I have had session in the past that goes fairly quickly (like for my kids who give me all of ten seconds) but I must say that this family was organized and ready and had their act together. The only challenge was trying to convince their handsome little boy that he should stay in the family pictures. Melissa is also a photographer and so maybe I can blame her professionalism on experience BUT don’t ask her what happened when she turned to take pictures of us! Ok, I will tell you… : ) 1/2 of my family left-there are only four of us so that left two. Perfect family photo, right. The two that left claimed to need a restroom immediately and the two that stayed did not behave one bit! Let’s just say we gave her a true test and she may change how she feels (actually, I’m sure she already did) about taking pictures of our family-or should I say half of our family. It’s not funny. I’m not laughing. : ) This is probably the most pictures I have put on one post for a while. It was a sunny say here in Kirkland and the skies cleared as I was driving up to meet them. That was lovely!
Here she is, Melissa and her family-cute and organized and ready for pictures!
I have often thought about bringing bubbles to a photo session but have yet to follow through on my idea. I was pleasantly surprised to see bubbles emerge from their bags on this day! …it was such a treat for the little kids but I was mostly surprised at how intrigued their dog seemed to be. Have you ever tried to get a dog to be involved in a family portrait? I’m thinking bubbles just may be the trick!
Another attempt at a movie clip of a summer vacation… Playing on the beach for a week was so much fun (minus the sting ray in the foot when I finally was brave enough to go boogie boarding)!
I just love when families don’t take things too seriously. This family was too much fun and its rare for parents to say, “No, I don’t care if they get dirty (or wet, or wrinkled, etc),” and this family was out for the adventure… can you tell?
Sometimes you just need a better view, a different point of view. A little help never hurts.
