Logan is has the best time when we take pictures. She scares me, I scream, she laughs. It’s a formula we had this year for her mini and portrait session. I have to say it worked beautifully! In addition to scaring me Logan was also having the best time throwing leaves in the air. Perfect fall portrait accessory! I always look forward to seeing Logan and her family. I probably spend as much time chatting with Mom as I do taking photos. Hanging out with cool families is reason #453 why I love my job. Thanks for choosing me to take your photos, guys!
I love these photos because I love this family! Ada is my kids’ bud. There was a time when all my son said was “Ada hit me” (even though she didn’t). There was also a time when Ada always talking about the time my son, Max, gave her way too aggressive of a hug (which did happen). Mandy is an amazingly talented graphic designer. She does all the design work for my wedding photography business called M.Studios and does amazing letterpress wedding invitations and birth announcments. Check out her web site or etsy shop! I also can’t wait to share the new logo she did for me that has inspired a whole new look for Melissa Lacouture Photography!
The day after this family portrait I got a Facebook message from a friend saying that she saw me chasing geese in the park with a two year old. For those of you who have done a portrait session at Roger Williams with me will know how funny this is. I tell everyone that I am a little scared of those geese (they are kind of mean). On the other hand Ryan was not scared of them at all. As a matter of fact chasing those crazy birds was what made him happiest at our portrait session. So chasing birds is what we did! Mom was very pregnant at the session and since we have taken these photos they have a welcomed a new baby to the family! Congrats on the new addition!! You might see the new little one on this blog soon…
I’ve had the absolute pleasure of photographing this little lady a couple of times now. Every time she has come to do photos she has brought her little dolly, Sasha. It makes sense that Sasha was included in all the family photos. At this point she is just that – one of the family. It’s nice when people decide to include personal elements like this in the photos session. So we had two parents, two dogs, one toddler and a doll. Somehow it all worked out and we got photos of everyone! It was that crazy Sasha who wouldn’t sit still for most of the photos. Such a diva.
I had the pleasure of meeting this family a couple of years ago at one of my mini shoots. These kids were adorable back then and they are even cuter now. I remember loving Mac’s hair at the mini. I was so happy that he was still rockin’ the do. I am a sucker for little boys with longer styled hair. It’s always the cutest. We had a great time taking photos at Colt State Park. Avery was the queen the poses. If her clothes came in my size I would have asked her where she bought them and gone to get the same outfit for myself. Autumn leaves, great light and great people can only equal a successful family portrait session.
