    1. I find that she gets more candid photos than I do – the kids seem to pose less for her. Maybe Johnny can get some candid photos of her in a year or two :)

  1. Aww, they are so cute! And Emma is a great photographer… I never would have guessed that that photo was taken by a little kid! It looks professional! :D

    1. I’ve been surprised at how much she pays attention to lighting and composition. She takes a lot of random kid photos, too, though :)
