This little family looks like they jumped of the pages of an Eddie Bauer catalog, no? They are not only awesome eye candy but also superbly genuine people! I can say this without pause because Amber and Brett are long-time clients (see here and here), but also friends.
Amber here is a hot mama who also happens to be a nurse. Or is it the other way around? Brett manages at State Farm, and the two are the doting parents to Brayden, one year young! We spent the day shooting at LaBagh Woods, a lush forest preserve that is the perfect setting for a “picture-perfect vintage childhood” theme. The shoot was styled by my friend Elaine of Shadowbox Dreams, who came bearing fun red lips and bowtie props, vintage wooden chairs and gilded picture frames!
Brayden is spunky, energetic and very smiley! A photog’s dream! Oh, and he loves to eat. We learned that at Nellcôte, where we dined together with the hubs and the kiddos after a hard day’s work! A great time was had––on the clock and off––but that’s easy when you have such good friends slash clients!
Does it seems like I’ve been doing more and more family shoots lately? It feels like a natural progression––from weddings to families, right? Having my own little family now makes me undertake these types of shoots from a new perspective––I recognize all the precious little nuances of interaction between mama and baby, baby and dad, mom and dad. Hopefully, my experiences as a mother lend a bit of a Midas touch to the lens. What do you think?
