Family Portraits in the Barn

The weather forecast did not look good so we planned to do family portraits in the barn using my Quantum flash with softbox.  After arriving, there was a bit of light left so we rushed to do a few outside portraits.  You should have seen how fast the boys were moving to get the straw bale in place to get this portrait that faced their home!  It was getting dark as you can tell by the lights that came on in the front of their home in the background of the image below.  This turned out to be their favorite portrait. Someone mentioned doing a walking image so we hurried to get that done and the dogs cooperated nicely by walking with their masters down the path. The two outside portraits and the ones from the barn are the clients' favorites and I have included them for you to enjoy!

Autumn Portraits of the Witmer Family

If you recall, we photographed this family of six in the summer.  The first image below was taken on our property to the west of our pond.  There is a large willow tree that is visible in the background of the image which frames the portrait. I had been eyeing this beautiful location that is en route to our studio and the owner was kind to let us use his property as a backdrop on the last two images.   I have included their favorites from their session for you to enjoy!

It's a girl and her name is Emmy Lou!

We named her after her grandmother Emmy Lou.  The pictures below depict the first few hours after her birth.  If you look closely, you will notice her hair is still wet from the afterbirth.  A good friend of mine told me, there's not too many things cuter than a baby donkey!  And I think you will agree after you view the images that I have included from her newborn photo session.  Enjoy!
