As a photographer, I count myself lucky to have a sister who loves photographs as much as I do! Couple that with her husband who loves having his photo taken and their absolutely adorable baby boy and well yup, I'm pretty much living every photographer's dream when I do a family session with them!! Early in December, we planned our session for golden hour in a beautiful, historic spot, a perfect backdrop to capture this period in their lives and for their first Christmas card as a family of three. When they climbed out of their truck, I was so excited to see how my sister had styled her family for this shoot. They had such an awesome look for the location- the perfect blend of colors to add a hint of Christmas but still give them a classic and timeless look. The signs she brought along added a touch of vintage along with their style. And though I'd been told my nephew was easy going, little did I expect he'd be so happy! He's so easy to photograph!! Of course, with all family sessions, that time in front of my camera is time spent together, laughing and enjoying each other in a beautiful setting. I can see in all three of their faces how much they adore each other and the simple experience of being together. It was beautiful and you'd better believe I'm already looking towards our next session and time together!!!
