I worked with Rachael for a while to get a date that worked well with both my schedule as well as her family’s schedules and I’m so glad the timing worked out like it did because it was a gorgeous Fall day that was perfect weather for being outside for a Family Shoot especially with kiddos!
Ryan and Rachael’s youngest, Laine, just turned one shortly after our photoshoot! Isn’t she a complete doll?! Look at those big blue eyes and those sweet round cheeks! Rachael perfectly coordinated her family’s outfits and Miss Laine looked like she was right out of a catalog. All I could think was “Rachael, you can come style all my client’s outfits because they’d come out perfect every time!”
Mr. Jack is familiar with me behind my camera and he is such a sweet kid especially during one on one time. He’s rambunctious and playful just like any 4 year old, but he also had plenty of curious questions to ask me and happily obliged my requests. Plus, he makes a pretty adorable cowboy, don’t you think?!
Ryan’s sister and husband were so sweet and embraced the session with all the commotion of getting the kiddos to cooperate and coordinating every one. In bigger sessions, some of my favorites wind up being those sweet shots when I get couples and families during one on one time. Their personalities shine through and they relax more which gives such a sweet loving feel to their photos.
Ryan’s Mom and Dad live on some pretty awesome farm/acreage and Ryan’s Grandma lives about a mile down the road. Both of their houses and land have a very small town/big farm feel to them which I love. They’re not far from “civilization”, yet it’s peaceful and serene along their stretches of road out in the country.
Ryan’s Grandma lives in a house and on a farm that has been owned and operated by the same family for over 100 years!! Isn’t that amazing?! They still have cows, a fantastic merry go round with rich history and open fields to run and play. It’s like a childhood dream out there!
Arens family, thank you so much for having me out to your property and spending the afternoon with me! You have such a sweet growing family!
