If you’re lucky enough to have your family nearby, you’re lucky enough.
Getting to meet the Pienta clan this summer was a treat. I’ve been shooting for Joey and Mandi for nearly two years now and I recently got to meet Joey’s side of the family 😀 I have a feeling we’ll need to update this extended family photo next year 😉
Mary Kay asked for a special photo of she and Mandi together, noting the last photo she had of the two of them, was from Mandi and Joey’s wedding! Happy to oblige, lovelies! Love Mary Kay’s floral top.The Pienta ladies ❤
Baby Ben wasn’t really feeling posed photos, but he was TOTALLY down for throwing rocks into the creek! Karen and Joe climbed to the creek edge and the three of them played. I shot for a bit on a bridge above the creek….but quickly realized that I wanted to be down in the watery action! I love Karen’s face, and that Joe is collecting more rocks for Ben. They have set foundations for such a loving family. Totally worth a couple splashes. I enjoy shooting posed portraits, but I also really love that everyone was totally cool with abandoning the idea and just taking time to play together. Interested in booking your own extended family session? Email me today at email@example.com ; I’m currently taking bookings for September! Fall in our area is beautiful, but in my humble opinion, there is *nothing* like summer. The greens, the life, the warmth. I’m having my own family photos taken later this month 😉 Summer fans unite!
