I was so excited when Patty contacted me to do family photos. Perfect time to capture them all together as JP is leaving for Virginia to start is new life chapter. Wishing him all good things ahead. We laughed because the last time family photos were done Lindsey was 2. The funny part was my last family photos I had 2 kids, but guess what ... we have 4! It's easy to put off doing them, but they are memories that are so important to capture!
We had to reschedule their session once as we were rained out, and today started a little iffy for us (I thought Patty and I jinxed the day by talking about how nice the weather was) However, we couldn't have asked for a better evening. We got a little of everything, overcast, sunshine and yes the golden hour! These two were great to work with, cute personalities. I love capturing siblings together, they grow up so fast. That bond is forever there.
So many beautiful spots to capture memories. I love getting parents with their kids. You never know how a shoot will go with older kids as they tend to just want out of there. I'm sure both of them did, but they hung in there, laughed and joked throughout.
I love the connection of this family. As I'm editing, I'm laughing just thinking about the story behind the capture. They kept a smile on my face start to end. I told them we can just be natural throughout the shoot... Patty thought they needed a little help with posing. I think they did just fine! It's always fun to hear the family chatting as I'm shooting. Yes, I know holding hands with your parents when you are grown... can be a bit odd (haha)
My favorite capture from the night. Just be natural laugh tell jokes, I said, and this is what you get. A beautiful moment, frozen for a lifetime. I say a family that laugh together, stay together. I love absolutely everything about this raw moment. Mom and dad can say this is us, our family. You both should be so proud and it shows through these times. Thank you again for allowing me to step into your life for a short moment and give you something to cherish. Wishing JP the best and Lindsey and awesome school year (Go Dreads!)
