Introducing the Gatewood Family! I first met April through a mom to mom group on facebook (thanks Michele!) as I was scouring forums for a jogging stroller! Thankfully April had the answer to my quest and even better, was willing to BARTER for it! 🙂 So we met in Troy at Firefighters park and got to work on their beautiful family session! Her family is just amazingly adorable and she has an awesome and informative blog to boot!! Check her out at Mama on a Green Mission! Working with families with littles is sometimes difficult as every (kid) has their idea of how the session is going to go… so to get everyone in one place and smiling is always a minor miracle as well as a circus act! But we managed and over all the session was nearly flawless!
My favorite part of the session was when we went to go play in the dandelion field! We had a blast picking, blowing, running and rolling around in child-like wonder! My favorite part of a family session is always photographing the parents alone. Often couples have not had their portraits taken alone since their wedding day!!!! So it is a beautiful thing to be able to take some time and focus on the foundation of the family! Look at their bliss! Thank you so much for inviting me to capture your beautiful family!!!
