I loved this series of my son playing chess so much I had to share. He has the greatest expressions!
Kai is studying this move very closely.
Over Thanksgiving, we got to warm up in Dallas to be with Matt’s family for the holiday. We had a wonderful time there and enjoyed seeing fall again. While there, we did a quick portrait session for Matt’s brother Adam and his family. It was a little different being in a place where there were no mountains in the background, but those gorgeous yellow and green trees really made up for it!!!
When Matt and I photograph portraits, I am the main person behind the camera, but almost always, Matt is with me holding reflector, and most importantly, getting the smile. I call him “the kid charmer” because he has a unique gift for being able to warm the coldest shoulders and pull out the shyest kids form behind legs. So, naturally, I had to share this picture taken of him at a family reunion this summer (photo by Peter Schwepker), trying to help my grandpa “get the smile” from our own children.
Last night my new lens arrived, the 70-200 2.8 IS II. I am really excited about it because it’s predecessor is my favorite lens, and this ones is supposed to be even better. So this morning I pulled it out and captured this cute moments between my two daughters, Liana and Jadyn. I’ll be using this one a lot over Thanksgiving break!
Kaylene, Chris and Riley are such a cute family! We had a lovely morning portrait session at the Denver Botanic Gardens at Chatfield. It was one of our last warm days as winter sets in, and this was a great way to spend it!This last one was taken as Chris threw leaves at Riley.
This weekend had absolutely stunning weather, and so Saturday evening was the perfect time for some last weeks of autumn family portraits at Memorial Park.
Sometimes the best photos come after you stop asking the kids to smile at the camera, like this one! What cute kids!
Boys and sticks…they are just meant for each other.
