This hike was pure perfection! This family goes for a hike in the woods every Sunday, and it was such a joy to be able to document this memory for them.
They came across rodent holes, and fallen trees! They had a snack and some laughs, then back home to share their stories of all that they’d seen!
Mom, Amelia couldn’t get over how relaxed and wonderful it felt to do her portraits in this way. There was no forcing the kids to do anything they didn’t want to do, there was no need to be perfect – just REAL! She saw a picture of her littlest in the back of my camera, pulling on her ponytail and exclaimed, “That is SO her right now, in every way!!” …to me, I wouldn’t have noticed that pulling her ponytail might be a quirk, but I’m so happy that in capturing the moments as they truly happened, I was able to commemorate that special “ism” that will one day disappear without even noticing it had. So Good!!
Gosh, I love Storytelling Photography.
