Chase {Family}

I love taking portraits of so many different personalities and being able to look back through my pictures remembering the behind-the-scenes for what caused someone to laugh or do something silly in the picture. At this particular shoot, my husband came along as my assistant since there were young kids and it was a wet and rainy day. He was certainly busy helping make the kids laugh (and probably their parents!) and keeping the kids warm and/or entertained while the grown-ups got their pictures taken. While my hubby was certainly being amusing, I am sure, I find the greatest pictures are when family members are interacting, joking around, or they just do something crazy and unexpected to make the subject of my picture laugh.  The Chase family knew exactly how to make each other smile and seemed to genuinely enjoy each others’ company, which always makes my job easier! Here are a few of my favorites from our session:)

I am seriously becoming a sucker for the vintage look. Sometimes I can’t help but edit certain pictures with that look.

This picture was one that I just couldn’t resist.

Nickerson {Family}

I’ve gotten a little behind with my blog postings due to the Christmas card rush! Here is the Nickerson family which I took clear back in October! (I can’t believe how the time has flown by!) Cameron is a friend and co-worker of my husband’s so it was great to be able to spend some time with him and his family and get to know them a little better. They have two very sweet kids and we had a great time! The kids even got to test out my camera (aka Big Berthe:). We may have a couple of budding photographers on our hands. Here are a few of my favorites from our session.
