THE L FAMILY | SPRINGFIELD FAMILY AND PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY Park Summer Sunset Family Session

June 22, 2016

I get really excited about sharing sessions because I know what an impact it had on me to see myself professionally photographed for the first time, and time after time after that. How amazing I think it is that images can show feelings that I can’t put to words.  But sometimes, there are particular sessions that really steal my heart for one reason or another…and this was one of them. It might be the outfits, or the light, because both of those were pretty outstanding…but I really think it was about the family.

The mama of this beautiful family has become a pretty dear friend of mine over the last few years, and quite unexpectedly. She is a fellow photographer, and one of the most successful ones I know at that. There is a thriving community of photographers in Springfield area (which is one of the reasons I love the Rising Tide Society’s Tuesdays Together so much- it gives us planned times to meet!) that support each other well and I love that and being a part of that.  She is one of the women in that group who really reached out to me and showed immense kindness and sweetness in the early years of my business, and has remained a strong friend and ally since.  I was so thrilled when she asked me to photograph her family this spring, and am absolutely in love with the session she did for us also!  So getting to return the favor a couple of weeks later was truly exciting- and I love these images.

This mama and her sweet girl- her mini-me- bookended the session for me. We began with them, and ended with them, and these are some of my favorite images to date.

This mama’s hair and makeup were done by BJ Grand Salon and Spa, and the flower wreaths were from True Colors Floral. LOVED both of these elements, and I know they helped enhanced this session even more!
