I feel like part of the reason I usually take candid photos is because nothing in my life stays still... ever. So it's just better to embrace all of the movement and chaos than to tell everyone "JUST HOLD STILL!!!!" all the time. Not my style.
That being said, it was a great opportunity to do more formal portraits for Joe's cousins who are not-so-little anymore. I miss getting to see his extended family so I was glad to have a chance to snap some photos on such a beautiful day and do some catching up!
