Love my repeat clients – seeing how they have grown and changed…and how their little personalities have developed…catching up on their interests…and reconnecting through the camera fulfills me to a great extent.
The Wood family are down to earth, beautiful, creative, and inspiring people. I know it is cliche to talk about seeing the love but it is true with them. Nothing is forced…it is genuine. And how about mom coordinating them sooo well! Props and should have titled this “what to wear for a family photograph”.
Now, since this post is extremely long, I will post a little behind the scenes info about it…so follow along or just look at the pictures – it is up to you.
We started out at the “boardwalk” to let the kids explore, run and capture the family images. I love it there because there is always something to appeal to each age and gender such as throwing rocks, running down the lane, spotting bugs or flowers, etc. After warming up and getting the “must-have” shots, we headed for a field with a detour to my new “blue door” (but those images are going to be a surprise).
But on the way to the field, I remember my dad telling me about a “wall of roses” off on one of the many side roads. I had checked it out a day before and when I saw L’s Matilda Jane outfit, I knew that was the spot for that shoot.
At the field, I was a bit disappointed that all the rain has delayed the coneflowers, but there were still some wild ones scattered around. Little man A was promised a picture with his best friend and L walked through the grass to pick the lonely flowers.
Changing up locations is key when shooting toddlers since they can bore so easily. I’m lucky enough to have all my locations within minutes of my studio. Thanks C and T for a wonderful and easy session. xoxo
