You. Guys. This last week and a half has been so, so good! Ever have one of those weeks, where you feel like you’re on top of the world and nothing can stop you! Well, that’s basically my week in a nutshell and I know who’s to thank.
You see, there has been this lens that I absolutely adore. I’ve been swooning over it. Renting it any chance I got. And at the beginning of last week, I was finally able to press the ‘Buy’ button and add it to my gear family. I waited ever so patiently for the next couple of days, for UPS to knock on my door. And on Friday morning, I received some happy mail! I couldn’t get the lens on my camera quick enough. I wanted so badly to photograph a sweet family, to try out the power of this lens. And so, the Muncy family (yep, related to this Muncy family!) graciously volunteered to stand in front of my lens and give me the honor of breaking in my new lens.
So, on Sunday evening, I spent about 40 minutes with them at their home, capturing life as they know. They have three beautiful kiddos who absolutely loved to be outside. And so I documented them in their element! If you haven’t had a lifestyle session with me yet, I like to base them around play. Sometimes I’ll throw out prompts to get honest reactions. So, at the beginning of their session, we spent a few minutes as a family, making sure to highlight their sweet smiles! Then it was playtime, and off they went to race their bikes and swing to their hearts content.
It was a perfect almost-summer evening for an outdoor lifestyle session! And in just 40 minutes, we were able to capture some super sweet memories for the whole family! Enjoy!
With summer quickly approaching, the weather will be ideal for outdoor lifestyle sessions. Think about the places that you love to go as a family! Maybe you like to hike, or maybe you have a favorite soccer field or ice cream shop. I love shooting lifestyle sessions in fun and unique places! If you’ve been looking for a Richmond family lifestyle photographer, drop me a note here so that we can plan a lifestyle session for you and your family! I’m currently booking into the summer!
