The Engstrom’s had me out to their beautiful home in Sherwood a couple of weeks ago. It was an amazing day and I loved driving past all of the farms and fields (of course keeping my eyes out for potential, future locations). I was so excited when I pulled into their driveway… what a gorgeous home and property!  Then to top if off, down the stairs come their two darling daughters all ready for a morning of photos. I had so much fun taking their pictures and would have kept shooting (I think they were going to kick me out), they were so fun and the girls were the BEST little models (those eyes and smiles)! Can easily say this was one of my favorite sessions! I can’t wait to see them all again.

Kristen’s mom emailed me late one night asking if I could do a few head shots for her daughter.  I was so excited because they have this amazing white barn in the middle of suburbia (my house looks out onto it)  that I have been dying to use in photos! The only time I had available was early that next morning, so I rolled out of bed, walked 15 feet over to the barn and was ready to go! Kristen is a funny girl… she has no idea how pretty she is. Her smile is infectious and turns into a laugh every time. I love it when people have a hard time just smiling ‘a little bit’… she would just burst into this huge, beautiful smile every time. So her ‘just a couple of head shots’ turned into a full senior portrait session and I loved every minute of it. With her long, curly blonde hair, barn, grass, plaid shirt… we were saying it was her Taylor Swift moment. She pulled it off to perfection!

I had such a great time meeting the Alessi family. We had a beautiful day for family pictures and the boys were ready… well at least one was. It was pretty funny actually how much the little one was avoiding me, all of us for that matter. They brought toys for him to play with … so he just played away from us. He had some snacks… well he just spit those out.  Then his older brother starts jumping up and down.. and wouldn’t you know it… he started to smile! After that we were good to go! It took 45 mins for him to warm up and an older brother tired of jumping but that’s OK!

Thanks again to the Wieser family for a great time at our shoot! We buzzed down to the creek in our neighborhood which gave the boys plenty of sticks and rocks to throw and run around with. Of course, sometimes boys will be boys and we had to work really hard to get one of them to cooperate… it’s amazing what you and the parents will cave in on to get them to do what you want them to do :)!!
