The {B} Family and a little IKEA shopping {Documentary, Lifestyle Photographer | Tampa, FL}

Family real life session at IkeaFun time playing at Ikea with a great family

One of my favorite shopping places with the kids is IKEA. I can feed them there, let them run wild for the most part, dream about having a clean little house with all of these great colorful furniture pieces, and in general wear the kids out for a long nap on the way home. So what is a better place than a family real life portrait session? I was stoked when this gorgeous mom of 2 said lets go to IKEA for our family portraits.

In this Florida heat, any chance to shoot in the air conditioning works great for all involved, so we grabbed a few images outside and then headed in.

Did I mention how excited I was to shoot in the AC in the summer in Florida heat? :) Being able to follow this little 2.5 yr old and his dad around was just plain fun. He is like super dad!

It's important to have pictures without big brother sometimes too.

Sometimes breastfeeding can come with big obstacles and it's important to document that time of a mother's life. Also IKEA has super comfy couches!

After feeding the littles, mom and dad snuck in a little "alone" time, while the kiddos hung in the stroller having a little quiet time.
