There are a few things that make me nervous when it comes to photo shoots. My number one concern is lighting and number two is unpredictable children. When I found out I would be shooting the D’s family photos at 10 a.m. with a 5 year old and a 2 year old I didn’t know what to expect. In an ideal world I would hold every session an hour or two before sunset when lighting conditions are perfect. I do my best to shoot as far away from noon as possible but I don’t always get so lucky.
The D family were vacationing from California and they rented a beautiful home in Englewood, CO. I was incredibly relieved when I arrived to find a large portion of the yard covered in solid shade. I felt even more relief when I met the two incredibly well behaved little ones.
I was told that this lovely two year old loved to follow rules and the family told her I was the teacher for the day. She was all smiles!
Aren’t their outfits great?! I love the perfect coordination of their well planned outfits and it’s nice that they aren’t too “matchy matchy”.
This little guy would flash the cheesiest grin at me any chance he got but I was lucky to catch him off guard on multiple occasions.
His sister just took her senior photos and was obviously well prepared for some solo shots.
Grandma and grandpa were amazingly spunky and kept up with the children throughout the session. I’m really in love with this photo of them! I even had a photographer friend tell me it looked like it belonged on the cover of a brochure. Hey… I’ll take that as a compliment.
This was such an amazing family to work with!
