After Michigan threw us a curveball full of wind and rain, the Abston Family and I rescheduled for an early morning session the following week... and man!!! this was a fabulous decision! As a photographer- the morning light (although cloudy-- hello natural diffusion aka clouds) was beautiful and we managed to work ahead of the rain coming through! As a mom- it worked out well with the little ones being awake and attentive, instead of tired and hungry at the end of a day session! I definitely hope to do another morning session like this one again!
Jessica got in touch with me with an urgent need for photos for holiday cards, naturally I replied, I can do that!! Even with the delay due to weather, I was able to deliver images within a week. Thankfully, she made my job super easy and her family was so sweet and fun to work with-- I enjoyed every minute!
For this session, I ventured to Dundee and we spent time outside in their backyard... what an amazing fall backdrop, I might add!! I really enjoy sessions in a place thats comfortable for my clients, especially with little kids!! It's easier for all of us to be able to capture them in their normal "habitat" and everyone seems a bit more at ease... it allows for so many more candid and relaxed images!
Curious to hear what she thought of the session experience and the final images? She left me this review on Facebook:
"Charlotte is wonderful! She was super flexible for scheduling (and rescheduling when the weather was not cooperative), easy to work with and the pictures she gave us are priceless! She made a dreary cold day look so beautiful I can’t even believe it. Thank you Charlotte!!!"
These are all important things to consider when it comes time to book your own session with me!
Where would I be most comfortable? Where would be the most convenient? What kind of backdrop do I have available? What time is best?
I look forward to more sessions with this family and others looking for a more "lifestyle" photography session!
Here are some of my favorite images from this session!
