Updating Family Portraits

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?

Take Two!


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.
