Last year I really fell behind on my blogging! So, I’ve decided to use “throwback Thursday” to catch up and share some of the awesome sessions I had last year! Meet the Adams Family…
This is my sis-in-laws fam. When I first started this photography journey, they were the first family Shannon and I photographed together. We went to Kingwood Center in Mansfield, and had a very eventful session due to the weather. It rained on and off the entire time! Since we don’t live in Mansfield, we decided to face the weather anyway. Thankfully, Kingwood had buildings for us to take shelter in, and we were able to get some great photos while inside too. Below, you can see photos from that session, which I believe was almost five years ago. While, I’ve grown so much since then, I still love these photos!
This past fall, we met again for the first time since those photos were taken. I can’t believe it took us so long to update their family photos! Once again, the weather wasn’t cooperating, but we were able to complete the entire session without getting rained on this time. This beautiful family would photograph well anywhere, but we were particularly lucky to have such amazing fall colors. They also nailed it with their outfits! I always encourage my clients to utilize layers, because it adds character to the photos.
I am in love with how the photos turned out! My favorite thing about the camera is that it doesn’t lie. If I’m working with clients that truly aren’t connected to each other, you can tell. No matter how great the pose and/or location is, you just can’t fake love. I see so much love in each of these photos! My nephew was genuinely engaged during the entire session and having a great time! My niece wasn’t even feeling well that day, but you would never know it! I even made my sis-in-law tear up during a father-daughter pose.
This past Christmas, one of the photos from this session was enlarged and given to my mother-in-law as a gift. The waterworks happened again! She had everyone in the room crying! So much emotion from looking at one photo. That’s why I love this job!
