Something about family portrait photography melts my heart. Maybe it is that every member of the family is together at once. It could be the way I see the chemistry and joy that the whole family shares, and how even just after an hour long session I feel as if I have known them for years. It's the way that mom and dad hold their little one's. Or the way that their children race to them for that warm comforting hug. It's the natural bond that no photographer can "pose", or "create". I was thrilled to meet this momma! As the winner of a recent mini session giveaway, I couldn't wait for her session. She spent her college years here in Fort Collins, attending Colorado State University. We talked all things Colorado, from the weather, to her amazing hairdresser, to a recent concert she went to in Red Rocks (lucky!). Isn't she gorgeous!? Her and her husband are so sweet. I was surprised to hear too, that her husband knew members of my extended family growing up. We live in such a small world!
And as for these two tiny babes, they were wonderful! You would have never known they had wet feet from a rainstorm the night before. They ran around exploring the location, picking flowers, and spotting eagles up above. Giggling and full of hugs, this brother and sister share a special bond. He had a hand to guide her up the hill, and kisses for the top of her sweet head of curls.
I hope to see this charming little family again soon!
