We had a random toasty November afternoon, so I dragged the kids, dog, and pjs to the park for some photo-fun in hopes to capture Christmas card images.... Voila... I saved the best for our card, but here are a few.
Fall weather can be a bit all over the place, especially this year! But have no fear, if your session is set for a day that might not be exactly optimal, we can turn lemons into lemonade... or chocolate into hot cocoa in this case.
We managed to get some amazing family photos, and then wrapped up with a warm cup of cocoa. Check out these amazing shots on a chilly evening in November.
What happens when a bunch of photographers decide to go for dinner? We stop and take pictures of each other before hand, of course! Lucky to have such beautiful and talented friends, inside and out.
This family has the most intense blue eyes I have ever seen, and they have grown by a 1. I never get over spending time with a family in their home, while they are getting used to their new normal. Big brother was such a trooper as the crazy of a new baby has entered the home and even took time to read his new brother a book.
Making time for family photos, in particular extended family photos, can seem like a daunting task. Our lives get so busy. And as the kids grow old, go off to school, move away and start their own families it can seem even more so.
Then comes along one of those all too rare moments where everyone is in town at the same time... you jam as much in as possible that it doesn't seem another activity can fit... but let me suggest trying to sneak an extended family session. Its a great way to treasure those moments together, and it doesn't need to be the overwhelming commitment that it might seem.
This extended family came from 3 different states, one couple was leaving for the airport directly from the shoot and yet, they were able to get in a quick 1 hour shoot and be on their way. Now they have these precious images to remember the time together. Check it out!
