It has been one cloudy winter season you guys. And while I love photographing families on any day, and clouds really open up different backdrops I can’t use on a sunny day. I do miss yummy glowy light in the winter. So can you imagine how stoked I was when right before this weekends session the clouds parted and the sun started to shine! Oh man, I was pumped!!! Because there is seriously nothing like warm golden hour light!
Before every family session, I have the same advice… Bribery is key! Now before you pick up your pitch forks, I know bribing your kiddos is not the best policy. But heck, every once in a while, it’s worth it! And each session when it is time for the parents to break out the big guns, I love hearing what their kiddos love above all else. And I’ve heard some goodies! From chicken nuggets, to movie night, to cheese-its! It is so much fun for me to find out what makes little ones light up for the camera! So when I arrived at David Street Station for the Elliot’s family session, and I heard the words “remember, we have bagels!” ohhemmgeee it was awesome! I loved it!! Seriously who doesn’t love a good old fashioned bagel?!?!
But let’s be honest, I loved this entire session. From meeting Matt and Shelby’s 3 wonderful boys and super sweet baby girl, to watching them do parkour all over the station! It was pretty fantastic. This amazing couple has such a beautiful vibrant family that I could have photographed all day (Can you blame me? I mean look at all that love and perfectly coordinated outfits!). But as the sun started to fade, and our session came to a close, nothing made these littles one smile bigger then when mom busted out those amazing blueberry bagels.
Thank you so much Shelby, Matt, Bridger, Logan, Krew, and Hailee for letting me photograph your awesome family! I had such a blast and loved getting to hang out with you folks!
