I have had the pleasure of photographing this beautiful family for a couple of years now. Stef and I are very similar when it comes to photos. We’ll do whatever it takes to get gorgeous images. Even if it means wearing a dress when it’s 7 above outside! I loved that Stef trusted me to choose dresses from my client wardrobe for her and her daughter to wear at the end of the family session. Sneaking in some Mommy & Me time is ALWAYS a good idea in my books. Adding these stunning dresses in this beautiful, open field is my dream come true!
Shooting in a open field can be challenging, but the results are incredible. I LOVE just how much light is available and the open sky in the background is my favourite. It’s not normally my clients’ first choice when it comes to location. So I’m so glad that Chester and Stef trusted me to enough to go along with it!
Chester and Stef’s daughter is only a few months older than my daughter, so we always have lots to chat about! Car seats, daycares, eating habits, Peppa Pig, Max & Ruby, etc! lol. I was telling them how my daughter is a MAJOR Mommy’s girl. Has been since I went back to work about 18 months ago and has only gotten stronger. To the point where she won’t let her dad put her to bed. Stef tells me that her daughter insists on Chester putting her to bed. This made me wonder what I would prefer. I complain about not being able to go out in the evening because she would just cry until I got home. But, would I really prefer her asking Daddy to put her to bed? Probably not. lol. So I will just enjoy this time with her and all the extra snuggles I get before bed.
Thanks so much you guys for letting me do these photos for you. I love them and hope you do too! I can’t wait for our next session together!
