This family came to me wanting photos of the two young boys and also the family pet dog, Newman. Ryder and Brady are busy, active kids and used to running around and refusing to sit still, but for our session they rewarded their mom’s efforts at wardrobe organization by giving me some beautiful, natural looks.
The black and white image was recently ordered as a 30×30 canvas to go over the family’s mantel in their two-story living room. It’s an amazing piece that the boys’ parents will treasure forever (and probably look to in moments of yelling and shouting in years to come, to recall the serene moment we captured).
Are you thinking about family portraits? I’m happy to accommodate requests for pets – I’ve done sessions with dogs and horses so far. And no temperature is too cold as long as my clients are comfortable – there is no rule that family portraits must be done outside between June and October. In a few weeks I’m photographing a family of five outdoors, and it will be fun to include a Minnesota feel to the portraits with the weather. I am now taking reservations for all photo sessions through May of 2013, so contact me today to get on the calendar!
