For those who know me, they can tell you that I am a very family oriented person. I come from a large family and they mean the absolute world to me. So when I am asked to photograph a full family session; it's such an honor because I know how precious these images are. It's one of those sessions that doesn't come along but every few years (if not more), and the images are treasured and reminisced about forever. Every session that I have the opportunity to photograph for my client is special, but especially family sessions.
This was the case for The Stilley, Lansdown, and Miller Families. It had been several years since they had family portraits taken, and this was a special gift for Whitney and Daniel's Mom, Linda. These families will always hold a very special place in my heart. I've known Whitney and her husband, Jimmy, for almost fifteen years. It's crazy to think that it's been that long. They had just graduated high school and were starting their freshman year of college when we first met. Fast-forward a few years, and Whitney and Jimmy are married and have the most precious little girl, Sadie. I've had the privilege of doing their Maternity Session and Sadie's Newborn Session. I was so excited to not only photograph them again, but also the rest of Whitney's family. They are such wonderful people and I knew it was going to be a very fun evening.
We decided that Whitney and Jimmy's home was the perfect location for their family session. They have the most gorgeous house that backs up to the river. There aren't enough adjectives in the English language to describe how pretty their property is. From the moment you turn into their driveway, you feel like you are in a magazine. Such a beautiful place! Granted it was a wee bit warm on the evening of their session, however we were having too much fun to notice. No one ever complained though, not even little Sadie. They were all smiles the entire time. I loved how many combinations of images I was able to get that evening. I love each and every image and I feel like it really shows the dynamic of their amazing family. They were so fun and easy to work with. Moving around their property, photographing them as they laughed and joked around with each other. It was such a effortless and flawless session. It made me love them even more!
So without further ado, I give you just a few of my favorite images from The Stilley, Lansdown, and Miller Families Summer Session. Enjoy and Happy Tuesday!
