Remember Claire who won our 2008 Annual Baby & Child Photo Contest this year-This is her with Mom and Dad. Still cute as ever and now we can see why she is so stinkin' cute, she comes from two parents with good genes! As part of winning First Place they chose to receive a free family portrait package as their gift from us. So we met in one of my favorite photo spots and got to work. By the way, blue is my new favorite color for portraits!
It wasn't long before we needed a little fun time for Claire. So her and Dad ran after each other and then played a game of toss... Yes- he caught her! This is one of my favorite ways to photograph kids at this age, it is a lot of fun for the kids and makes an awesome memory portrait.
And, now over to my favorite wall with the Wall's.. ha ha : ) we had fun using that expression because I am always looking for the perfect wall or background when I am shooting on location!
Thanks to Chelsea, my High School Senior "job shadow" this year, for her senior project! She helped us find the perfect rock to sit on by the water. I am really excited about that because I have been searching for awhile for THE rock and this was it! Although Claire was done at this point we still tried anyway and ended up with a more relaxed look here.
One more stop before we were done. We found an odd patch of grass in the middle of nowhere and thought we would try it out. They relaxed together on the grass, played games, gave "family kisses" and told secrets to each other as Chelsea and I sat near them to capture the moments.
Thank you Wall Family! We had fun with the three of you and I am looking forward to showing you the rest of the photos from your family session soon. Thanks again Chelsea for helping out!
