I think this family wins for most spectacular sky for a silhouette session. It had been clear all afternoon, but as they pulled up, a summer rain opened up. It was one of those delightful rains- the sun was still shining, the rain was warm and not soaking. Just a few big fat drops falling quickly. We waited about 5 minutes and when the clouds parted, the sky exploded into color; the drama of the rain clouds still close by. It was breathtaking!
This family is always a joy to photograph. Their love for each other is just as spectacular as the sky- it’s clear and bright and strong. I don’t think I’ve ever seen this mama frazzled to the point of snapping. Dad always has a laid back smile and easy going nature. The kids dote on each other.
These three are like puzzle pieces. On their own, brightly colorful, but when you put them together you see how perfectly they fit alongside each other. They have three distinctly different personalities that still somehow complement each other so well. The oldest, a natural leader and answer-seeker. The middle, a ballerina princess with a fierce heart. The baby, strong willed but easy to smile. Together, they are independent, curious, brave kids who look out for each other and are ready to conquer the world.
And, of course, they are this way because of these two. Mom and Dad lead with their hearts. Open, gentle but strong, and beacons of unconditional love. Their spectacular children are mirrors to the unconditional love and grace they exude. Good people make good families.
