It was a very busy trip to Colorado this time, I had so many things planned, and one was to shoot my sister and her family! She told that she didn’t want super posed, stiff shots, I thought, well, good…. I don’t shoot like that anyhow. I asked her, “Your happiest memories of your family, what are you doing?” She said, “playing cards, gardening or eating.” So, she brought some of these things along for the shoot. I told her, “Just do that, relax, play some cards, just look good while doing it.” 😉 This was the perfect route for this family, I think. Her hubby, son and brother all are not the most interested or cooperative when it comes to photos.
Maria and her family have a beautiful garden in their backyard where they grow many different things like pumpkins, peas, and basil, all organic and non-gmo. I aspire to be like them. While we were shooting they decided to leave some sun flowers seeds, we’ll check for them next summer!
I think that this last shot of them is my absolute favorite, love the silly faces, the genuine happiness. <3 I miss them already. I so wish I could live there and see them often.
