marisa of Aaron Hoskins Photography, and their two sons Isaac (on the left) and Oliver (on the right) asked me to photograph their family portraits. I’m always honored each year, because I’m completely enamored with this family and I’m so fortunate to call them my dear friends! Aaron and I used to work together long ago at a consumer electronic wholesale distributor (say that 10x fast), and years later, ironically enough, we both ended up in the photography industry, reconnecting at an industry meeting. Crazy small world! Now, I love spending time with them any chance I get. They have some of the biggest, most genuine hearts I’ve ever met – always watching out for me and encouraging me in ways I’m endlessly grateful for. They are incredibly family-focused (Aaron is one of seven), and therefore, they naturally treat their friends like family too. Aaron is kind of like an older brother – making sure I’m not dating any jerks. And Marisa is like a sister you want to share a closet with and talk about how much it sucks being a girl sometimes.
And then you have their mini-humans. Isaac has his father’s dashing good looks and his mother’s sweet personality. Oliver is just as mischievous as his father, but is as cute as a button just like his mother…which will serve him well, because how can you not forgive that face?! So far, their opposite personalities haven’t caused too many tears in the Hoskins household. The boys get along super well (or so I’ve been lucky enough to witness) and can be won over with M&M’s! Haha. ;)
Aaron is clearly the jokester of the family and teaching his sons well.
Ahh! How cute are they?! I just love them together.
Oliver loves to show his muscles….and poking noses. So stinkin’ cute!
The Hoskins may look like your average family, but really…..they’re all SUPERHEROES!!! Can’t believe I got to photograph Captain America, Spiderman, Batman, and Superman! I’m still recovering from this moment. So.much.fun!
Isaac loves Spiderman….I mean Spiderman loves himself….more than anyone else I know!
Back to their secret identities for some individual portraits….
Thank you, friends! I had such an amazing time with you guys, as always! To me, you are The Incredibles! Love you all!
