Come fly with me!

Even though we largely focus on offbeat weddings, sometimes we can’t help but share some of the awesomely unusual photo submissions we receive.  Today’s submission marks a first for the FP blog: Family Portraits!  So, what kind of portrait session do you do when dad is a pilot, mom is a vintage diva, and the kids are rambunctious cuties?  A vintage day at the airport, naturally!  Make sure your tray tables and seats are in their upright & locked positions because the Duffy family is about to take you on an unbearably adorable ride!

Since the Duffy’s seems to have broken my “cuteness” barometer with their squeezable family, we induct them into the Royal Court of Petticoat!
