meet the Bradleys! I have to say, this family was one of the most adorable, natural, affectionate families I’ve ever had the pleasure of photographing! Spinning, dancing, jumping, tickling, cuddling; this one’s a keeper!
Adriane wins the “hottest-shoot-of-the-year” award. And not just because she’s gorgeous. I think it was “only” 103* but it sure felt like 115.* Despite the heat, we enjoyed some lovely light and had fun running around the train-tracks and through the stream, plus Adriane (and her best friend Rachel) brought a bunch of balloons. Hooray!
But check them out for yourself:
The McCoys are a special family. For starters they’re my largest ever. Not 2 kids, not 4 kids, but 6! But more importantly, Mrs. M scheduled this shoot so they could have pictures to remember Mr. M by while he’s serving abroad. So these pictures aren’t just Christmas card covers, they’re a snapshot of the joy and affection of McCoy family life. Most of all, I love their natural, frank smiles. I barely had to coach them at all! The happiness just came bursting out!
(can I just say that this picture illustrates my favorite part of portrait photography? that magical moment where the walls come down and you just be yourself)
