Where do I even start with the Cantwell family?
Kelly is not just a mom, she’s a cool mom. She taught fitness skating, yes, like on roller skates, and is in a roller Derby league in Milwaukee. Chris is a history professor and just wrote a book! Emerson is the oldest and he has some hardcore modeling talent. He’s fun, smart and is a pretty good big brother to Elliot, who is the goof ball of the family. These boys kinda have my heart now. Brothers are the best!
The session was perfect! The boys were full of stories and loved educating me on dinosaurs. I kind of wanted to give up my photography career and become their full-time nanny. I genuinely miss them already since they’ve moved to Milwaukee.
What was an initially adorable idea in my head, ended in a literal bloody disaster. After having a completely flawless session, I came up with this great idea to have the boys run up behind their parents and tackle them. However, Elliot accidentally hit Emerson and knocked his tooth loose. Like, as in, he lost his tooth during the session.
Naturally I just kept taking photos of this, because duh. I’m not going to lie, I was super excited that I got to experience a real-life childhood memory!
Kelly and Chris, you and your boys are my favorite! I love you as individuals and I love you all together even more. I hope that someday I get to create a family just as great as yours. I know that we might have just met a few months ago but I have a feeling there’s a road trip to Milwaukee in my future!
