As I am preparing today to go shoot this lovely family again, I realized I never got around to sharing their last summer’s amazing lifestyle session. I feel like this special family embodies all of what I love about shooting. To me this shoot is EXACTLY what I strive for at all of my sessions – carefree, relaxed, fun, spontaneous and beautiful light! I love that just following them around through this corn field brought out so many different emotions and expressions. Their interactions with one another are what I love to capture. Of course we tried to get a few posed shots but most of these were completely natural and organic. Juanita and Todd are amazing parents and such friendly, giving, beautiful people that I often find it hard to keep focused on the task at hand because they are so interested in my life and asking me a million questions (lol, love this by the way! not a bad thing!). And of course these children are absolutely adorable, trust me they’re just as cute in real life! I have had such a busy year and I often find it tough to prioritize posting blogs near the top of the list but I wanted to share this shoot both because I love it so so so much, but also as an example of what YOUR family could have if you book me for a lifestyle session. I know the Malcolm family cherishes these memories and I can’t wait to see what we come up with tonight now that the newest addition to their family is here (she was just a little bean in Juan’s tummy this night!). It’s going to be fun!!
Had fun with this cute little family today. It took some effort to get Lincoln to smile but I liked his serious faces too! So adorable! And I know mom will be happy to see I managed to get a good one of this standing pose, we tried so hard!
Got to work with this lovely family again the other day. It’s always a pleasure and their little guy is such a cutie! Hard to believe that just three years ago I was working on their wedding images! Can’t wait to share more from their lifestyle shoot.
This was such a treat. I wanted to try my hand at ‘mini sessions’ that have become very popular in the last couple years. And what better people to involve than some of my tried and true customers over the years, not to mention, great friends! They are all so special to me. It was a fun time and an absolutely gorgeous day. We were all sweating! Here’s a few of my faves! Look at these cute little kiddies! I even got in on one!
This one just melts me, I knew it would be great as soon as I took it. Love that I got to capture some more cute shots of this little peanut yesterday. Julia is two! She has a lot more hair than last year and we got a few more smiles too! Thanks Melling family for the fun shoot!
