It’s been fairly quiet here on the blog since just before the holidays; typically I like to blog my sessions shortly after they happen, but once we get into September and October, the backlog starts to grow, and certain late-in-the-year shoots get put on hold until things slow down in January. The benefit of this is that today, this day where they are predicting “life-threatening” wind chill, we can look at some gorgeous photos from warmer, sunnier days with brilliant landscape and lovely people.
I’ve been photographing Patty and her family since the boys were little, but this is the first year that they’ve had a dog; Bode made it very clear from the beginning that the shoot was really all about him, and that the humans were just props. Beautiful props, but still. He managed to appear in over 60% of the images I took that day, whether he was supposed to or not. It’s all good, though, because look at him. He’s a model! And a well-loved member of this amazing family. So, without further ado, I present Bode’s family: Lance, Patty, Will, and Reid. Don’t they all seem lit from within?
