It snowed today, and I think we need some warm weather on this blog. This beautiful gender reveal and family portrait photo shoot and Lake Ann was from summer. I saved these pictures for so long! I didn’t want to post them too early and ruin the surprise for everyone. I was so excited when I got Nicoelle’s email, I did a little happy dance in my office. One of the best parts of bring a photographer is being the first to know a special secret and to celebrate it like this.
We had so much fun at this shoot, playing with balloons, walking on the beach, exploring the woods around the lake. When you have a busy child that likes to be on the move and explore during photos, I’ve found that a place like this with wide open spaces where we can all walk around works well. Taking pictures at each spot and moving on to the next gives variety to the shoot, but also introduces your toddler to new things, to keep them interested during the shoot.
