The Hall Family ~ Family Farm, Mechanicsville, VA ~ July 2011

What a dream shot for me personally. Imagine surrounded by 3 cute boys on a farm ahhh can't get any better! Oh don't be that way the boys were just that boys but they were adorable! What a great family all together! And the mom, Brandy, was full of her own great ideas and had some awesome props (which I wanted to steal)! I love the style and feel that this family had, it was still the true american farming family with the granddad who rarely smiles yet you can feel the love and pride he has in his family. 

Isn't he adorable!

It took me many times and help from the grandparents to get him to smile!

See what I mean about the props...stealing should be legal lol

~ Landscapes & Still Life ~ Canal Walk Richmond, VA ~

Before my last 2 family portrait sessions I took some time to walk around Richmond and enjoy the textures and history of the City.

The McLaughlin Family ~ Richmond Canal Walk ~ July 2011

This adorable family is part of mine so I may be bias but I think they are all extremely photogenic! We spent some time at the Canal Walk in Richmond, Va and though it was hot we had fun! Little Aiden was however not feeling it and quickly gave up on being in most of the family pictures. So we turned the session into more of a couple session and tried to snap some of Aiden when he was in a better mood.

One of the few shots we got while they watched the Canal boats come in!

I know its got a blurry hand in it, but he was being so cute 
waving to the leaving boat, saying "Bye Boat"

This was how Aiden felt about pictures that day! 
We thought it would be ironic to place the sign in front of him with the mood he was in :)
