I adore watching families grow from behind my lens. This family is one of our Baby Portrait Planners and mom has been planning this portrait session fro months. When she showed me the outfits, I knew this was going to be a special photo shoot. I am a bit behind on blogging sessions due to the volume of our workload, but this photo shoot took place in early Spring, just before Easter (notice the adorable bunny smocked dress). Baby was turning 6 months old and I always encourage family portraits during this milestone, as baby is able sit and we are able to utilize more props in the session with a sitting baby.
We were looking for beautiful blooms and nature for our backdrop, and we found just that! I scouted locations over 150 mile radius searching for blooms in early Spring, and when I found these delicate white flowers and this gorgeous weeping willow field, I knew we could make some magic in this location. Natural lighting is a little tricky at times, especially when seasons change, but with utilizing just the right angels I was able to create this dreamy sun haze look I was focusing on during the sunset hour. The result, creamy, dreamy pastel light that dances over the head so gently, painting sunshine onto every image. 🙂
This sweet family had an entire gallery of absolutely stunning images, which makes this portrait session a difficult one to blog … choosing just a few to highlight was definitely no easy chore. I wish I could share each and every one of them, but there are soooo many! So, I picked just a few favorites for now, and will share more soon …
