mom contacted me way back at the beginning of the summer with a very simple request. “I really want some new family photos with all of my kids, before the youngest also heads off to college. Oh, and if we can get the two dogs, puppy June, and ten year old lab, Lucy, in also, that would be great.” What a lucky person I was to get that call. The warmth and camaraderie exhibited by this family was so wonderful to be in the midst of. So here you go mom and dad…..a little peek before everyone heads off to their next new phase of life.
I have always loved COOK’S magazine. Not only do they always feature great recipes, but they explain why things do and don’t work. Years ago, when my youngest was showing such an interest in cooking, I started buying the year end issues, which were hard bound versions of the bi-monthly copies. Natalie has begun working her way through them, and last night, we were treated to an old Iowa classic, that was better than any I have ever taste. The pork “T”. She nailed it. Crispy on the outside, moist on the inside ( yeah, I sound like one of those old Shake n Bake commercials, I know)
But here…let’s let the images speak for themselves:
Oh and I can’t forget about the homemade potato salad she made! Yum!
because I must be dreaming….my ‘job’ can’t possibly be this much fun ! Met this delightful young lady for a quick session today, and my goodness, isn’t she adorable?!! Her mom and sister came along with her, and L, you did a fabulous job handling the reflector, and mom even helped tote stools around….summer job next year?! I so thoroughly enjoyed your enthusiasm for all of my ideas, and absolutely cannot wait to have the chance to capture the rest of the family this fall!!
here is a little sneak peek until your full gallery is ready!
We beat the rain this evening….but just barely! The entire time, thunder was rumbling off in the distance, and we only had a few glimmers of sunshine at the very start of the session, but that did not dampen the spirits of this beautiful family. I knew mom was anxious for a sneak peek, so here it is!!
you can see the storm clouds collecting in the distance ( I did have you guys sign that liability waiver in case of lightning strikes, right)
the oldest daughter’s expression made me laugh here….a funny comment had been made by dad, thus the reaction…perfect!
I’ve watched these two girls grow up, but it always shocks me when I finally realize what beautiful young women they have become, and wonder where the time has gone!
Many more to come! Hope this will tide you over.
and mom is a black and white photo girl, so I wanted to post one of each of this shot…..I have to say, I would have a hard time choosing. I love the depth of the greens behind them, but also love the pop of the family in the black and white. Such a dilemma!
What happens after the session? how do you display your new images? Well for Dusty, he is forever preserved in a great big custom designed coffee table book.
Just a reminder, if you are thinking of a session with the hopes of getting an image for a holiday card, now is the time to book. Available dates fill up quickly! Email me at : firstname.lastname@example.org
