Thanks to the rains yesterday, we had gorgeous morning light for our first Mini Session this morning! Such fun and adventurous personalities showed up and shone for the camera. Family photography is a blast for me because every shoot is different from the next. As I was saying in an earlier post, portraits are about people and great light. As you can see below, although each family was only photographed for 20 minutes, and in the exact same spot as the next, the results could not be more distinct. That’s because of changing light, and changing personalities.

Thanks to all the families who came out today, and for being so flexible with a flooded riverbank and muddy grass. It was a ton of fun regardless! I’m really looking forward to our next Mini Session on Sunday…stay tuned.
