One of my favorite aspects of this job is being able to capture a family who either hasn’t had portraits done ever or that it’s simply been a really long time. It makes the session so much more special knowing that these images are truly capturing a season of life and putting it into tangible memories. Tangible moments that may be otherwise soon passed over or easily become foggy in the details. When I met up with the M family, we made sure to capture little J’s super blonde hair, his love of the outdoors, and his special pup for his sweet parents. I loved being able to help Shannon plan out her vision for our time together. She did such a great job with the little details! Great wardrobe colors, important pup family members, and giving me location perimeters: outdoors. And little J loved it. The nature part, of course.He wanted to explore, pick up sticks, and run through the trees. So, we did. I hope these images will always remind you of being a little family of three and having a sweet and adventurous toddler, Shannon and Kevin!!
