Earlier this month I met this amazing family. I got an email prior to the session informing me that their daughter, Emily, was a tad bit shy - so we may have to work hard to get smiles.
Hey, I'm no stranger to hard work - heck, I've got a two year old... but I also love my long lens for situations like this.
Being able to stand back, out of her personal space allowed for her to play, and enjoy herself - which resulted in beautiful images, and such a happy smile!
And let us not forget that chunky cute little face, that little brother Matthew has... and his big, bright blue eyes!
I love this session for so many reasons, but what I love the most is the simplicity of it. Folks, you don't need a gorgeous location to the untrained eye for beautiful family portraits. Your family will make any location glow, just like this family did! This is a small field in Annapolis, with nothing more than some trees, and a school at the other end!
