Each year I add a few more amazing locations to my “rolodex” of spots, and one of my newer favorites is this spot for family portraits in a grassy field filled with oak trees. It’s beautiful all year round, even in the middle of summer when the grass is dry – I think I may even like it best when the grass is dry because of the beautiful golden light that gets splashed all around.
This adorable family first came to me for their maternity pictures and I got to learn all about how they met and their plans for the future. After another session for their new baby boy, I feel so lucky to see them again for their six-month session before they whisked themselves off to their new home near the coast a few days after this shoot.
It can be fun documenting the interactions between siblings – these two just adore each other!
Mom did an amazing job on the outfits, perfectly mixing patterns, textures and colors. Her floral dress crossed with sister’s polka dot leggings and brother’s little tweed suit – love it!
Both mom and dad work for VW, so we had to include some beetles in the pictures (check out the blanket he’s lying on). And that face with those rosy cheeks — oh my goodness!
She started off a little shy, but turned into little miss model after she saw how much fun we were having.
Such a fun family! I can’t wait to see them again for their one-year shoot!
