The Pearson Family

Earlier this week I talked about the “bloopers” from this family session, which turned out adorable.  I want to share some of the “posed” pictures too.  The session was scheduled for a sunset and in a beautiful location with flowers, trees with hanging moss, and fields full of dried wildflowers (I never thought dried wildflowers could be so pretty).  The session could not have gone anymore perfect.  The weather was cool enough to keep the sweat off (in Florida that is a task in itself!) and the sun was setting perfectly over the trees.  Not to mention, could this family be anymore adorable?!

I loved how their outfits coordinated, yet weren’t identical.

I had been reading about silhouette pictures for a while and was waiting for the perfect opportunity to give it a try.  I love how the sun was at the perfect place in the sky to cast a sun flare through their hands.

I just love this one.  The sun casting a warm, fall, glow on the trees and the family casually walking down the road.  If you look closely you can see the family pup just in front of the family. So sweet!

Remember those dried wildflowers I talked about, this is them…I love how they added texture to the background of their picture.

One last picture, sessions like these make my job so easy…and make picking a “few” favorite images very hard!  They were such a fun group to work with and a beautiful family.  Thanks again Pearson family!!!

Pearson Bloopers!

The majority of the pictures that make it to the blog, Facebook, and Instagram are the “posed” pictures and not the “fun” pictures.  Don’t get me wrong I LOVE posed pictures, those are usually the ones that grandma wants printed on a canvas and hung in the living room, or they are used for Christmas cards and birth announcements.  With that being said, most of my personal favorites from my sessions and of my family as well, is the “bloopers” if you will.  Personally, I LOVE the bloopers…and usually those get the most compliments because they capture the true personality!  I recently took family pictures for a family friend that I have known for a very long time.  She has two of the most adorable little girls ever, and I couldn’t wait to get them in my camera lens.  At first they were a little shy, totally normal, then as they let loose (or we tried to get little sister to open up)…the personalities started flowing and we got some cute “bloopers”…enjoy!

Big sister tried her best to get little sister to dance with her.

Even though little sister didn’t want to dance, big sister did!

Little sister was skeptical about dancing.

Even with the entire family spinning and dancing, little sister still wasn’t sure about it.  But talk about adorable pictures right?!

 

I’ve always tried to snap some candid shots at every session and most of the time they turn out some really awesome pictures, but I’m going to start snapping more!

 

#PearsonBloopers were too adorable to not share 🙂
