I was thrilled when Corina contacted me for a family session…they are a beautiful family, inside and out, and I loved having them in front of my camera! It may or may not be a very special milestone birthday this year for Corina (wink, wink), and this session was a great way to capture this special time in their life. I met Corina through church, and she always has a smile and kind word. She truly epitomizes what it is to be a mom, wife and woman of faith. She is super inspiring, and as I mentioned to them during their session, Corina = sunshine + happiness. We had a lot of fun planning this session, and I loved that they were game for almost anything (even climbing over dirty railroad ties. Thank you!!).
We spent a lovely evening out in the Cultus Lake area, and the little downpour that occurred happened while we were driving and certainly didn’t dampen our spirits. I have to say, that these were some of the nicest and best behaved kids…They are at a great age (no toddler drama and no teenage attitude! haha) and whle Darryl may have taken a little coaxing (don’t worry, most men do LOL), we got some amazing images. I feel so honored that I was asked to do this session, thank you for trusting me with capturing your family!
As you might see below I had the hardest time picking my favorites, so be prepared for image overload of this fabulous family of five.
Corina and I were emailing back and forth on outfits…I absolutely love what she picked out. Coordinating but not too matchy, and perfect for the surroundings:
Corina has a special love for daisies (their daughter is even named Daisy!) and we were thrilled to find this field with daisies.
See those balloons? I brought them along for the session, but I was super disappointed that they flew away before we had the chance to use them.
Time for an outfit change…again, impeccable taste! Love how perfectly my vintage quilt worked here too.
And check out those fabulous shoes and gorgeous dress, it’s THE dress (you’ll have to ask her the story sometime, it’s so sweet).
Love that she wore it for this session
Meet Frodo. At two years old, he’s an incredibly well behaved Goldendoodle and he even posed for me
And of course a visit to Cultus Lake wouldn’t be complete without a stop at Frosty’s ice-cream. A well earned treat after all the pictures!
I did mention there were lots of pictures, right? Our last stop was this perfectly fabulous and run down gas station.
Thank you so very much Corina, Darryl, Colton, Levi and Daisy. I had so much fun photographing your sweet family! Enjoy your sneak peek…I will be in touch soon with your slideshows!
Corina brought along the other chair which she got from her Oma (I love incorporating special items into sessions!)
