It’s been a couple years since I’ve photographed this loving family.   I can’t get over how much the kids have grown in such a short amount of time.   Pam and Neil live down the street and around the corner from us.  Pam is an wonderful mom and an amazing runner.  Yeah she’s ran the Boston Marathon along with her many other talents.  Her husband Neil is super smart and very kind.  I first met Pam a few years ago when Oliver (her middle) and Evie (my oldest) were in preschool together at St. John’s in Tipp City.  Oliver has always been one of those kids who melts my heart!  I swear he always has a big smile on his face when he sees you!  Plus he gives the best hugs!  His older sister Lucia is sweet, smart and a very determined and talented gymnast!   The baby of the family is Vivian!   She’s the funny, always singing, daredevil of the group!   Vivi and my daughter Josie get along like peas and carrots!  They play SO well together…that Pam and I often trade them back and forth.  They tend to keep each other occupied together vs. getting into trouble while on their own.  Everybody wins!  LOL

I think you’ll fall in love with this family pretty quickly as I have.  You can see their personalities shine through in these photos. mother daughter photo tipp city ohioclassic family portrait in tipp city ohiocandid family dayton ohio photographerNot all mamas and kids can rock a serious photo.  This one of Pam and Vivi???   ONE OF MY ALL TIME FAVORITES!!!mommy and me session dayton ohiosiblin giggles tipp city family photographerI LOVE me a good silhouette.  And I love a good family silhouette even more!!!  We had the PERFECT weather for this.  Sadly if it’s very cloudy or overcast….these don’t turn out as well.  Luckily for their session…we had clear blue skies and sunset at a decent hour.  If I tried this in the middle of june most kiddos wouldn’t make it till 9:30pm…so fall is a great time for getting this shot before everyone’s bedtime!family sihouette photography

I’m sure you recognize this adorable and fun family as they are not new to the Faye Sommer Photography blog!  Click here for their session from last year.  I’ve been their family photographer for many years and I look forward to their session each year!  Natalie had mentioned the pretty yellow flowers, in a field just outside of Tipp City for this session.  I had been eyeballing the same field and had just shot a senior session there days before.  It’s such a pretty field!  Some fields are full of ugly weeds…but this is a blend of beautiful tall grasses and pretty yellow wildflowers.   Between coordinating  our schedules and catching beautiful light that meant I only got about 40 minutes to shoot with them.  AND we added their cute dog, Stella for a couple of shots.  Folks I usually allow 1- 1& 1/2 hours for family sessions!  I had to hustle!  I worked my magic and we were able to pull it off.  It helps that their kids are really well behaved.  But I have tricks up my sleeves for younger kids that aren’t as great at listening.

They laughed at my jokes, followed along to my posing ideas and we were able to get what feels like a full session in half the time.  Natalie is secretly hoping for a snow scene family session this winter…..and frankly so am I.  That would be so beautiful!!!  Fingers crossed over here Nat that the conditions line up and our schedules work!  Photographing Fall and Winter in Southwest Ohio can be SO unpredictable.   I’ve loved the warm temps…but it’s like September and August switched.  Thanks again Natalie, Jason, Taylor, Aiden and Maddie!  It’s always an honor and so much fun to photograph you guys!!!

I still have a few slots left for Dayton area family Fall sessions!  Contact me if you’d like to get on the books. tipp city ohio family photographyohio black and white family photography tipp city family photography with dogtipp city ohio fall family photographytipp city ohio family photography flower fields
