I've photographed this family since Casen had his first birthday, and now they're preparing for a little girl! Can you believe how gorgeous Melissa is? James and I were talking about how good she looks pregnant; she's a tiny woman to begin with so her baby bump is ALL baby!
We had rescheduled our session once because of the smoke, and thought our new date would be much better. Then multiple fires flared up last week. We went with it and the session ended up being a good day - warm, not too sunny, slight breeze - pretty perfect except for the smoke. And yes, you can see the smoke in the background, but it does add an element that we can't duplicate on our own.
Melissa's parents came with us to help with Casen, and you can tell how much they adore him and how much he adores them! I loved watching the relationship between all of them, you can tell they really like each other. Casen wasn't too into the photos, he was ready for a snack (I seem to remember he loved food at our last 2 sessions). Grandma and Grandpa were ready to take him for a treat once we were done!
Thank you Melissa and James for choosing me to photograph your family!
