This photoshoot was thrown together last minute and it couldn't have been any more perfect. Ali really wanted a "woodsy" backdrop but the rain was coming any minute. Randomly Ali thought their backyard might work. Sure enough, it was exactly what she wanted! Their daughter Joey just turned 2 and she wanted to make sure she had some photographs of her during this time before baby number 2 arrives. This family was so adorable and after Joey couldn't stop talking about her lollipop, her parents finally caved in. Thanks again Rick and Ali for letting me photography your sweet family!
After going back and forth on dates for family photos, we picked a day and decided rain or shine, we were going to go through with it. There was a break in the ran an hour before the time of their shoot and right as I jumped into my car to head over to meet the Gilchrist Family, the rain started up again. Despite a rough time for one of the kiddos to get ready, it didn't stop the picture perfect fall family photos.
Last September, Ben and Jessica were expecting their first child and I was able to photograph their maternity photos and their newborn photos. Fast forward a year and Bode is now a year old and the cutest little guy you could meet. They of course wanted to get some one-year photos in along with family photos while fall was in full swing. And we lucked out with the rain! We photographed at McMenamins Edgefield which ended up being the perfect spot for this family. They brought along a Radio-Flyer wagon that was actually Ben's when he was a kid. It was the perfect prop for little Bode.
