We all love candids…whether they capture the squabble between siblings, the tears of toddler, or the joy of a mother and her daughter. The truth of this moment was tender loving goodness.
I want to praise this mama for her design skills, and bringing to life a beautiful vision for this family photography session through carefully selected props and wardrobes. These are the shots that so many other mamas look at and think, “Aw, I wish I made time to do that when my kids were that age!” Or maybe its just me. 🙂
Its such a treasure to have four generations together in one moment of time. The youngest members are usually to young to take any special note of it, but there will come a day when they will hold a photograph like this in their hands (image 3) and have a better sense of who they are and where they have come from. Something priceless, for many generations to come.
I love these photos because they capture some of what makes this family unique…their openness to adventure (we were warned by a third party of aggressive red rattle snakes, coyotes and ticks as we treaded along this beautiful hillside)…their love for football…their ability to laugh in the middle of it all. It was a perfect fall evening. The warm sun was setting, and the only other thing with breath in our path was a cotton-tailed bunny rabbit.
