The Howerton Family

It’s really crazy to see how much one family can change in just 8 months.  When I first met the Howerton family back in February they had just gone from being a family of 5 to a family of 6.  Kembe had just arrived from Haiti and could speak hardly any English.  It seemed that he wasn’t exactly sure where his place in the family was.  He was a ball of energy and a super sweet kid who was trying to learn a whole new life with a family.

Just 8 months later that same boy speaks fluent English.  I couldn’t even hear the slightest accent.  He is funny, fun, and loveable.  He loved on me the whole shoot giving me hugs and being my buddy.  Obviously this kid has awesome parents and a great family.  If you read Kristen’s blog you know that things haven’t always been easy for them.  They have their ups and downs like every normal family.  But, if you could just see how happy Kembe and all of their kids are, I think all that hard work has been worth it.  I just love this family.  Here’s the slideshow!

Getting a natural smile out of kids isn’t easy.  How did I get this shot?  I actually didn’t do anything.  Right before this shot was taken Kembe farted and said, “Opps!  I tooted!”.  Classic!

Jafta is such a great big brother.  Looks like he loves having another boy in the family!

India and Kembe have the same exact birthday.  If that isn’t fate I don’t know what is!  They just turned 4.  I love their relationship.

During our last session Karis wasn’t walking yet.  Now she’s a pro!

I love when we have time to get some alone time with Mom and Dad.  Thanks to Jennifer Imus for coming along and watching the kids so I could get these shots!
