I had such a pleasure working with this sweet little family for their fall session/daughter's first birthday pictures. Their daughter was such a sweet, smiley, adorable little girl who loved hamming it up for the camera! I know this is the time of year especially where photographers run themed mini sessions (and I'm contemplating the idea of doing one next year perhaps), however, a large part of why I did NOT want to do mini sessions this fall was because I wanted to actually spend time with my families this year, and get to know them more personally. Since this is usually the one time of year most families wait to put the effort to coordinate clothing, do their hair and makeup and get out there in front of the camera (regardless of how much they love or hate it), I wanted to be able to take my time and craft beautiful, timeless portraits for them. Part of doing that involves getting to spend an hour with each family, chat, and having time to pay attention to all the little details. I hope each family I've worked with this season has felt special in that way! Additionally, we could not have asked for better weather, as the first cold front of the season rolled in that weekend as well! It was a fantastic session all around.
