in children

I adore this family. They bring it all to their session: fun ideas, personality, intimate moments, stories, silly games for making their daughter giggle… That, plus of the little details that mark this moment in time as different from the others. I’ve been working with them since their little girl was still in mommy’s belly and it’s been such a joy to get to document their growth as a family year after year.

We always try out a new location together and this November we went for a little hike up in the rolling hills of Fairfield. The sun was setting and the light was skipping off the trees and dry grass in the most delicious way.

We discovered a fun bridge along the way, perfect for running on!

They never fail to make each other laugh. I swear they are secretly models and just haven’t told me yet…

Taking a little break at the top on an obliging picnic table. Look how the sun washes down in little rays from the right. It’s a small little detail but one of my favorites.

Cuddling in the tall grass… Can you believe how cute their Pomeranian is? His name is Armani and he easily wins the prize for the easiest dog in the world to take pictures of. He listens well and always looks perfect when it’s his turn. Armani, can you tell all of the pups out there to be just like you???

They always get their Seattle Seahawks picture in – I love it!
