At the end of October I photographed the Vaskelionis family. I love the vibrant blue colors that they chose to wear for their photo session. It counter balanced so nicely with the golden-orange fall foliage.
Their daughter Sammie was simply gorgeous and had a smile that filled your heart with joy. From one moment to the next it was so easy to capture her doing something completely natural and adorable.
The following black and white image is one of my absolute favorite images from the session. When Sammie got on the ground to play with the rocks, I wasn’t sure whether it was worthy of me continuing to shoot, but I’m so happy that I made the right decision and kept right on shooting. The sweet interaction between Mom and Sammie and Sammie touching the tip of her Dad’s fingers just brings the whole image together for me of a real moment. It still gives me goosebumps when I look at the image. It’s simply beautiful.
I want to thank the Vaskelionis family for giving me the gift of capturing all these wonderful moments of Sammie. I hope they always cherish these beautiful images of Sammie at this tender age.
