My favorite time of the photography year is here: fall mini sessions!
I love working with this family, and especially for their fall minis. They always have the best outfits, and their little girls are so cute and so cooperative. I mean, how can you resist curly hair and a joyful face, and a little dumpling with a big smile and blue eyes?? It's not often you get kiddos at these ages who will sit and actually smile and pose for the camera without having to chase them down (trust me, my kids are close to these ages, so I know!). This has got to be one of my favorite sessions I've ever done, and the kids did so well and had so many cute shots, that I couldn't help but throw in a few extra images.
You guys, we have been planning this photo for over a year, so I know how hard it is to get family photos, but it is soooo worth it.
I am the oldest of 8 kids ages 14-34 years old, and with families of our own, crazy schedules all on different shifts and different days, it is not easy to coordinate a photo shoot for 25 people. But we did it. Some of my siblings managed to ask off work. It was my brother and sister-in-law's anniversary, so they postponed their anniversary plans until after the shoot. There was a lot of rearranging, but I am so grateful everyone made it work. My brother lives with his family in Vancouver, Canada, and will be a missionary in South Africa, so I was dead set that this was happening, even though baby (well, her face anyway) isn't in the photo. And I'm so grateful to my sister-in-law's generous parents who took time to show up and make the kids laugh and press the shutter so I could be in the pic too. I will treasure these forever. ♥
Epic grandkid photo fail, but honestly I love it. Ha ha!
Yes, my children do look like Civil War soldiers in posed photographs.
My nephew might need a redo. It was not his day. ;)
It's been a few years since I last photographed these two, so I was very excited to work with them again. Mindy asked me if I would do the session at their home, and I happily obliged. I love the connection of clients to their home, and honestly I would love to get into more documentary, unposed sessions in clients' homes. We were even able to get the pups involved in the session, as they are very much a part of this family. I had a great time working with this mother-son duo in their beautiful yard.
