Family Session - The Ostrander Family

I love everything about this session so much. Between the adorable little girls in matching dresses, the location and just how amazing this family is. Beautiful summer days and lovely families are made for sessions like this.

I absolutely love getting to work with the same clients over and over again. I was fortunate enough to work with this family back over the winter and I was basically giddy when they were in touch with me for a summer session. I enjoyed working with them so much the last time around, that I was thrilled to get a chance to work with Sarah and her family all over again. I was not disappointed. Their adorable little girls were dressed in the most precious matching pink dresses and were so ridiculously photogenic that this session couldn’t be anything but a success.

It’s so hard to believe that this sweetie was just sitting up by herself the last time I got to photograph her, now she’s running around and clearly getting cuter by the day. She recently had her first birthday and it was so fun to get to take some one year portraits of this munchkin.

Can we talk about how perfect this rabbit was? Thank you so much Mr. Bunny for coming and hanging out by this tree. I’d like to book you for all my family sessions in the future.

I am so glad that Sarah pointed out this amazing old gnarly tree to me. It ended up being the perfect spot to take a few full length shots.

This location ended up being such a dream to work at. You wouldn’t know that there were people all around us and bikes wizzing through every few minutes. It was so pretty and relaxed to be in the park and also have this beautiful river area. Some of the local ducks and geese decided to come and hang out with us while we were standing on the pier.

We finished out the evening getting some shots of the birthday girl and her balloon. Which was the perfect way to wrap up. I can’t even begin to express how impressed I was with how well these two little girls behaved for the whole session. Having to sit still and listen for over an hour in the summer heat isn’t the easiest thing for little ones to do, but they were so good. Just an absolute delight to work with.
