Family portraits with a little leaf-pile-fun--
This family may be my most photographed of all clients. From engagement portraits to a fishing-themed-first birthday party and now portraits of the full family of four, I think we've covered quite a few of the major milestones over the past 10 years.
For the latest family Christmas card, we opted for a simple outdoor setting with a few props thrown in, including fallen leaves, to entertain the kids. It was my first time to photograph Bowen, who just turned 2. He was a breeze...all smiles the whole time. Leyton made me work a bit harder for her portraits this go around, but after chatting a bit about fairytale princesses and picking flowers, a couple of good smiles popped out.
Such a beautiful family!
I'll take a smile for a photo any day, but sometime the images that steal my heart the most are ones with straightforward expressions and no frills...just an honest capture of life. I have another photo of Leyton from her 2-year session where she's sniffing a wildflower too. It's funny how some thing don't change.
Last but not least, a little fun with a pile of leaves. This is almost always a winner for smiles.
