We have plenty of beautiful outdoor spots to take photos near where we live, but there’s just something special about capturing a family in their own habitat. A few weeks ago I shot a session with a former family who’d added a new baby girl to their mix. Big brothers were clearly over the freaking MOON about meeting Julia – or “ju-ye-a” as they pronounced it – and we got some absolutely adorable sibling shots out on their own lawn. Kids are going to be distracted no matter where you are, so you might as well capitalize on the notion that they already know their own yard pretty well and might actually sit still for photos ; ) ESPECIALLY if bribed with dessert! Thanks for letting me hang out for a backyard summer mini-session N family!
PS. I so rarely update my photography site (since it’s truly just a ((profitable)) hobby at this point) but if you wanna catch a few more recent sessions, you can check out my Valley Facebook page too! And if you’re local – call me for a session this summer!
