I have been photographing the Bechtel family for about 3 years now and I'm telling you, it gets better every time. Jen and Chris are such a wonderful couple, but truly, their boys steal the show! We met a couple of weeks ago at The Hill School to shoot our annual fall session, and it was crazy fun from the very first photo!
I love to come into my sessions having done some prep work. I love to browse magazines, or check out Pinterest for inspiration in lighting, posing, and fresh ideas. It helps me to have a game plan going into my sessions, and assure that I get all the family combinations needed. However, most times, the session will take on a life of its own, bringing out images and poses that were even better than planned.
Below are some of those wonderful surprises, mixed in with those prepped for. Either way, with a family this wonderful, the portraits are going to be fantastic!
Jen and Chris, once again, you have brightened my autumn with your family. It's so clear during our time together how much you love your boys and how proud you are of them. And what's more, it's always so clear to me during our time together the reasons why. They are beyond adorable, beyond fun, and beyond precious!
Thanks for the awesome time!
