This super fun family wanted to do their first ever family photo shoot right before their oldest child was about to leave to college. Yes, they had never done a family shoot in all those years. They really wanted the beach and we had such a gorgeous night. And the super moon was rising too! Not only is this family so fun, but they are all tall (I felt shorter than normal) and they are all gorgeous. It turns out that mom & dad graduated high school with my sister and they still live in our town. I love when I get to work with families from my town, because I get to see them around. Photography has been such a gift in bringing people into my life. I feel so fortunate.
Mom Deb also coordinated everyone’s outfits so perfectly. I am always so impressed with my clients. Of course, I offer help and even pick out outfits sometimes, but sometimes they show up to the shoot and they look perfect. This was definitely one of those times.
I love these playful images and I was so beyond thrilled that the family loves them too and will display some of them in their living room: I don’t think I stopped smiling this whole session: The best reaction at their presentation was to this picture because no one even knew it happened except for me and Finn: Duncan left for college only a few days after our session: Love this moment and it brought tears to my eyes when I was editing it. I only hope I will pictures like this of me and my girls like this one day: I totally forgot the super moon was rising that night but we made sure to get a few shots with it: Again, I LOVE that the family loved this picture and wants to display in their home as well: Lindsay is 14. Yes, 14! And SO sweet: Can we just stop and talk about how hot mom, Deb is?? I mean, come on!:
