A few weeks ago the Sloan family was in town for a visit and they asked us to shoot a few family portraits of them...we have been dying to do this since the arrival of their sweet little Paisley. The last time we took photos of the Sloan's was when Maddux was just a little baby, you can see those photos by visiting their website and going to their "about Sloan Photographers" section. I can't believe how time has flown by! I had Matt choose the location, they were staying in Anaheim close to Disneyland and found an entrance to the canal right off of the 57 freeway, Matt thought it would be the perfect place for the sitting.

Many of our readers may already know this, but Matt and Justin have been best friends for over 13 years! It is so fun see our families grow together and it's even more fun when we get to see eachother! We friggin' LOVE the Sloan family!

My favorite shot of the day!









I think the smirk on Maddux's face is priceless!







Hudson, "Mommy, Maddux is my best friend! He's my best friend Mommy!"

OH WOW! These are really amazing. It's funny, since I follow them on twitter I feel like I can really see their personality that much more so in the pictures. Wonderful job in capturing what seems to be the essence of who they are. :) What an attractive family.

Yesterday Hudson grabbed Sloan and gave him a huge hug and then said, "Mom, take a picture of us with your big camera, pwweeeeaaassseeee!" This is a VERY RARE occasion! Hudson usually sees our camera and books it for the the opposite direction, so I took advantage!
