Family Fun with Countryside Comfort

I love family time.  It is the best warm and fuzzy feeling there is.  I am sure that you have seen these family photos of mine on many projects, but let me share the story.

It was a fall day in 2011.  My oldest son was a senior in high school.  This mamma bear was on a mission to have fun family photos taken before the birdie left the nest.  At this point, my boys were so tired of me sticking a camera in their face, so I was feeling “iffy” about how the day might go.

To my surprise, it was the most fun day our family had had in a long time.  We smiled, and laughed, and were just plain silly.  So, if you have seen some of the silly ones—this is why. We actually got in the car to head home, and they both commented about how much FUN that photo shoot was.

So, find yourself a FUN-loving photographer who will let your family be yourselves—-and capture those memories…..before the nest is empty.
