{beautiful chidren and momma – client session}

I was so excited to photograph my friend Kathy and her 3 beautiful children!  Pretty soon I’m going to be saying ’4 beautiful children’ – I can’t wait!!  Kathy and her husband, Jeremy, are friends of ours and we love them dearly.  We can NOT wait to meet this fourth little one – I think I’m more anxious to know if it’s a boy or a girl than they are;-)  Kathy & Jeremy’s room made the perfect setting for these relaxed, ‘together’ filled photos.  We’ll have to get Jeremy in a few soon since he wasn’t able to be there for this session.  Doesn’t their bed look so comfy and pretty?  The kids just sank in all the pillows – it was fun to capture their spontaneity.  For my set-up – I could have used another light on the left side of the room but I opted for natural light for the entire session.  A reflector would’ve gotten in the way in the background so this is just good ole’ fashion natural light no modifiers.  I like how the light created shadows on their faces, sets the mood:)  Here’s bits of our session!

These are beautiful! Do you mind if I ask what song you have playing on here? It is so pretty, and really adds to the mood of the pictures.
