I love this family. Nicole has done our hair for years, we were pregnant at the same time and our littles are only two months apart. I was her client long before she was mine, but through it all we’ve become friends and I look forward to taking pictures of her family every year. The first session I ever shot with Nicole and Steven was their maternity session, I was almost 8 months pregnant myself, it was a windy day in late January. A few months later I went to their home to take photos of their newborn babe Talon. Then this time, last year, we did a family session. All of their sessions were fantastic, and I am really lame because I never shared them on our blog. I may need to do some back posts.
Anywho, this year Nicole and I put our mighty brains to work trying to come up with an interesting location or theme for their family session. Nicole knew she wanted to include her parents and we played with a lot of different ideas and finally landed on a very very cool place near the airport where the planes fly right over your head just before they land. It’s kind of magical and reminiscent of that scene from Wayne’s World, where they’re laying on the hood of a car, “ok, keep looking up!”
The sky was SO beautiful that day and her parents are adorable. During the session Nicole whispered to me that they’d never had professional pictures taken and in that moment I felt incredibly special and honored. Here are my favorites, prepare yourself, there are a lot.
