Danbom Family Pictures

I was asked about a month ago if I'd be willing to take pictures for a family that I'm friends with.  Of course I jumped at the chance!  2 month old Kylie.  1 1/2 year old, blue eyed Collin.  Their dad is a former classmate of mine, and my bff's cousin; and mom is a cousin of another friend of mine.  All the connections!

So they needed family pictures taken to use for their Christmas card.  And being that 1) Taryn liked pictures I've posted on facebook; 2) I currently am not charging (I can expand more on that later); and 3) well I don't know if there's a 3, maybe that I was flexible with scheduling and worked with what worked for them.

So without further ado, let me introduce you to the Danbom's...

We were at this really cool old farm house with a barn, tractor, oak trees, etc.  The house used to belong to a couple great (great?) uncle's of Paul's.

Check out the texture of the porch.  This family was troopers!  The stairs were a bit sketchy, but they climbed right up there.
I really like this shot.  One thing I wish I had done though, not cut off Collin's feet and hand.  Live and learn...

A lollipop was introduced into the mix to help keep Collin occupied and less restless.  It worked for the most part.

Someone had a momentary cry fest.  But don't worry, it was short lived.

Trying a unique technique with Photoshop.  What do you think?

At the end of the shoot, someone found a pile of dirt.  And, well, it was just too intriguing to pass up.  I bet he could have played in it for hours.

The beautiful family...

I had so much fun taking Paul, Taryn, Collin and Kylie's pictures.  I can't wait for the opportunity to do it again and to watch these beautiful children grow.  Thanks Taryn for taking a chance with me.
