I met the Sommers family pre-twins at a baby shower hosted by my lovely designer Rae. Kate and I bonded over wedding photographer stories (she's one too! yay, friendworking!) and she was at that time, pregnant with Charlie and Arthur - literally about to give birth any minute! YAY BABIES!

We've met up a couple times to take photos but this time? They let me in on their turf - the most dreamy home in NE Mpls and I honestly wanted to stay forever, playing blocks, reading books and being silly. Charlie and Arthur just celebrated their first birthday and they just keep getting cuter. Those blue eyes, Arthur? It was love at first sight! Charlie's smirky smile and daredevil nature won my heart instantly. These two are probably the most "liked" babies on Instagram, so the chance to get them in front of my camera as a family of four felt like a dream come true. And baby TOMS? HIGH FIVES!

Best part ever? They were willing to model for part of a BIG HUGE ANNOUNCEMENT coming your way in a few short weeks ... but for now, can we play in your home, together, in... CALIFORNIA?! Get this, friends: I'LL BE HOSTING FAMILY SESSIONS IN CALIFORNIA ON MAY 25TH AND 26TH!
