Walt + April = Family

I love it when I just feel the love. Three generations in one photo in a place they call home. I was happy when Walt asked me to schedule some time for his family to celebrate their bond at his home. He and his wife always appear to be great parents and It was confirmed at the session.

I arrived a little early to see if we were going to shoot inside our out. Though it was a sunny day, the wind drove us indoors to protect the ladies' beautiful hairstyles. A quick count let me know immediately we were missing the oldest son, his wife and the third generation. With a bright outside and windows bringing it in, I opted to add some internal lighting from my Qflash set up in a stationary location to insure proper contrast and light to the shadows for this family fun setup. For couples only, I would opt for more contrast to set a special mood. Here, light means fun, see for yourself...

While finishing up with one set, this adorable little guy gave a quick lovable poses on the sofa. He feel into so naturally that I quickly stopped speaking to Walt and started capturing him.

They told me that not posing was the hardest part of the session. I guess they didn't believe I would catch a few good, unrehearsed shots, but here's proof. I love laughter. I love good, heartfelt laughter. Aside from that, I love to see cute babies having fun with their grandfather.

If this last picture does not make your heart melt, I'm not sure what will. However, there are a few more heart warming shots from the session. Check out the rest on the slideshow and at the event.
