Carissa and Chad were hoping to update their family pictures before they are busy fall season began. Fortunately, we were able to capture their family this month, before school started. The day of their session was a momentous day because their son had just completed his final day of preschool! The day was definitely worth celebrating. You can view Carissa and Chad’s family session from last fall here.
Not only do I love the traditional pictures with everyone smiling at the camera, but I also love the behind-the-scenes moments. For example, during Carissa and Chad’s session when their son was carrying back the younger daughter and when Chad was taking a trail walk with one of his daughters. Their older daughter is absolutely gorgeous and again, she rocked her individuals with her beauty. Their son would briefly showcase his true smile and you can see his genuine happiness. When we did their younger daughters individuals, I had asked the big kids for their help and making her smile. The word stinky brought out her full grin and laughter. It is always so much fun to see everyone’s personality shine!
Carissa and Chad, I’m going to be honest, I had put pressure on myself for your most recent session. Your previous family session was absolutely gorgeous and I was concerned that the lighting and location we’re not going to compare to your last family session. I do not know why I was putting undesired pressure on myself because your family made your gallery gorgeous! The lighting and location were perfect again, but your family’s attitudes and joyfulness truly took your pictures to the next level. I loved seeing all of your babies again and their personalities shine. I hope that these pictures bring a smile to your face whenever you look at them. I am so excited for you to see some of my many favorites from your family session.
