Oh, the Eakmans. Seriously one of my favorite families of all time. I met Tawni through instagram after falling in love with her shop HENRI which has a variety of offerings from vintage clothing, handmade ceramics and artwork. She is seriously one talented woman and to make things even better, she’s a kick ass mama to three beautiful children whom I adore.
I’ve had the privilege of getting to know this little family on more than one occasion. I photographed Tawni’s best friends wedding back in December of 2018, see more here and undoubtedly, the youngest, Huey, stole my heart and is now my boyfriend but I think he forgets.
The Eakman’s family session at Discovery Park was so imperfectly perfect, you couldn’t even try to repeat it if you wanted to. Sweet Harlow was not feeling well and kicked things off by throwing up under a tree and remained sick and unamused the entire time. Odie, still just a pup, did not want to sit still and neither did Huey who had more energy than all of us combined. Hayes, the oldest, bless his heart, did his best to follow instructions and Mom and dad were certainly out of patience but you’d never know because they’re such good humans.
Enjoy a little peek from this beautifully chaotic family session below.
