The Ray Family

Once again, I’m behind, so ignore the fact that these were shot back in October, lol.

How I ended up working with this wonderful little family, I must give you a little insight.  I was working with a bride for her wedding next year and she wanted to book one of my fall mini sessions as an engagement, which was absolutely perfect.  I love working with my brides and grooms before their wedding day 🙂  And so she referred me over to her sister (Jenn, below) and they booked a session for their family the very same day as the engagement.  Score!

I was in Kentucky to visit my family, so I went over to a family home of theirs where there was tons of open space, a barn (two actually, lol), and just great scenery all around.  I got to work with Jenn and her wonderful family for a short period of time, but what we did get was great 🙂

They were bribing this little girl with Cheerios the whole time.  It worked for the most part!  Haha

My favorite shot of the whole session!  We got a great frame and our little Cheerio eater was looking right at me (well….at her aunt Jess, but who cares! lol)

This kid was a natural in front of the camera.  The shots of just him that I got took less than two minutes.  Perfect!

She wanted down so badly.  Once she did get down…she was GONE.  No pictures for her today, haha.

I did really enjoy this time I did get with William & Jennifer.  It was time away from the kids and you could really tell how much in love these two are.  It’s not very often that you get to photograph parents without their children.  You get to really see how much they care for each other.  I just love it 🙂

After we gave up on trying to get more family group shots, I just followed little Kylie (I hope I spelled it right!) around and got this little gem.  I’ve learned over the years that you just have to let kids be kids and usually, catching them doing what they do best, makes the best photographs 🙂

Once again, I loved working with this little family and hope that they feel the same 🙂
