Family: (n) a group of related things or people.

Here are more of the images from the 'L' family shoot at Fox Hill in Vernon. What a beautiful night, filled with soft, warm light and lots of happy smiles. The adults and children alike were so cooperative and helpful, making the session go smoothly. After we got some shots of the whole entire family together, we took time to get individual smaller family units done-- so this post is all about the different sub-units. I'm even going to try to get everyone's name correct here. I know, I'm a little nuts. But I am going to try.

Sometimes it's hard for me to decide which pictures to showcase on the blog, since there are so many different options. But this next one made me giggle out loud when I saw it. And I'm not a giggler. So that's saying something. Can you resist these two? :)

Raymond and Mathew:

This is Liz and Bob. It looks like they have such fun together. Plus, I love the setting sun reflecting on the stone wall behind them. So pretty-

And here we add in Miss Victoria and Mr. Mathew-

Okay, now this is Marie and Joe, with Morgan & Vincent... quite the stylin' family shot:

And now their family in color, with soft light streaming through the trees:

Mother + Daughter + evening light + trees = so pretty

Speaking of mothers, I had to share these little 'in-between' shots we grabbed of two more moms and their little ones. Being the one with the camera, I have few pictures of my children with me when they were babies. So this is something I always try to get for mothers. There's something so heartwarming in images like these, showing the relationship between mother and child.

Here is Uncle John with all the nieces and nephews. The stonework and flag made me think of vintage, so here we are in sepia tone:

I just did a session with Jim and Ellen, but we still wanted to grab some of the 3 of them together. This spot was Jim's idea-- good thinking! I seem to remember he had some good ideas on our last shoot at the tree farm, too. (Remember, a tiny tree and a tiny little boy? ;)

We wanted to be sure to get some with the grandkids, too-

Thanks to all of you for a nice evening! You did a beautiful job! Your customized gallery for print choices will be sent to you soon.
