The Morris Family | Courtenay Family Portraits

I always have a list of easily accessible go-to locations and am always happy to go location scouting for the client that wants something unique, but there’s no need to go searching for the perfect location for your family portraits when your own property has lush dark green grass, earthy moss, and miles of forest all around.

I’m never sure what I’ll get to work with when someone requests a session at their home. Sometimes it’s dark and there’s not enough light, sometimes there’s no shade and the session is booked for the middle of a bright sunny day, and sometimes it’s perfect πŸ™‚

This little face lol She was SO much fun to follow around and take photos of. This was her sassy little disapproving look when she caught me taking her picture yet again lol Sassy or not, she’s still adorable πŸ™‚

I firmly believe that this image deserves to be blown up on a lovely piece of polished aluminum and hung on the wall. These colors are the things that a photographers dreams are made of πŸ™‚ Can you see it? And those perfect little pig tails! Am I the only one that thinks she looks a little likeΒ Cindy Lou Who? Maybe I’ve read too much Dr.Suess over the years lol

Sometimes it’s fun to just sit back and let kids be themselves with minimal direction and see what happens. I think this one and the next few would make a beautiful series to hang on her bedroom wall!Β little girl sitting in the grass looking at the camera little girl sitting in the grass looking down little girl sitting in the grass looking down little girl holding a stick
