Parkes Family Portrait Session - Orangevale, CA
I seriously hadn't seen these two since their wedding day last September, so when I got the e-mail from Michelle about scheduling their first family portrait session, I was ecstatic! I love the ability that I am able to document such big moments in people's lives, and being able to see them grow over the years is so much fun. After some quick planning, we met up last month and spent a little time documenting their brand new family of three. It was so hard to pick just a few of my favorites from their family portraits, but I tried my best to whittle it down :)
Of course I had to get them each to take a moment for some mommy/daughter & daddy/daughter individuals. I just LOVE the moment between Michelle & little Olivia, and then the precious little smile she gave when with Keith... Seriously, this little lady was as cute as can be!
Keith spotted a tree across the park that was at the peak of changing colors, so while on our way over we stopped in a little area that had amazing light. Add some amazing people, and whaa laa!
Oh I just love everything about this next one. I'll probably blow it up big and use it as a sample product for next year. So much love all over it!
And here we made it to our final spot, the awesome yellow tree. It was the ONLY tree in the park that we saw changing colors, and it was fantastic. We were able to get some great interactions between the new family of three, and all the while Olivia was such a trooper!
I'll leave you on this final one, which after the fact I realized it was very simaler to one from way back during their engagement session! It will be so much fun to continue to recreate this pose as their family grows year after year :)
It was so fantastic to see these two (now three!) again, and I cannot wait to watch them grow year after year. I'm already super excited for the family portrait idea we talked about for next year ;) So much fun, and I love how everything turned out! <3
