Thank you so much for being here! I have been wondering to myself for a while what my first blog post would be about. As we dived into the world of paid photography head-first, we have gravitated to Family Photography and that is turning out to be my current specialty. Having a family of our own has made us immediate experts in being able to work with other families. We understand children, or at least think we do. Ok, who understands children, really? We know how to deal with children. I felt that the first photo session I completed after I deciding to dive full-time into the world of photography would be the most appropriate as the first blog post! Meet the Kristenson family!
The Kristenson family are good friends of ours. We connected thru my wife’s MOPS group and since have had a lot of fun getting to know each other! They put on an AMAZING yearly fireworks show that quite honestly blows any home fireworks show out of the water and is just as good as the city shows. We are really looking forward to this year’s event coming soon. I’ve even had the opportunity to help out this year with some wiring and will be out there all day helping with setup the day of the event!
Since we completed this session, Crane’s Roost Park was still in the midst of it’s lengthy renovation. Since completion it is looking better than ever! We decided to shoot here because of the beautiful lake and awesome greenery. After scouting the location, I realized that a majority of the park was still closed! No worries though – the amount of real estate around the lake still provided a number of opportunities and I can’t wait to book my next session there now that everything has reopened!
Here are some of my favorite looks from my first ever “officially gettin’ paid” session!
Location: Crane’s Roost Park
