It was a beautiful spring evening when I met Carrie and Jesse out for their maternity session. We lucked out with weather. All day it was a heavy overcast and then right as their session began the sun broke through the close and we had a beautiful golden hour. I can’t wait to meet their little man next month.
This family just keeps getting cuter and cuter. I remember the first time I met Jack two years ago for their fall family pictures. He was the sweetest 3 year old there was. Now he’s 5 years old and the best big brother to little Annabelle.
We had so much fun during their 30 minute session. My favorite part was when the kids were getting pulled on the quilt and Jack asked if his little sister could be removed from the quilt because he thought it would be more fun without worry about holding onto her 🙂
It’s been a year since I’ve seen the Dvorsky family and little John Paul is turning into quite the little man. I quickly learned this 2 year old’s favorite thing to say is “Ready. Set. GO!” As with all toddlers, he had us all on the move for the entire session.
I’m so glad fall stuck around just long enough to get the Kuhns family in for their family short session. It was a little cool that afternoon but considering it is now one week later and snowing, it would have been worse. Big sister Brienna had a good time showing her sister around.
So many of my families that come in for their annual family pictures have little kids. It seems that once kids reach age 6 or 7 that annual family pictures dwindle away. I love that the Hineline family comes back every year for their family pictures, even if they have “big kids” now. They will be able to look back and see how the boys grew from year to year. And we still have a lot of fun 🙂
It was Brynnley’s golden birthday the day we met for their outdoor family session so I made a point to run to the studio and fill up 1 golden balloon for her before heading to the park. At first she wasn’t too sure on what to do with it but eventually she was all smiles and had a great time with her mom and dad. She’ll be in the studio in a couple days for her smash cake session!
I originally was planning to meet the Shefchik family for their annual family pictures tomorrow but I was watching the forecast and decided it was looking a little too iffy for this weekend and asked them if they could meet me out earlier in the week. We lucked out and ended up having a fairly warm fall evening for their short session. Yes, it was overcast, but the fall calls still popped through every picture. By the end of their session it was getting pretty dark and I am in love with the moodiness of the pictures.
I’ve been photographing the Schultz family for 6 years. It’s great to catch up with them every year during their annual fall family pictures. This time they brought their family dog which made it extra special.
We had a beautiful afternoon for the quick outdoor session with the Wolff family. It’s been 9 months since I’ve seen half of the crew for little Miss Kennedy’s newborn portraits in the studio. It was my first time meeting the rest of the family. The four kids did fantastic. As always, the candid ones with grandma and grandpa are always my favorite.
Every year I donate a family session to my kid’s elementary school as a prize for kids that raise money for their annual “Rocket Run” fundraiser. This year the Pearson family won and due to a cancellation in my schedule, I was able to get them in so they could get in a fall family session.
