I’m not sure I’ve ever posted practically an entire session in a preview before. However, I was under the gun to get these done for Christmas cards, so I skipped the usual preview and got these straight to Momma. I’ve had to do that lots of times before when there’s a quick turnaround deadline, but I don’t think I’ve ever gone back and posted those pics. However, these are so candid and fun and back to my preferred style of shooting (over the years, I have gotten so far away from the original candid style I had; I really want to get back to it, but so few clients choose the candids to hang up in their homes…) that I had to share.
Yes, those are feathers everywhere. We had quite a blast throwing feathers and jumping and playing and making a big ol’ mess.
After I thoroughly trashed their entryway–I obviously got the heck out of there–and Momma and I took the kiddos outside to try to get some pictures of the boys together and give them a little running room. The light was FANTASTIC.
I must make a comment about this first one. This is the type of picture that Momma (and orderer of pictures) probably wouldn’t buy and put up on the wall. However, it is the kind of picture that (I imagine) her boys would like to look at when they are older. I mean, how many moms look like this? Fun, young, happy, and beautiful? Gorgeous.
Once I asked them to wrestle each other, I was able to get plenty of them together. Go figure.And, oh, what luck! It started snowing for us. :)
Ah, sweet family! Thanks so much for a fun shoot, as always. Is it okay to go ahead and plan a Colorado Thanksgiving session for next year? Huh, huh? :) Happy New Year, and happy everything to come for you.
P.S. Friends, family, and fans, in 2016 I’m going to focus my efforts on combining travel and photography. As of right now, I’ve got shoots scheduled in Galveston, San Antonio, two spots in Florida, Chicago, and Seattle. Need a little photographer for your family vacation? Give me a shout.
