I absolutely adore working with fun families like this one as a fine art Lake Country Family Photographer!
I met the lovely McNeill Family at an arboretum just a short distance outside of the Lake Country area for their custom family session. This was my first time shooting there, and it was like a photographer’s paradise with all of the spring magnolia trees in bloom! I can’t wait to use this location again in the future. Even though I love doing fall and winter sessions, spring sessions have a special place in my heart. Flowers are blooming, trees put forth new leaves, kids dancing in the rain, and, of course, beautiful photoshoots are taking place. I love being able to incorporate nature into these photos because it adds a little extra flare that makes those photos stand out from the rest.
The McNeill family was so sweet and were far from being shy. Normally it takes a few minutes for families to warm up, but not this crew! They jumped right into the fun! I set them up under a beautiful blossoming tree and told them I was just testing my light… but the very first frame was a keeper with little Cash being held upside down by his dad (see the first image below!)! I had so much fun chasing around little Miss Greenley and baby Cash! Greenley is such a loving big sister and planted lots of kisses on baby Cash’s cheeks. The bond that this family has is very special and radiated throughout the whole session.
It has been an honor to photograph this wonderful family at the arboretum filled with beautiful magnolia trees. Without further ado please enjoy some of my favorite moments from this spring family session. And don’t forget to leave some sweet comments for this family below.
