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!!!
