This field (while filled with allergy laden mustard seed) is just breathtaking. That said, this gorgeous family IN the field? Hello. Aren't they beautiful?
At the shoot he shows me a picture that was just published in a magazine of their wedding image. They had a carnival theme and they were lounging on a sofa being held up by an elephant......AFTER he showed me that, he made a comment in passing about letting me do my thing creatively. Okay. No fair. A mini session in a field with only a little Ikea chair won't scratch the surface when we're competing with an elephant. haha! I still think the pictures are super, super sweet. There are no props or large animals great enough to replace a real connection between a family welcoming a new addition. Welcome to this crazy world and your crazy awesome new family, baby Aislinn.
Hey, it's part of life. Babies just aren't happy all the time. Now, from a mommy's perspective, potentially....I would imagine....I would be a little freaked out if it were finally family picture day and my baby were upset....just as a hypothetical scenario.
HOWEVER, because my passion is photographing fleeting moments in life and relationships, fussy babies totally fit the bill. See, it's not about the baby crying, it's about what the family does to console him. It's precious and makes me melt in a little puddle.
It's our pleasure to introduce you to the newest member of the Bracken Family....Creed.
He is the most precious little punkin and quite a beautiful addition to this (not only) gorgeous (but also) crazy amazing family. You'll be seeing more of him around, so stay tuned!
The theme for this session was : Growing in size, knowledge and numbers....Welcome Creed!
Something about this family makes me comfortable. Sounds weird, I know, but their attitude, demeanor and look are sooooo American and comfortable and classic and simple and beautiful and lovely and apple pie-y. :)
