All kids have favorite things, whether it be a soft lovey, a hand knit blanket or a beloved toy truck. I always ask clients to bring along any of these special items to their photo session because I love to incorporate personal elements into the images I create. It makes the resulting photos so much more memorable and unique. Someday you will miss the days your child carried around that tattered old stuffed animal!
For this extended family session I had an email exchange with the client and they suggested possibly bringing along their violin and ukeleles. I thought they might be kidding, but I was really hoping they weren’t! Lucky for me, their adorable kids are all budding musicians and they had so much fun rocking out in the Arboretum. We even gathered a small audience of people who were out for a walk and couldn’t help but stop to watch. It was pretty much the thing my photography dreams are made of.
I love how the adults got involved, too!
It was impossible for me to pick and choose just a few favorites to share from these two beautiful families…sorry, it’s image overload!
Not only are these kids cousins, but they are lucky enough to live right next door to each other in a two family home! How amazing ( an unusual these days) to live so close to your extended family. What wonderful memories these guys will have of growing up together.
This family was full of laughter and love. And, it didn’t hurt that we had amazing weather and light.
Thank you so much for having me photograph your family! I had a blast. And thank you especially for bringing all the musical instruments!!
