I photographed this beautiful family in mid-October of this year. They welcomed me into their home where we shot some lovely outdoor environmental portraits in their backyard.
The kids were just so sweet and precious. River and Stella both have the most beautiful blue eyes! And when it came to posing–Stella had it down pat! I love to document this age when it comes to children portraiture because in a blink of an eye they grow up so fast.
And look at Goliath and Elvis the family dogs below guarding and posing with their most precious family members!
One of my favorite shots is the one below with Stella and her pet guinea pigs! She was so excited about it and anxiously awaited to have her portrait taken with them. And the embellishments on the guinea pigs just made my day!
River’s hairstyle is so endearing. His mom told me it always stands up in the back like that and it’s his signature hairstyle, so we made sure not to photoshop it out.
What an honor it was to meet and photograph this beautiful family!
