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.
