Back in the fall I tried something new! Well, I try new things for most of my shoots, I do crave variety, but conducting series of 25 minute sessions is not typical for me. I tend to enjoy spending lots of time with my families, letting both grown ups and children get very comfortable with me. It also gives them time to come back around when they get tired of my camera for a bit (this is usually the children). I was hesitant going in if I am to be completely honest. But I was so happy the way the day played out - beautiful weather, gorgeous families, happy children. Here are a handful of images from a selection of families from the day. I was so happy I could provide each family a variety of images, from posed to the ones that show true emotion (the ones I really love). In my opinion it is these photos, the ones where family members are showing their true personalities, laughing and interacting, these are the "framers."
