The Worsham Family

I’m fortunate to call this family my friends first, then clients!  These are my favorite photos so far of them!  We met last summer at the Franklin Park Conservatory for their annual family photos.  I usually use my 35mm portrait lens for all photo sessions unless it’s a large group, but I changed things up this time.  I used my 70-300mm for the family photos of them between the trees, and I love how they came out!  I was able to give them a lot of space by using that lens, and I think that was the key for the kiddos.  Having someone right in your face with a big camera can be very uncomfortable, so I plan on utilizing that 70-300mm lens more often with families in the future.

You should check out this blog I posted about this family last year right after I met with them for these photos http://sevensphoto.com/throwback-thursday-baby-dylan/  You’ll learn a lot more about this wonderful family and why these photos may always be the most cherished!

This photo says it all… it’s really hot out and we’re tired of pictures!!

The Lay Family

The winter months are always slow for me in the photography world, because I don’t have a studio.  I’ll mostly be working my Physical Therapy job and photographing newborns only until Spring arrives.  The plus side is that maybe I can get my blog caught up!

Meet the Lay family.  I photographed them for the first time when their son was 18 months old.  Now, they have a little girl, so we meet again to capture family photos at her 18 month milestone.

We met at the Franklin Park Conservatory for the photo session.  Prior to the session, mom had told me that her little girl loved shoes.  I was so excited about this!  I have a purple high heel shoe chair that I knew would be perfect for this session!  We did all of the family photos first, then ended with the shoe chair.  I also brought a couple pairs of my shoes for her to play with.  We didn’t get very many smiles with the shoes, because she was so focused on trying them on.  Father’s Day was right around the corner when we met for photos, so I took a special sign for a father-daughter photo.  It turned out super cute!

I love how the photos show each child’s individual personality.  Their son is a jokester, which you can really see in his spiderman photos!  While their daughter is more on the serious side.  I always really like serious photos of children, so I love all of her photos.

Throwback Thursday {Baby Dylan}

I just photographed this family last week, and they are my favorite photos so far!  “Baby Dylan” is now two and his big brother, Cohen, will be turning five soon.  I’ve known their parents for 11 years now.  Brandy and I worked together for a very long time.  The past couple of years, I unfortunately don’t see them that often since we no longer work together.

Almost a year ago, Brandy was involved in a very serious car accident.  Both boys were in the car too.  Fortunately, the boys only had very minor injuries.  Brandy, on the other hand, had several fractures.  We all know the saying, you don’t know what you have until it’s gone. Well, the only thing they lost that day was their car, but the fact that they could have lost much much more is a scary thought.  I’ll never forget the look on Nathan’s face when I visited them at the hospital.  He was crouched onto the ground in the hallway with his head in his hands.  When he finally looked at me I knew he was thinking about how close he came to loosing his entire family.

Brandy had a long recovery.  Being a mother of two while wearing a back brace and loosing the use of your left hand was definitely not easy.  She made it though!  When we were together last week she showed me that she has lost some motion in her left wrist, but other than that is doing great considering.

We may not see each other everyday like we use to, or even once a month, but I will always love this family dearly.  With the anniversary of the accident approaching, I’m so honored to be capturing priceless memories for them and reminding everyone how priceless our time here together really is.

Let’s end on a happy note with the first photos of baby Dylan.  This was my first outdoor newborn session.  Dylan did awesome the entire time.  I honestly don’t remember him crying at all!  They have the two cutest little guys!
