I was absolutely thrilled when asked for family photos by these adorable guys! I have known Sarah for a long time through us both being Child Passenger Safety Technicians and volunteering for my town’s local car seat clinics. We also share a love of flying, although Sarah sadly didn’t complete her private pilot’s license. We do love chatting about flying though and of course, car seats – yeah, we’re kind of geeky that way!
We had originally planned on my taking their portraits prior to the boys’ shared birthday party. They both just turned 1 and 5. Sadly the weather did not co-operate with us that day so we rescheduled and changed the location to Benson’s Park in Hudson. This park is so versatile with lots of back-drop options and fun little nooks and crannies.
The family loved this shot and have chosen to feature it on a large metal print for their family room. I can’t wait to see this hung!
The boys were just adorable and William is Mr. Personality! What stories he could tell me! We shared lots of secrets during our shoot, he told me poems and adventure stories. Great things are in store for this little guy!
I love this shot because this is William. Everything about this shot is him! Perhaps there even is a modeling career in his future!
As you can see, it was a beautifully sunny morning when we met. Spring was truly giving us a hint that at last it was coming to visit. How gorgeous is baby Joseph? I managed to steal some baby snuggles from him and he curled right into me. Ahhh – so sweet!
William is full of energy too! He had a great time running around the trees and playing peek-a-boo!
When we took these shots, Joseph was right on the cusp of walking himself. In the short time between our shoot and presenting their images he is now off and walking! I just love this intense look he is giving me here in the shot above. That’s a mind that full of things just bursting to come out!
I love shots that really capture the moment and personality. For me, family portraits should be a fun time for everyone. We’ll get the compositions you are looking for, but when you just let things flow and happen, as you can see, you can also capture magic. This is Sarah’s family frozen at this moment. Not just how they look, but who they are. That is the gift I wish to give my clients in their family portraits.
