When Anna told me she lived on a property with rolling hills, a garden, sheep, ducks and chickens, I instantly knew it would give us a great variety to capture her family in their own element; where they feel, well… at home 🙂 .
The Nice family is every photographer’s dream family to work with; and I am not saying it just to be polite. There is that certain blissful tranquility that is an integral part of this family and I am so thankful to have had a chance to capture that!
One of the things that Anna told me as she was presenting her vision for the session was “I had envisioned our kids running through the fields”. This vision stuck in my mind and I was on a mission to make it happen!
I could certainly NOT pass on the great opportunity to photograph the family with the livestock!! The more the merrier! (and more messy sometimes 😉 )
Where there are chickens, there must be eggs! Might be scrambled when in hands of a toddler! Elowen certainly doesn’t mind 😉
Every farm must have a kitty! Judging by his expression, Leverette must have found something gross on this kitty’s fur.
The entire family enjoys the beautiful garden! Leverette, Leah and Magnolia love crunching on juicy carrots.
Anna enjoys her beautiful peonies that just came to bloom, although I bet she enjoys hugs even more! 🙂
One of the reasons that I love photographing so much, is seeing this kind of expression on people’s faces; love, appreciation and gratitude for the family they have.
The funny moments captures are definite keepers! Just look at Elowen’s expression! It cracked me up every time I see this photograph 🙂
To finish off this experience, I suggested firing off the water sprinkler and I must say that my idea was very popular; especially with the children!
Based on this capture though, I believe Anna enjoyed herself a lot! Timothy liked watching from the distance. Good enough! 😉
It’s a wrap at the Nice’s family farm! It was a blast! Thank you for having me, Anna, Timothy, Leah, Sophie, Magnolia, Leverette and Elowen!
