A Perfect Moment \\ Family & Children

natural candid of family smiling

I am absolutely in l-o-v-e with every single image from this family portrait session the other day! These two kiddos are seriously adorable overload! I have so much fun capturing their true expressions while they are exploring, playing, rock climbing or just sitting there being adorable! We photographed late in the day at one of my favorite local state parks. As the sun was setting, we headed up to a beautiful spot on the cliffs overlooking the vast Saint Croix River Valley. There we captured my all-time favorite image of this family just being a goofy, laughing, loving family, lit perfectly with the warmth of the evening sun… literally a perfect moment! At the very end of the session as the sun dipped below the cliffs, the kiddos grabbed their favorite Halloween costume and favorite buzz tee and played dress up… photo session style!

Beautiful afternoon sun with a gorgeous farm location and a stunning high school senior made for the perfect graduate session of 2014! After posting a casting call in the early months of this year for a couple local high school students to be the face of CiogiArt Lifestyles Photography Graduates and this beautiful girl was recommended and interested, I knew this was going to be an amazing session! Then add her boyfriend’s family farm, gorgeous summer sun and antique props to the equation… let’s just say I was in senior portrait heaven!! I have to say my favorite part of the day was when we setup inside the old barn, extra care had to be taken with every step to ensure we wouldn’t fall through the floor! Walking in I immediately knew these shots would be my favorite, the sun was streaming in through the small slits between the handmade…
