one of my all time favorite things about shooting seniors is that i usually get to see them again shortly after their session.  so many of my seniors book family sessions with me!  it’s so great to reconnect and meet their family members.  in this case, i already knew everyone from marin’s session four years back.  i was so excited to see her!  we did a family session after her senior shoot as well.  this year, sydney is graduating so we scheduled their session around the college girls coming home for thanksgiving.  while it was a bit chilly, it was a blast!  the more i work with people, the more comfortable we all are.  it was just like picking up where we left off!  i can’t say enough good things about this family.  it was definitely a great last session for 2014!

 

i was super excited to photograph this family.  they recently moved here from michigan so our wimpy “cold” temps didn’t intimidate them.  i’m all about winter sessions.  what’s better than cozy clothes and warm hugs?  i think their smiles say it all!  i’m scheduling VERY limited winter sessions right now.  if you’d like images like these, let me know!  i’m available at marla@bigshotsbymarla.com for more information.

some things are just meant to be and this session was one of them.  cindy had JUST purchased a silent auction session at the aviator flight fest.  when she called, fall was already in full swing and my calendar was 99.9% full.  with a little juggling of our schedules, we made this session happen and even squeezed in the ever so important pre-session consultation to plan all of the details.

the goal was to capture the family being themselves with a bit of posed candids to help them along.  the weather was perfect, leaves were still on the trees and everyone really did have a great time.
