Joyful. If I could only use one word to describe this family it would be joyful. We had so much fun during this session; I know you’ll see the joy shining strong as you view these pictures. All three kids were just amazing in front of the camera – the perfect combination of poised and playful. When we needed posed pictures, they gave me posed and when we cut loose for candids, WE CUT LOOSE. I have a saying, “personalities shine when listening ears fail.” Their listening ears didn’t necessarily fail, but man did their personalities shine. Thank you Mom and Dad for raising such fun children and giving them a zest for life. You guys set the tone and your love is flowing through these images as well. When children are willing to be themselves with me, I know they are comfortable in their own skin at home too. You guys are all amazing. Thank you for trusting me to capture your joy and document your personalities shining bright. I loved every minute of it and can’t wait to do it again.
This family session was photographed in Charlotte’s Freedom Park in early April. Here are just a few of my favorite pictures from their final gallery.
