I don’t mind eating my Wheaties and working hard during a family session to engage with everyone and win the kids over, but sometimes a family session can be easy peasy. Photographing these friends every year is pure pleasure for me. They are so laid back and Elijah is such a happy little dude that it’s pretty effortless. Ashley and James engage with their little guy so well that it’s fun to capture their interactions. Elijah is turning four in a couple weeks. He brought along his friend, Thomas the bear, and some of the things Thomas said to me had him giggling with such a great smile and bright eyes. Love. Love, love, love.
We had a lovely mild day with misty fog. I love the light that it created and the way that the branches looked in these images. Winter in the northwest can be a great time for photos.
