Greg and Joy's Family Session | A Warm December Day at Creasey Mahan Nature Preserve
I absolutely loved working with Greg and Joy and their two sons, Kaleo and Kai. We got the dreamiest type of light for their session at Creasey Mahan Nature Preserve in Goshen, Kentucky - a thin layer of clouds over a setting sun which cast an warm, golden glow on my subjects, which makes the lighting part of my job easy! The nature preserve is so beautiful and photogenic even in winter. I actually prefer the brown and tan tones over the summer greens - easier to create beautiful skin tones!
On this particular day, we got lucky as it was warm and windy out even as the sun went down. This not an unusual thing for Kentucky in December, but it is always a welcome surprise at photo sessions!
It is truly wonderful to work with kids who cooperate without a second thought (in reality this rarely happens).
I like this photos because it looks like it could be Colorado mountains in the background
When shooting a family portrait session with me, you will get a mix of posed family photos (see photo on the left above) and the rest will be fun candid photos. The posed group photos will be taken within the first ten minutes of the session as I am aware of kids' short attention spans!
This was one of those families whose kids were so well behaved and truly cooperative throughout the entire shoot, and this made this session so much fun! To the Johnsons, I can't wait to work with you again to produce art with you again!
