I don't photograph families very often but when I do, they're for the best reasons.
Lindsey and I started talking about her families portrait session over eight months ago! Does that make us best friends yet, Lindsey? ;) The Formanek Family won a gift basket with a free portrait session in it and the rest is history!
When we first started planning, the outside was a literal frozen tundra. Jack Frost had really turn on his chilly charm and I think we all agreed that waiting until the snow melted would be the best opportunity for family portraits. Boy, were we right or what?! The spring Midwestern grasses has reached high and mighty, the trees had filled out to their most beautiful & full potential. Even the gnats were in abundance ;) Yea, there's no getting around that one- sorry guys! Regardless, I think the Formanek family's portraits turned out rather sweet, if I do say so myself! Call me biased, but I think I have the best clients ever.
Check out some of my favorites from the Formanek family's portrait session!
Gosh, I just adore these two kiddos! They were so funny and full of energy!
Also, they are professional wish-dreamers.
Of course I had to sneak some of just Mom and Dad together!
If you've been within 50 feet of a kiddo under 12 at a wedding then you probably know what he's doing!
