This sweet family contacted me in the fall — they wanted family portraits in nature with their two month old daughter and sweetheart of a dog. “We love the outdoors so we’d lean towards something with trees vs water or a city background.” they said in one of our initial emails and I had the perfect spot for them, lots of lovely trees and very stroller- and dog-friendly. And it turns out it was a spot they loved from years ago, but hadn’t been to recently — I love when my clients have a connection to our location since it just makes the whole portrait session that much more special. It was SUPER cold, so their little one was super-bundled, but we managed to capture this family of three (plus canine!) for their holiday cards.
