This week as I’ve been editing through these summer sunset field portraits I was also working through creating a baby book for my daughter. I kind of fell into a pattern of when one of my kids turns 3 I create a baby album for them from birth through 3 years old highlighting the big age achievements as a baby and a toddler and preschooler. And it struck me that this is an album I want to keep forever, to give to my daughter one day to show her daughter what life was like when she was a baby.
And though not every one of my family portraits I take will be put into an heirloom piece, there are pictures from each of these sessions that will be extra meaningful, that will be extra treasured years down the road when you look back on this time in your life. There’s a reason we treasure pictures so much – they tell our story. And our story is SO worth sharing and remembering and treasuring for generations from now!
I got to capture the Kiehn family this summer with Kyle’s in-laws which was so special because just last winter I got to capture Leslie’s side of the family in the Colorado snow! I love that they have big family pictures from both sides of their family that they get to cherish and share for years on end! It was an honor to be able to capture them again this summer and such a joy to meet so many of their family!
We had the perfect evening out in Parker, CO with a beautiful open field to capture the sunset (in case you haven’t figured it out by now, sunsets are my fave!). The light is glowy and soft and warm and makes for the perfect atmosphere to capture sweet memories for my clients! And Leslie did such a great job coordinating outfits for her whole crew (the perfect summer colors)! Scroll down to see some of my favorites from their little session!
These summer sunset field portraits were so fun! If you enjoyed these portraits, be sure to check this blog post, as well!
