A while ago Katy contacted me about doing family portraits. As time got closer for the date of the shoot we realized that the weather was going to play a key element in where we took the pictures. We were planning on outside, but with the fall being much colder than it has in the past few years, we had to resort to taking the pictures at their home so everyone could stay warm in between pictures. Not to mention they just moved here from the west coast so their children weren’t used to this kind of weather! It was a very bitter fall day but their backyard proved to be a great place for pictures! She had sent me pictures via her cell phone ahead of time, but when I got there I was pleasantly surprised. With an old wooden railing, big field, tall grass and old trees it was a photographer’s dream! Her and her husband sure do have their hands full with their four energetic children and it was a fun time photographing this great young family!
