We have previously done a few photo sessions for another "Baker Family", and now it was time to get big bro in on the action. When he contacted us we sent out our usual information package in which it explains that we enjoy (especially with children) props or things that have a special meaning that might add a touch of reality to a photograph. He had a great idea, his hobby was to skateboard!
We were just barely ready to start the session when he jumps up on the ramp, throws his helmet on his beautiful daughter's head, and poses as if they were about to drop in the half pipe. It all came together so well. This is what we mean by props and interactivity...a moment that will last forever!
(**PLUS** it proves that dad was cool at one point in his life)
Capturing the whole family in an otherwise non-traditional place is a great way to stand out and tell a story without words!
7 months old and already accustomed to deck tape!
And of course we are there we do plenty of "traditional" portraits...and how could you not with a cutie like this?
It's easy to catch a beautiful moment with a family with so much love for one another!
I love the Yin and Yang of the warm, soft and beautiful little person against the cold rusted metal and rock bed
Leigh snuck the baby away and I gave Jonathan and Christina their time to shine in front of the lens!
They worked it!!
Beautiful Momma and Daughter
After it was all said and done, we headed back to the skate park to tag it with some good 'ol sidewalk chalk to remind everyone that not all family photos have to be set with a perfect background or in a studio, but should tell the story of you and your family!
