When I was heading back to Sioux Falls, SD for an ordering appointment with the O’Connor family I decided to take the opportunity to offer my services to some families that were interested in having me photograph their families and I got two more takers! Yay! (Which was all I had time in my schedule for anyway! … so it was perfect!)
I got a little nervous driving out to Sioux Falls because it was pouring rain for about an hour leading up to the state line. But once I arrived in town, the weather was beautiful and I couldn’t have been happier!
I was pleased to find the Knutson family ready to have their portraits taken. (Although Dawn says it’s impossible to talk the guys into getting portraits taken, which is why she had me come right to their farm.)
I guess it didn’t hurt any that her hubby got to pose with his giant Case IH tractor! 🙂 Nothing like a lot of horsepower to get a guy to smile!
I just love their little doggie too! She had all the personality of a big, tough dog in a compact body.
P.S. The one where their son is hugging the dog makes me laugh out loud every time I see it. I know it’s a little weird, but too funny!
I just loved this session! It is the kind of session that I really started my business to do. It’s shot all on-location with a story to tell.
The family had ordered these adorable baby chicks (and you might recognize Ruthie from her newborn portraits) and it was time for Ruthie’s 3 month portraits. So we were able to have some fun and get some great shots of the kids.
Personally, I love all those “blooper” type of shots. Don’t you? The one of the little brother putting the chicks on his older brother’s head is a favorite of mine… that and the one of the little guy thinking about dashing out of the group picture. Just priceless!
Anyhow, I hope you feel the same way… and if you do, give me a call and we can brainstorm a portrait concept that would make your family portraits even more personal and unique!
