One of my best friends, Danielle, wanted me to take their family photos for this year. It took us months!! to set a date and the weather and other things did not help to do it anytime sooner, but we made it in the end :)
I love it when people think with me and Danielle is sure one of them. They came with a couple of bags with clothes, shoes, and lots of props and didn't mind dragging it all through the woods.
But it paid off in the end(be warned, photo overload!):
Meet my gorgeous friend Danielle
And her handsome husband Ed
Their son Colin, the happy kid.
Their son Michael, the more serious kid.
Oh the light was gorgeous :)
Danielle didn't wanted to have the kids take their Nintendo DS with them, but I said they could...what else did they needed to do when I was photographing mom and dad? :)
One of my favorite photos of this year.
This is a baseball family, kids are in teams and dad is a baseball coach and mom is their supporter....do not mess with her ;)
This is not the best picture I have taken but the sun was hard that day and this is an open field with no shadow....still like it though :)
When their is no shadow, you create shadow...I climbed the tree in front of them so I could block the sun from shining directly into their eyes, when you do so, you get the best light ever.
LOVE this one so much.
I want a family photo exactly like this of my own family.
I had a blast photographing my friends family and next year I will be doing more friends shoots since I didn't came around doing it this year.
PS: My once a year free shoot give-away is coming up again, so check this blog often so you do not miss it!
