Misty Reader {family}

So despite the fact that it was bitterly cold outside, and Misty’s kids weren’t typically thrilled about photos this day, I think just capturing real emotion is priceless. The stare of utterly despair and a crying little brother didn’t stop me from photographing this family. You guys were troopers during this shoot and I think these pictures turned out pretty darn cute.

Kirsten and her little family

We were crunched for time and the weather growing colder. This day was the best day we had at the time for her little ones to take photos in. It was beautiful out, but bitter cold. It took a little bribing to get these little ones to sit still enough and half way look warm lol. Even though their expressions give away just how cold it was, sometimes these are the priceless photos. Smiling or not, your kids are beautiful Kirsten 😀

Amy’s family

I haven’t seen Amy in years. As kids, we grew up together every summer out at Salmon Lake. I remember swimming in the creek, harassing seagulls and making forts with Amy and her sister. She is a few years older than me, so naturally as a kid, I thought Amy was the coolest and super pretty :P. She came home and brought a few of her prize possessions with her and asked me to do their family photos. Her little miss had her own agenda, but with the help of my assistant, Neva and some beads, we got the shots we wanted! Amy, you have a beautiful family and it was so fun for me to see you years later embracing motherhood. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
