This is one of the first families that I ever photographed. They lived down the street from us and our daughters are less than 3 months apart in age. Two years ago they moved back to their home country, but thankfully we've kept in touch and this last weekend we made our second journey to Warsaw since they moved home. Even though it was cold, it is November in Poland after all, we were still able to get some not quite so bundled up pictures of this loving family. I have missed working and interacting with them and am thankful that we are all comfortable with each other, because moments like the following just come naturally.
A Horse of Course
I have been attempting to get photos with this family for the last couple of months and thankfully we were able to match up schedules this last weekend. The leaves were gorgeous and even though it was so very cold we were able to still have a lovely time and I photographed something new for me - a horse. He was gorgeous and was excited to be in the family pictures and he is obviously well loved.
Thank you for trusting me to take your photographs and I hope that you enjoy the rest of your tour here - it was lovely working with you all.
To Be 4 again....
The months have been moving at varying speeds and the family's that I love to photograph are coming back for more sessions. I love seeing these families over and over again and am so glad that people trust me to take capture these special moments.
Miss J. is turning 4 this month and it marks 2 years that I have been taking her pictures. It is fitting that her last session was the same place that I did her first. So many hours spent at the zoo, so many favorite places. Happy birthday J and I am so glad that I had the opportunity to spend time with just you for a little while.
The Sun Did Not Shine
The sun decided that it wanted to hide behind the clouds the entire session, but it didn't rain so that was a plus. Thankfully this family was dressed warmly and adorably so it meant that the kids weren't freezing the whole time (seriously where did our warmer weather disappear to?). These kids did well for me - and although they were bored with me by the end of the session I was still able to get the shots that were needed to make this shoot something that shows a bit of who they are as a family.
An Anniversary Remembered
This couple decided to have their 5th wedding anniversary commemorated with a photo shoot. Although the husband wasn't too excited about having his picture taken he was a good sport and it allowed me to get a chance to capture their goofy side as well as the love that they share.
Thank you for allowing me to glimpse into a little bit of your life for the time we had together and I hope that these pictures help remind you in the years to come of the love that you have.
Fall leaves and Snuggles
The weather has been so lovely and the fall colors everywhere have been gorgeous. In the morning my daughter and I look out the window and comment on how the light is hitting the tress making the backyard a happy sunny place. I am thankful that I had the opportunity to work with this family on one of our warmer days. Little M. is turning one in a few days and she was such a smiley snuggley girl who was obviously her parents' pride and joy. It was a pleasure working with you and I hope that as you continue to go through your first year here that it is a happy one and that you have many good memories along the way.
Melinda loves photography and hopes this love comes out through her work.
