There’s a neat place near my home that I drive past quite a lot (i.e. every time I go to the grocery store!)  I always love looking at it and have often envied the photographers with connections to the family that own it.  A couple weeks ago, I got to be one of the lucky photographers!  I was so excited when my friends asked me to take their family portraits there.  It is an amazing home with a barn and a gorgeous yard.  There were so many possibilities!  Here are a few of the results…

This shoot was a little nerve-wracking for me before it started.  k and c were coming at 2.  At noon a huge thunderstorm rolled through.  The sky was dark outside and it was really windy.  I knew I wouldn’t have enough light if it kept up and I really wanted to avoid using flash.  So I spent an hour brainstorming, setting up, trying things out and preparing for a dark rainy afternoon with no sunshine to work with.  At 1:45 the sky cleared and the day turned out to be perfect.  Whew.  I have to give the credit to my older daughter…she was praying for the storm to pass by before the photoshoot (I’m sure it also had something to do with her dislike of thunderstorms).

This was a newborn + sibling session for c (the newborn…okay he was 2 months old) and his sister k.  c wasn’t too happy about having his photo taken to begin with, but as he got used to the situation he relaxed a bit and I was able to capture some more expressive shots.  k is just a lot of fun…she seems very mellow, but she has a definite twinkle in her eye!  So fun!
