Aren’t they such a good-looking crew? As I have mentioned in the past, I am awfully partial to families with little girls. Maybe this will change once I deliver my first baby boy here in a couple weeks, but I doubt it. I love the energy, sweetness and even the sass that little girls can sometimes exhibit.
I was first contacted by Stephanie earlier this year after she was referred to me by her sister, whose family I had worked with last fall. (You can check that session out here if you like.) It took us a little while to settle on a date that worked with both of our schedules, but we were finally excited and ready to go! And then…mother nature intervened. And we had to reschedule not once, but twice. Each time the forecast called for rain and gray skies. And each time the rain would pass overhead and never really materialize. It was frustrating. And I was getting nervous because my due date was approaching fast. But in the end, I wouldn’t have changed a thing. Because when we finally found a date that worked, the weather was PERFECT! No wind. No rain. No gray skies. Just a gorgeous night with a beautiful sunset. I have to give major kudos to Stephanie for her flexibility, understanding, and persistence in making sure everything was in place to allow us to capture her family in the best way possible. Totally worth the wait I think.
We started off downtown Lake Geneva
And after a few pictures there, we moved to a natural, field setting. This is where the we shot during ‘magic hour’ which is what photographers call that hour before sunset where the sun is low in the sky and gives off that warm, golden glow. It’s my favorite for family sessions. Speaking of favorites, here is my #1 image from this adorable family’s session
You can just feel the love in that one. And this one:And here are a couple of the girls with their mom and their dad.Doesn’t dad have the best smile?This is Halle. She is the sweetest young little 8 year old. Plus, she has a razor-sharp memory to boot. I mentioned the names and ages of my 3 girls in passing when we first started shooting, and when I started talking about one of them later, she said ‘She’s your 15 year-old right?’ Wow Halle!
Not to mention, we both share a love of our pet chickens 🙂And we can’t forget little Olivia. Can’t you just see her personality shine through here? She is a mix of full-on sweetness with a little bit of independence thrown in. And I like a girl who knows her own mind! We got along fabulously.And because mom and dad HAVE to have a photo togetherA couple more to finish up the night.
Thank you so much Stephanie, Brian, Halle and Olivia- for allowing me the honor of getting to know you and capturing your family photos.
