My Top 10 of 2010 {#1}

{I have decided to show and tell my favorite shots from 2010….often the pictures that grip me are not the picture-perfect poses, but the images that tell a story…}

I tried. I really did. But when I looked through the images in this session’s folder, I COULD NOT choose just one. It was an impossible task. So you get 8.

Grace and Ava are sisters, and this is their dad’s shop. Their mom, Christall, wanted some pictures in the shop that her amazing husband has worked so hard to build…and this is what I gave her! Sure, there are some nice ones, but this one, this I think shows their true personalities.

Christall and I talked many times about what they wanted to do for their session. After throwing around ideas about a candy shop and a few other things, we settled on a picnic at the beach. I love that she put so much effort into the details…she brought candy to incorporate the candy shop idea, and fun colored sodas, and … well, you will see their dessert later!

Another of my favorites from this session. After they finished their picnic, they spent a few minutes soaking in the company of their family and hanging out. I love that they are literally hanging out ON their Mom…some things never change!

Christall had this idea, and while Ava wasn’t quite sure what she was suppose to be doing, Grace was gung ho!

I love these two pictures together. There was a HUGE see-saw at the park, and of course the girls had to ride it! With much help from Dad, they were able to get that thing going (maybe a little too much, I remember a few pretty hard smacks on the ground on both sides!)

And then, after all the more posed pictures and running around the beach, it was time for dessert. I suggested that they incorporate some activities into the shoot, and s’mores was one of my suggestions. Ha…well, Christall brought mini-marshmallows, and her brave hubby did indeed roast them for s’mores! I love this picture, and Jason’s bravery!

In the end, this session was my favorite because of the time that Christall and I put into finding a great location and activities that represent her family. I want to encourage all of my future clients to consider a lifestyle portrait session…the extra work is easily worth the amazing, real images we will capture!
