I highly recommend annual photo sessions WITH your kids. It’s so fun to see how they grow from year to year.
As I tell all my client, friends, family (anyone who will listen, really) – investing in quality family portraits is one of the best choices you can make this year.
Long after the spontaneous Target or Costco shopping spree is spent (been there, done that), or the stylish purse, the on-trend shoes, the expertly applied streaky hair highlights (or purple hair tips) are gone, long after the fancy meals are eaten, the fine wine is drunk and forgotten, long after the pretty new couch looks worn and old – these images are what will last forever and bring you joy several generations.
Natascha is a great photographer to work with! I have been fortunate enough to partner with her for product shots for my business, as well as family photos. She is wonderful with children and can get my usually challenging toddler to smile and engage with her! Thank you Natascha for all of your hard work and wonderful photographs!
By the way, Amy is a fabulous crochet artist with wonderful items for sale on Etsy. I am lucky enough to have an extensive selection of her her lovely props and use at least one of them in each of my my newborn sessions.
Below is one of my favorite images from their Fabulous Fall Portrait Session held in Westminster, Colorado – just look at the sunlight filtering through the changing Aspen and Cottonwood leaves..
I esp. love the look on their little boy as he gazes down at Mommy and Daddy kissing!
The summer one below was a concept session rather than a regular portrait session. Concept sessions are far more complex since they involve props, storyline, etc…., but they are also also tons and tons of fun.
This particular one was done over two successive evenings, and it even involved two assistants!
I think the results are spectacular, and it was even featured on InspireMeBaby.
The idea was to tell a story; Boy rides up on his “wheels” (tricycle), shares some stories, laughs and watermelon with girl, and then they ride off together. I actually shot this twice, the first time is below and the second time was for July 4th and those images will be posted next week.
