Fall Photos at Home
Long time Wildflower fans will likely recognize this family from these Fall photos almost immediately. I’ve had the honor of photographing Melanie, Jeff, and their crew since the early days. Back when this was just a little hobby, and I had no idea where this photography thing was going to take me. Since that very first session together, we’ve all grown. Me, artistically, technically, and in business. And them… well, mostly in height and size. haha. I actually did a before and after of one of their kiddos on Instagram recently. It’s crazy to see the difference! Keep reading to see what I mean. 😉
And here’s that before and after I mentioned. Mommas, hug those little guys tight. It feels like it’ll be forever before you get to this stage, but I’m sure Melanie feels like she blinked and he’s almost an adult!
For this year’s Fall family photos, they decided to utilize their gorgeous yard. We did a family session at their previous home a couple of years ago, but since that time, they actually built a new home and moved. It’s seriously beautiful, and their yard has so much to work with! I love doing client “back yard sessions”. It just adds such a sweet personal touch to their photos. It also keeps their session unique from everyone else’s!
Melanie always does such a fabulous job coordinating her family’s outfits. Although I will say that it was a little bittersweet to see beautiful Sophie and Darcy wearing typical teen clothes vs all the Matilda Jane ruffles like in years’ past. They’re growing up to be such wonderful, gorgeous girls. And they’re always amazing big sisters to their younger siblings.
Baby Ruby is also growing like a weed! She has the best personality, reminding me a lot of my own toddler. She did have a bit of an ouch moment, but was able to perk up pretty quickly. Especially when the “Never Never song” as she put it was playing (from the Greatest Showman).
I just loved everything about their Fall photos at home this year. The colors were perfect, and of course, there’s no faking that connection they have. None of this is just to look perfect for the camera. They truly are genuinely this amazing and sweet together. Watching them interact and being able to capture that is an honor.
I actually loved this session so much that I created a beautiful sample album featuring a brand new color option! I’m so excited to add this new size to the albums I offer too. This gorgeous 12×15 album just adds a different layout option for your photos. You have your choice of traditional high quality e-surface printing or metallic linen pages if you prefer something a little different. New cover options have also been added to this line including velvet (it’s so pretty). Check out this gorgeous new linen option… it sparkles!! This particular line of albums are my favorite and definitely an incredible investment for your family’s memories. Besides the vibrant colors and custom design work, these handcrafted albums have a lifetime archival guarantee. They’re seriously so beautiful. If you’d like to view them in person (because a digital version just doesn’t do it justice!), feel free to schedule a complimentary consultation for your session.
