It was the perfect fall evening for photos. We had to reschedule from the downpour in the previous week. I’d probably done 4 family sessions in the two weeks leading up to their session. I love children but after working to get suitable family photos with several kids 2 years old and younger- working with their dog Griffey was a breeze!!
Sara and Brandon’s engagement session had to be one of my favorites. Not only because it was at the beautiful Shaker Village outside of Lexington, but because we found a big field of sunflowers!! It’s ever gal’s dream to photograph in a field of sunflowers:)
The Barringers- one of my favorite family sessions of all time. Not because they were an adorable family, or because we got to be out in the country. Sarah is one of my longest time friends. I was in her wedding four years ago. Yeah FOUR whole years already! There isn’t a day lately I’m not reminded time is a freight train. With their little girl AJ (Allison Joy), Sarah, Jim and I shot all over his grandma’s property on a lovely September morning. What a cute little lady Miss Allison was:)
I had the best time with Morgan and John at Shaker Village! It’s my favorite location outside Lexington, Ky. They were so full of joy and I think so much of that joy came from each other. They are a couple that just wants to be together- like best friends:) Sessions go so much smoother when the man actually has a good time taking photos. (Ok, I know it’s not a big “guy thing” to want to have your picture taken. The thought can be a real drag I’m sure! But hey guys- you get to be near and snuggle up next to your gal, the woman of your dreams!) John was a complete trooper and I think he may have enjoyed the time we all three spent taking pictures together. That makes for better images. The couples reactions were so sweet and true toward each other. The couples wedding will be in April in Frankfort and I’m so excited to be responsible for their wedding photography.
They are the most important people in our lives. They know us through and through. We can’t deny each other. It’s family. Family sessions are the most interesting. You just never know what kind of dynamic you’re going to get. Completely the case with the Fett family. They have three of the sweetest, most well-behaved kids. Gosh and adorable! I think every time the shutter clicked the picture was fabulous just because they were so cute! After re-scheduling for rain once, the night we did photographs was lovely and not too humid. Such a beautiful family:)
