I always enjoy meeting up with The Thompsons. I've known them for over two years now (I think) and little Luke is almost three. He's turned into quite the talker since I last saw him. The main reason for this session was to get some newborn photos of their latest addition: Evelyn Grey. Evie was just born three and a half weeks ago, so she's pretty new. Surprisingly, I was able to coax a smile or two out of her! (And a couple of yawns, but that's okay.) We met up at my house for some newborn pictures then traipsed into a slight meadow that I had just discovered within my subdivision.
Look at those smiles!
Those tall grasses, wildflowers and wild blackberries plus the gorgeous light of golden hour made this little meadow the perfect spot for some family portraits. Some photographers will only photograph during golden hour (the hour before the sun sets) and I've always understood why... the light is just so warm and glowy!
Luke had a really great time picking wild blackberries. I don't think he liked the way they tasted, so he fed a lot of them to Daddy.
Peek a boo, goofball! :)
As always, it was my pleasure taking your photos, Brian, Katie, Luke & Evie. I hope that you enjoy them!
