collins:sibling session

You may remember this adorable sibling duo from a previous post! I mentioned that their session would go down as one of my all time favorites, and finally, I get to tell you why!

During our time together I began to chat with Connor and Olivia’s mom, only to discover that her and her husband have ties to the very small town where I was raised.  In fact, Connor and Olivia’s dad grew up there and went to school with my mom’s sister! He even pulled out his year book to show me images of my aunt when she was crowned Miss Hardee County! What a small world and how neat to have the opportunity to get to know this family on a more personal level. That’s actually one of my favorite parts about sessions, getting to know individuals and walking away as though we’ve been friends forever! What a blessing it is in my life!

Another reason that this session rocked: the kiddos are just too cute and were so incredibly well behaved! Seriously, they were like little models!  What a complete joy it was to work with this brother and sister duo and to see them interact with one another. They clearly have a unique and special bond! Just the way Olivia looked up to Connor with her eyes so many times during the session, so I also saw how she looks up to him as a big brother. Those little glimpses into the hearts and lives of my clients is priceless!

We started off the session in their backyard, which happens to be right by the river.  What a stunning view! Your home is always a great location to consider for your sessions! The children are often more at ease and the images have such meaning! This family also happened to have some cool furniture to use as well! I love how it matched their clothes!


Look at these precious individual shots! First, the handsome big brother and then the stunning princess! Be prepared, her eyes are going to melt your heart!



The expressions in the next 4 images are priceless and seem to capture both the innocence of childhood and Connor and Olivia’s unique personalities.



Of course, who could resist this darling feet picture!


While their backyard was stunning, I couldn’t resist the urge to soak up the natural light inside as well! It was a photographer’s dream! An entire wall of incredibly huge windows!




The color in their home was incredible and the perfect backdrop for capturing beautiful moments! I love the expressions in these next images and of course, the super cool chair Connor is sitting in!


This final image proves that children don’t always have to be smiling! It is one of my favorites and is so stunning! It takes my breath away each time I take a look at it. Can’t you just see this hanging up, as a canvas gallery wrap? What a piece of art that would be!!


Thank you Connor and Olivia for such a wonderful time! I’m saving some of your images from our second location as a surprise for your mom and dad when I post your gallery! Can’t wait to see you again soon.

Hope you enjoyed- don’t forget to post some “comment love!”

Sarah - Okay, I had to comment again…the super cool chair Connor is sitting in is a Louis Ghost Chair! I’m obsessed with those!!! We just talked about them in interior design last week.
