That Time of the Year Already???

Every Fall, we get our family photos taken by the very talented people at PhotoCaptiva. I cannot stress this enough, but there's one thing having "nice" photos taken and another having "professional" photos taken. Not to sound snooty or uppity, but the proper equipment, knowing about lighting, angles, and composition  really make a difference.  It's always really interesting to see someone else's vision of how a frame should be filled or how to work with spaces. It's always fascinating to see someone else's perspective.

We have our family photo shoot once a year. Hubby goes along with it because he knows it makes me happy. I just love having those special moments captured. Little One isn't going to be little for much longer and I'd like to do this while she still lets us!
The photos were all taken on our property. We did the photo shoot in the "bush" to the left of our barn.

I can't believe how Little One has grown up so much in a year! Check out her face in the last photo. What a goofball! She's always trying to get people to laugh. Hmmm...I wonder if I've got a future class clown in the making? She's definitely an entertainer!

Love the photos Chrissy! They are so precious to have, and as you say, Little One is growing up rapidly.

I always wanted professional pictures done of my family (like my parents and brother), but it's never happened.
And I totally want prof photos of MY family but my husband thinks I take fine pictures, but its just not the same.... plus i'm not in them.

I love Photo Captiva's style too.

Color me jealous of your photos and your property!
