Fall Farm Session {Barnett Boys}

I have known the Barnett’s since little Cooper was just a couple weeks old. He was so tiny and adorable! Little did I know that this was the beginning of a wonderful friendship. Cooper was joined by Case a couple years later and our annual fall portrait session became a part of my autumn tradition! I look forward to the end of October when I can count on spending a few hours with Mama, Cooper, Case and whatever myriad of animals happen to be on the farm.

Farm sessions are my favorite. The love affair began with this family. They have driven me on a tractor, taken me on a gator, hiked me down the hill, up the creek and all over their beautiful home. They know that whatever they come up with, I am game! I have played in the snow with them, stomped through a creek with them,  mourned the loss of a beloved pet with them and fell in love with them. Totally.

Here is a peek at their most recent session.

Cool Summer Creeking Portrait Session

Creeking

 

Hot days, cool water, smell of the earth, reflections, crawdads, frogs, newts, minnows and giggles. Our creeking sessions are the perfect opportunity to capture magical portraits of your family.

Creeking sessions are perfect for kids of all ages from 3 to adult! We find they are the perfect setting for sibling or even cousin portraits. We create the perfect storm by centering portraits around a fun filled activity that will hold the attention of kids of all ages.

We suggest clothing that is colorful and bright (avoid green, yellow and browns as they tend to blend into the scenery.) Add in a pair of adorable rain boots and you have yourself a fun filled portrait session. If any of your kiddos have long hair we suggest pulling it back with a barrette or hair tie as they will be bending over to look at stuff in the water and in buckets and we don’t want to miss any of their gorgeous smiles.

To prep your kids for their creeking session we suggest encouraging them to learn about the creatures we might find in a local creek. This session can be offered as a mini session which would offer your kiddo 20 minutes of play and photos but we  generally suggest a full session, which lasts an hour to an hour and a half.

Customers that are interested in wall art of a creeking session often choose a storyboard with 6-9 images for their final piece:

Nine Square Storyboard

Other folks find it too hard to narrow it down to 6 or 9 favorite images and choose an album:
