Powell Wy Family Photographer | A Sunday Breakfast at Home

Sometimes it’s the ordinary moment, one you live every day, that turns into a cherished memory.  A family photo session doesn’t necessarily involve a pretty field, blanket, and coordinated outfits.  I  asked a friend if she would volunteer her family for a little project of mine, and she bravely invited me into her home to photograph their Sunday breakfast.

We kept it simple, pancakes and bacon.  Pajamas, bed head, a cuddle on the couch.  These things are every day occurrences that I was able to make into lasting memories.  Big brother often helps the little guy out of the crib right after he and Mom spend a few minutes watching cartoons and chatting while everyone else sleeps.  Dad got to sleep in a little bit, so I hung out in the kitchen while Mom and the boys whipped up some pancakes.  After the session, Mom mentioned that I was there to witness the first pancake flip for both boys!  Big bro handled that spatula like a pro.

With breakfast cooked, it was time to wake Dad up (as usual) by a shout from the stairs, and then it was family time.  Little boys always love their Mommy, but it feels so special to see the bonds with their Dad.  They don’t stay little for long, so I’m glad I was there to save that moment for them.  After lots of laughs, a few strawberry stems ingested, and many funny faces made, it was time for Jenga and some books.  I love how every family turns an event that occurs in most homes into a comedy routine.  And yes, the 2-year-old knows what the fox says 😉  A pillow fight rounded out the morning.  Everyone had a blast tossing pillows at each other.  I think…the little guy wasn’t quite sure what was going on!

It was a relaxed photo session where I was able to just sit back and let the family be themselves.  We are already making plans to capture the everyday beauty of their backyard when Spring decides to visit Wyoming.  I’m excited to see what fun activities they do in their own backyard and to document the everyday beauty!

Kalli |RHS Senior 2014 |Wyoming Senior Photographer

Every once in a while every thing that can go right with a session, does.  Even the unfortunate wildfires worked in our favor the day that Kalli and her mom made the trek from Rawlins to have her Senior Pictures taken.  Everything, from the temperature of the day, to Kalli’s natural beauty, to the fun and relaxed atmosphere on her Grandparents’ land worked just perfectly together.  Perfectly.  I couldn’t have asked for a better session and am absolutely in love with how all the images turned out.  Kalli, her mom, and I were able to mesh our visions into one in order to showcase Kalli’s senior year. powell wy senior portrait photographer_0001 powell wy senior portrait photographer_0002 powell wy senior portrait photographer_0003 powell wy senior portrait photographer_0004 powell wy senior portrait photographer_0005 powell wy senior portrait photographer_0006 powell wy senior portrait photographer_0007 powell wy senior portrait photographer_0008 powell wy senior portrait photographer_0009And, to make the session even sweeter, we were able to recreate a  portrait taken when these cousins were small enough to see through the windshield.

Brandi, 2014 Senior | Northern WY Senior Photographer

This year, I decided to start a Senior Rep program, focusing on Powell High School Seniors.  Brandi was one of the first to contact me.  I was excited to work with this natural beauty.  She’s one of those lucky girls that looked beautiful in whatever location I put her in.  Brandi brought her boyfriend along and he did a great job of helping me get some natural smiles out of his girl!
