Shara & Lance & Laney & Clara: Portraits

I make no ifs, ands, or buts about it: I’m a wedding photographer. I feel like couples are my specialty and my focus–what I do best! However, as I’ve posted before, I make exceptions when I get super sweet emails like, “I know you’ll probably never want to do this… and I know family pictures aren’t as fun as couples but… would you be up for taking our family portraits?” It was the same sorta thing with Melissa+Jody’s session. HA! When I’m begged sometimes, just sometimes, I say yes. I kid. I don’t need to be begged: I just need to know that I’ll LOVE the shoot. I couldn’t say no to my cousin Lance, his wife Shara and their two gorgeous girls Laney & Clara! We had fun last week taking these.

I’ve photographed this family before, way back in February 2008! I can’t believe it was that long ago. Check it out HERE if you want to: but no judging! My photo skills weren’t quite up to par back then. Ha! Thanks for hiring me regardless, you guys. ;) Shara+Lance have a gorgeous property and we decided the best place for the shoot was their farmhouse. I love the first shot of some details in Shara’s kitchen: she always has such great style–even though she objected to me taking these! I think it’s pretty. I hope you get a feel for this family’s fun personality as you look through the images! Have a great Wednesday!
