On Sunday, I met up with an old friend of mine to take a few family portraits. Pam (the mother) and I went to Peace College together. It just so happens, we’re from the same small town…therefore, we both speak Nash County. Pam’s boys are absolutely adorable. Judah just turned three and Mack is six months old. I photographed Mack just before I gave birth to Felicity – he was six weeks old at the time. Oh how he’s grown!
I got to give it to Pam – her location choices were fantastic. We started at the train tracks. Apparently they are still in use but it’s a rare day to see a train pull through. Safety first – don’t go jumping on train tracks for photos without keeping an eye out. That aside, I was sure to get a smile out of Judah when he was between Mom and Dad.
Our next location was a friend’s farm. I’ve been told that this friend didn’t think his yard was worthy of photographs. Oh how wrong he was…I could photograph at this location all the time.
He described this one area we used as the “enchanted forest” I think. There’s a chance I just made that up. Either way, the lighting was quite magical.
These next few pictures don’t really show off the barn in their yard, but it made for a beautiful backdrop. That aside, anytime you can get this kind of smile out of a three year old without begging, it’s worth celebrating.
I know I’m biased because they are my photos, but I had so many favorites in this collection. Pam makes beautiful babies. Well done girl.
I mean, look at this – priceless! I swear I didn’t ask Judah to turn his head. Clearly, this location is full of magic.
Speaking of magic, these two are still rocking it. We managed to work in a mini-couple’s session and they totally killed the camera…in a good way. I’m pretty sure they practiced in the mirror.
Finally, one of my favorite photos of the session. Interestingly enough, it was the last photo of the session. Right after this shot, we decided to call it a day. Way to end the day on a high note. I love it. Beautiful families such as these make my job easy!
