This is the time of year you can really see how far behind I am on blogging.
The beautiful golden color is gone from the trees and I miss it so much! The time frames of the seasons sometimes seem so unfair. We have winter...dead-ness...for, like ever. Then Spring comes with all it's beautiful blooms and those fade FAST, then Summer flies by in a few brief months, then Fall....fall is like the biggest tease of them all. All those magnificent colors for 2 weeks out of 52?!!? Gah. Oh well, I guess it's a good way to go out with a bang before the death of winter comes. Sorry...that was a smidge dramatic.
Back to the Bedards...This family is a fave. They are like the brilliance of fall all year around. I have so loved working with them since they moved to the area. Their kids are beautiful, they are beautiful, their extended family is beautiful. How can a photographer miss? They make me look good. For that, I'm grateful.
Every year for Christmas, the Bracken's and I attempt to punch creativity in the face with a huge, over the top, crazy as we can get photoshoot. This year, we scaled back. A new baby changes life and priorities reshift. As simple and easy as this shoot was to get set up, it still ranks as one of my top faves. Memorable? Absolutely...for them. Grateful for gift of this family. They are simply irresistible.
At the beach with my favorite Reedy's on the planet.
This family is truly spectacular. Watching them interact and grow closer and closer through the years is everything inspiring. Love them and feel so blessed and grateful to get to document their life.
The Stones are a tremendous family to say the very least. I can't get tired of growing up with our clients. What a gift to have had the opportunity to document their family life for the past 6 years!
This is the first time I've met their extended family. They were lovely to be around. It was hot, they all had somewhere else to be, schedules were crazy, but they pulled it off and pulled it together. Organized chaos is fuel for my soul.
I love the richness of seeing multiple generations together. Almost as much as documenting them, I so enjoy watching their interaction. There's nothing else quite like it.
