Katherine and I shoot mostly weddings these days, but every once in a while we get to take a brief hiatus from the creative space of wedding photography and focus on the smaller, and often times even more intimate, setting of a family photo session. I love these sessions! It's an entirely different approach to the creative side of image making; it's generally a much more relaxed environment; and you get to see the dynamics of one of the highest forms of love, that which exists between a parent and a child, play out right before your eyes. It's refreshing and it's inspiring. The Wiedenmeyers have been friends of ours for a long time, and it was a pleasure to take part in the celebration of their sweet little girl's first (or second, depending on when you start counting) birthday!
