A Family Session in the Park

Family sessions are some of my favorite things to photograph. I love capturing the different personalities of each of the children, and showing the love of a mother and father while they interact with their family naturally.  I try to keep my sessions as relaxing as possible, allowing kids time to play, explore, and basically just be kids. (The kids think they are just playing, but in reality, I am capturing some of the best images at this time.) My most recent family sessions was exactly that, relaxed for mom and dad, and fun for the kids...

This is one of the cutest families ever! The oldest daughter was so loving to her younger brother and sister. The middle son had been practicing his smile all day and was proud to show it off to me. And the littlest one was full of curiosity and eager to explore. We started off our session by the waters edge, and let the kids toss sticks into the river and look for fish.  From there we walked down the path through the trees and tall grasses and continued our session as we went along. We talked about frogs, bees, snakes and fairies, had a sword fight and raced down a hill... a pretty nice summer evening if I say so myself.
