We’re taking a trip down memory lane with this blog post featuring photos of my friends the Petersons! We photographed the family back in 2011 and Sophie has grown up a bit since then and now has a sister. You can see her sister being chased by a dinosaur here.
We photographed the family in Provo’s orchard near the Provo Hospital. It is part of the hospital’s grounds and I have used the location repeatedly because it is such a fun location and the price is pretty affordable. We were there in October as the apples had already fallen… so we recreated Sophie picking an apple.
No family session is complete without individual portraits. We photographed mom and dad and then little Sophie. It’s always important to get the individual shots for prints, albums, and memories. And years later, you can look back and wish you looked that young or that athletic.
Sophie had just learned to stand… so we took a photo of her standing with dad to the side for support in case she fell down.
We then finished up with couple portraits of mom and dad. I still keep the posing simple. If people look and feel natural they look their best in front of the camera.
I should create more black and white versions of my photography. Black and white is a dying art it seems.
And last photo of the shoot is Airplane Sophie.
