Pattra had a family session with us about 2 years ago with their 1 year old. She loved the results, proudly displaying them all over the house. She knew she wanted to work with us again as they added another child to the family. Actually she contacted us to do a pregnancy session followed by a newborn session for Bruce. However she unexpectedly delivered a bit early and all plans went out the window. So then we thought let’s just back it up a bit once the family gets settled into the new normal because she has been wanting to do another family photo for a while. Well 1 year later everyone was ready! We had started off with the plan of doing a studio session. However the warm weather inspired us all so we went outdoors. Also Grace is now an explorer, from our experience the studio sessions are harder because she would have to stay in one spot. Now being outside does give much more to explore than indoors but we were able to get some casual photos of the family. These types of photos are not possible indoors and much more genuine at the park. Of course working with wind, moving children and a giant park to explore can be difficult. But when we have an amazing family ready to roll with it, move to a new spot and laugh the whole time, it just makes it perfect! We were able to get photos with grandparents, parents, individual and those amazing shots alone with mom and dad. Finally a new updated family photo for the house. We were happy to work with everyone again, see how big Grace got, meet Bruce and also grandparents. Pattra’s dad kept us entertained more than the kids – wanting to keep his jacket on for the photos, taking his own photos right along with us and wandering off for his own adventure, just like Grace. I see where she gets her exploring spirit!
