I’m so excited about this family shoot I did just a few weeks ago at Lone Hawk Farm. The Montgomery Family have been clients and friends of mine for a couple of years now and their twin boys Alex & Max are always such a hoot to photograph! I mean look at them! How handsome can you get?? I knew that Heather was leaning towards dressing everyone up a little bit more than their usual for this shoot so I thought they were the perfect family to share my Style Guide with. Although I’m not quite finished with it, I am woking on creating style inspiration and tips for my families to take into consideration when choosing outfits! So they were my “test subjects”! And look what happened!!
Living in Colorado we are used to being super casual for pretty much any event! Heck, some of my Grooms even wear jeans for their weddings so that just goes to show you we are a casual state and that’s ok! BUT, for a photo shoot that you are maybe going to do once a year, maybe every other doesn’t it make sense to go all out and dress it up a bit! It makes your photos feel all that much more special when you take it up a notch! The Montgomery’s got so many amazing compliments when they posted their pics and people were even asking what was the special occasion? That goes to show you it puts extra value in your photos and people notice when you take extra care in selection of outfits!
Now since these four dressed to impress they are covering the pages of my Style Guide that I will now be sending to future clients! I’m hoping to inspire my future clients to also take special care in deciding what to wear and to dress to impress!
At the end of the day, though, the locations my clients choose and the outfits they select won’t matter nearly as much as the memories they make together. Their future memories are the most important thing to me, and I want their sessions to be a time for them to just be themselves and enjoy it. Have fun together. Laugh a lot. And I’ll take care of the rest!
Thank you Aaron, Heather, Max, Alex and Lizzie for being so awesome and I already know you LOVE your pics. . . yay!! Hope to see you all again soon! You can check out their last sessions here and here!
