Cloudy winter day - perfection! Most people think the absolute best time to have family pictures taken is in the spring. I absolutely disagree. Springtime is nice - don't get me wrong - but there is something about the shades of winter that make it so appealing! Recently I had the honor of photographing this Clarksville family in Cooperstown at HOPE Christmas tree farm. Have you heard of them? The proceeds from their Christmas tree farm (including the deposit to have family pictures taken) is given to Montgomery County foster children. Two of the owners children came to chat with me while I waited for my family to arrive and they were the most well spoken children! Anyway, this precious family was referred to me from another awesome local photographer who was all booked up. I LOVED Courtney's ideas to dress up. We used very few props.
I just love how there aren't competing colors and it really wasn't that cold!
This family was amazing. Anthony had traveled off and on for two days to get to town. He arrived right before the photoshoot. Their little guy was not having anyone other than his daddy the whole time we were there. We did pictures until almost dark. By the time we left the little guy ran and gave me a big hug! I asked him if he would go home with me and he almost agreed!! Haha! Alas, he went home with his mama and daddy and celebrated Christmas a couple of days after this shoot. Thank you Williams family for being so precious!!
If you are thinking about booking a winter session I have a great Mini Session deal going on with a couple of time slots still available. Please let me know if I can add you to the schedule!!
