I love my repeat clients. I feel like I say it all the time but I truly love to see my brides and grooms turn into parents and having the opportunity to meet their new little babies is just magical. I photographed Emily and Ethan's wedding back in 2011 so it has been a few years since I've seen them all, including Emily's wonderful parents, Marjorie and Charles. I was so excited to meet Milo and Finn, they couldn't have been any cuter, sweeter or more curious. Ready to explore, we set out in my favorite little park, Hansell Park and captured some new memories for this sweet family. If you are considering which time of year is best for portraits, these were summer photos and i think they turned out just beautifully! If you can stand the heat, the summer has some exceptional light and greenery to offer.
Now that I have a 15 month old boy, I know this adorable, mischievous look all too well. In my house it is usually followed by something terribly naughty, like grabbing a spatula from the kitchen drawer and beelining it to the nearest house plant to dig up all of the potting soil I just re-added. In this case I think he just took off and ran if I remember correctly. Not so naughty.
Dirt! The boys loved this path and they were completely lost in the moment digging around and muddying themselves up a bit.
This was my favorite spot with the tree and the beautiful sunlight coming through. I love all of the images we got in this particular spot but this was just a sweet moment between a dad and his son.
I love this shot of Marjorie and Charles. Over the few times I had met them, their relationship struck me as being so quiet, nurturing and loving. They seemed to have a deep understanding of one another. It was beautiful to witness.
