This morning I met with the C. Family. We needed to update their family portraits because they have a new member: Marissa!
Using photos from our photoshoot about 2 years ago, Will and Emi decorated their house (and I mean their entire house). They have an extra-large framed photo above their fireplace, a wall gallery, photo books, and a digital frame that shows a constant slideshow of all their images! It almost looks like their house could be MY studio! It is awesome.
Soon after they finished their major photography project in their home, they found out Baby #3 was coming… and that meant we needed to take some new family photos!
Introducing 17-months old Marissa!
What was very important was getting a good formal portrait of the entire family.
Take One – Formal Family Shot
But we can’t have all photos where everyone is looking at me and smiling, right?
They are so cute! I think it’s so funny that Marissa, who is standing in the middle, is looking at Alex… and probably not understanding why everyone is cracking up!
I think everyone should have one formal shot, but my favorites are the candid ones.
An In-The-Moment Family Shot
Upside Down Alex
Will flipped Alex upside down and then tickled him! Thankfully he waited until Alex swallowed his mouth full of pretzels first – Phew!
Who thought being on the swings could look so good?!! (Doesn’t she look beautiful with her hair blowing in the wind? I love this natural shot of Sam!)
And I would like to end this blog with one of my random shots that have nothing to do with the family photoshoot!
Leaf with Sparkles
While taking photos of the C. family on a bench, I turned my head and noticed something sparkle on the ground. It looked like a piece of cheesy sparkly fabric, but after doing a double-take, I realized it was a leaf with dew on it! It was gorgeous.
