I’ve had the pleasure of photographing this wonderful family before, but that was last autumn on a gorgeous fall day with lots of sunshine to spare. When we met again this year, things were a little different. The family is still beautiful with my favorite kind of personalities to work with–flexible, fun, ready for anything, spontaneous. But the one thing we couldn’t ignore was the weather–it was windy and cold!
Ah, well. Look on the bright side. Weather like this is the perfect excuse for these awesome siblings to bundle up under blankets and snuggle. Makes for great photos!
Nothing keeps this family down; we had a great time by the river and there was even an impromptu tug-of-war! But when even the most fun-loving kids won’t come out from under their wraps, as a photographer you know it’s time to move on.
On the other side of the river we found some awesome, sheltered spots that made for the perfect, more urban backgrounds to our family photo shoot. All it took was some brick, a new box of chalk, and some railroad tracks, and these kids were back on track.
Not to mention, we took the Christmas card photo of my dreams!
Even in the chilliest weather, this family was so much fun (and not to mention gorgeous)! Being flexible and fun-loving (and did I mention the dance party?) helps bring out the best in any family photo shoot, no matter where you end up!
Thanks for a great day, F Family!
