It’s amazing what a difference a year makes!  This sweet girl has grown so much in the past year since I’ve seen her – it secretly made me giddy when she would take my hand and tell me in her little whisper voice how she was going to show me some “good places” to take photos.  Isn’t it great seeing things from a child’s point of view?  Fun, fun and more fun!

These sweet friends of mine just moved to the country, fulfilling a longtime dream they’ve had for their family.  When we discussed places to have their session, they insisted that their new property had the most beautiful sunsets.  After being there, I couldn’t agree more.  It was truly a session to remember, and not just because of the sunset!  We were joined by ALL the members of their family, including their dog and the family’s cockatoo.  How cool is that?

Our girls have long since passed the stage where they wanted to dress alike and do the same things.  They are individual people with their own tastes and  preferences.  So when we did our Halloween photos this year, we decided to do something entirely different for each girl.  Annalise wanted something pretty, but a little more dramatic (totally her personality), while Arden wanted something fun and cute (soooo her).   All in all, I think these turned out really well!

When we were brainstorming places to take this family’s photos, we talked about a number of locations.  We ended up settling on a LOVELY neighborhood downtown that they often enjoy taking long walks through.  Don’t we all have one of those?  Those neighborhoods you enjoy daydreaming about?  With a pretty park, historic homes and tree-lined streets I’m seriously jealous of, it really was a wonderful place in which to photograph them all!  But location only plays a part of each session – it’s not hard to see the most important part here.  🙂

Can I just say how much I’ve been looking forward to photographing this sweet family?  With four little ones, I had to be prepared for anything.  You can prepare as much as you want, but you can never predict how a session will go.  That’s why I love shooting in our local parks – plenty of room to do fun things like running and throwing leaves.  One of the reasons I don’t like to do shorter sessions is that most kids take a while to really warm up.  It is much nicer to just take your time and build a little trust with them.  And this way, if someone needs to take a break, it’s not a problem!

For this precious family, it really couldn’t have gone much better!  Sure, it was part excited energy, but mostly these kiddos were just SO SWEET!!  Just check out all these adorable faces!
