I’d like to introduce you to the W Family! What a beautiful family! When this family reached out to me, they told me that they were looking for updated family portraits from here in the midwest as they had relocated here from California. All their previous family portraits were by the beach. I’m not going to lie, I was a little intimidated at first because how could I possibly compete with those stunning beach photos. But then I thought, I think there’s something to be said for a beautiful, midwest rural setting at sunset as the light sparkles through the trees and creates that stunning warm glow in family portraits here in the Quad Cities. So that’s what we delivered, and I couldn’t be happier with how this session turned out.
When this family stepped out of the car, I was super excited! They were all dressed perfectly and looked incredible. I absolutely love the colors they selected as it worked really well with the location. The weather was perfect that evening, and they were all such nice people to work with. This made for a really relaxed, laid back session.
A couple weeks after their session, I went to their home for their gallery viewing. This is where they saw their images from their session set to a slideshow. We worked together to narrow down their favorite images and designed a couple walls in their new home to display their portraits proudly. We also designed a set of the mini accordion albums along with a few other goodies. They were such a fun family to work with, and I’m so glad I had the opportunity to work with them and get to know them.
Please check out some of my favorites from this family session.
