This family was truly a joy. When we finally had the opportunity to talk to one another over the phone, this momma and I came up with the perfect plan for this session. Besides a few classic portraits for extended family members, this momma wanted to spend the session capturing the connection between the members of her family and telling their own unique story. I couldn't have been more elated with this concept! She told me about the beautiful garden in their backyard and the old farm-style house they lived in. We talked about what they liked to do and what characterized them as individuals and as a family....as a result, we played, laughed, acted silly, read books, and even cooked dinner! Although their daughter was reluctant to talk to me at first, we ended up being best buddies by the time dinner was done!
