I’m a big fan of imagination. I love books and how your minds eye can create the scene and characters, and really make a book come alive. Sessions are kind of like reading and writing books for me. I have certain things in mind to help create a story, but as the session begins, the story unfolds into something magical – always based on the characters in the story, a child or a family. They help me write the story. One of the props I brought to this session was a yellow parasol. I had expected to use it in someway, and I’m so glad I was able to watch Abbi’s little story unfold. I call the series Dancing on Sunshine.
Here is a sneak peak of a lovely family portrait session from this past weekend at Wilson Park in Mishawaka. More to come!
This family portrait session took place on the Yellow River Road property. The warm light in this session was just wonderful! It reminded me a bit of Rembrandt’s colors. The Banks family is one family I loved working with. They just happen to be my family but I really do think they are kind, down to earth people. I noticed a while ago that their children are the most well behaved kids ever. I’m told that not only are they good kids, but they’re really smart. Natalie, a natural around the camera, loves to read and is a bit shy, like me! Noah has always been in high ability classes, loves sports, and playing guitar with his dad. Whether its grocery shopping or traveling, the family loves to do things together. They even agreed to have a picnic with my mini homemade apple pies. I hope they’ll love these images as much as I do! Enjoy!
P.S. Keep an eye out for another blog post on a special little project we worked on with this family.
