This family’s portrait session, in Augusta, MO, was so much fun. The apple orchard made for a perfect backdrop for this family of six. Not only did the kiddos get to pick apples, but they found a frog to play with as well. Since their mommy is a photographer, I brought along some of my vintage cameras for everyone to play with. Super sweet. I wish I had film in those cameras, as I would love to see what they would have captured. So happy that I was able to get so many images of everyone smiling and looking at the camera. Not always the easiest thing to do with six people, but I have a few tricks up my sleeve for such a task. I love the interaction between everyone in this family. You can really tell that they enjoy their time together and truly love each other. Don’t you just love the outfits they chose for their session?Perfect for an early Fall photography session! Enjoy the music video!
Lucien was a mere six days old when I had the honor to capture him for his newborn portrait session. He was pretty laid back, which is great for mom and dad who are adjusting nicely to their new role as parents. They are blessed to have each other. Thank you H family for trusting me to capture these special moments in your lives. Enjoy the music video!
A few months back, fellow photographer, Kristi Hollowell, contacted me about photographing her family. She said that she is used to urban settings for her family’s portraits, but she was up for something different this time around. Since it is September and nearing towards the end of apple season, I thought an apple orchard fit the bill for their customized portrait session. Since Kristi’s family consists of four kiddos, we wanted to stick a bit close to their home so that everyone was in the best of moods when they arrived. Centennial Farms was the perfect location! There were still some apples on the trees and the orchards are beautifully groomed by it’s owners. If you haven’t been to Centennial Farms, you should check them out. You can pick your own apples, buy some honey & preserves that are produced right there on the premises, pick out the perfect pumpkin for the upcoming holidays and enjoy a nice scenic ride out to the farm. They have other fall festivities coming up soon that would be great for the whole family. In the meantime, enjoy’s Kristi’s sneak peek!
