wow!  i was so excited when lindsey called me to schedule her family session!  it had been a few years and another child since i’ve photographed them!  you probably remember the big brother here, andrew, from his newborn,  six monthten month and one year sessions.  time flies and kids grow fast!  i got to meet little bro tyler and together they were ADORABLE!  i remember mom and dad being laid back when they became parents for the first time.  not much has changed.  it was very relaxed as we all ventured around town and then made our way down to the banks of the little miami.  i can’t even explain how much fun they had.  it was as much fun for me to capture them as it was for them to play.  what’s better than  a bunch of rocks, water and the coolest batman boots when you’re a little guy?  ummmmm…nothing!  here are some favorites from this session!

i totally understand why families want fall images.  the problem is, cincinnati is NOT the kind of place where you can count on the weather.  lucky for this family, everything worked out perfectly.  the leaves were still beautiful, the air was crisp but not cold, the grass was still green and the sun was shining.  not to mention, this family is gorgeous!   mary and i made the plan at the pre-session consultation and then were in contact via text as she went shopping.  everyone coordinated but weren’t too matchy matchy.  i love sending clients to my pinterest page so they can see for themselves how other families have put outfits together.   i enjoy helping my clients in any way i can.  it’s all about having a great session with as little stress as possible.  from the looks on their faces, i’d say this family pulled it off quite well!

i’m a bit behind on posting my amazing family sessions that took place at the beginning of the school year.  my apologies especially because i LOVE this family.  they have been a part of the bigshots family for years.  their last shoot was back in 2011 and the shoot before that was on my old blog!   they decided it would be just the girls this year.  julia is my daughter’s bff so i already feel super comfortable with her.  audrey is also a lovely girl and, as you can see, they’re both just beautiful.  add in a gorgeous setting and we were destined for great images!  stay tuned on my instagram feed for their home gallery going up soon!
