The Whole Family {family photography}

30 October 2009
I know! It has been FOREVER since I have put up a post.  I have been slammed with shoots since the leaves began to change and my blogging got lost some where along the way.  My bad.  But, I have this super huge, amazing post to make up for it!  This session was a long time in the making.  Luckily, after much scheduling and rescheduling do to uncooperative weather, we were final able to make it happen on this gorgeous fall day.

Yep, there's my good friend Jessica with the rest of her gorgeous family.

I love sister shots! It makes me miss my own sister.  Love you Sam!

Candace & Zach {anytime photography}

I know I say this a lot but seriously I think this is one of my favorite photo sessions ever! I can't even tell you how excited I was when Candace called and asked if I would take some photos of her and her honey. First, Candace has been one of my best friends since like the 4th grade and I absolutely love her so I knew it would be a good time at the shoot. Then, there is the fact that she is such a natural beauty, for real she looks this gorgeous all the time without even trying. Finally, the images that we were able to take far exceeded even my expectations. These two were so natural at showing the obvious affection they have for each other and, as you can see, they look absolutely amazing together. Thanks again for letting me pull you all over the city; I think it was worth it!

Here's Candace trying to be graceful. I think she actually pulled it off.

These two really were up for anything that I asked them to do. Like... maybe climbing into a cage thing on the side of a wall. It ended up being a tighter squeeze than I had originally anticipated but, they were able to work it out while I apologized through hysterical laughter on the side. Believe me, the climbing in and out of this thing was really funny to watch

I am competely in LOVE with the image of the left.

It was hard to choose but, I think this next photo is my favorite from the whole shoot. Just stunning.

I had so much fun at this photo session. Brooke and Kevin's three little girls did such an amazing job showing their fun personalities. Especially after some help by Kevin, which included many blown kisses, tickling, and good old candy brides, the girls gave me some awesome faces. In addition to gorgeous smiles, this family had such a great look. For real, if you question what to wear to a photo session here is an amazing example of mixing up some fun patterns and colors that pop while still keeping everyone coordinated. I especially love the red fingernails detail that tied all the girls together, so cute. Thanks again for letting me photograph your sweet family!

Who doesn't love baby feet?

I am in love with the following series. Again a special thanks needs to go out to Kevin for these two photos; the expressions these girls had while playing with their dad just make me smile.
