the Marshalls: a Family session at Haverford College

Family

Two Sundays ago I met up with the Marshall family at Haverford College for a photoshoot. We had Sarah and Brad and their three children: Caitlin (14), Adam (4), and Amelia (2.5). They had won the session at an auction in February at the Gladwyne Montessori School, where Adam is a student. Amelia’s sweet little springtime outfit was handmade by one of Brad’s realtives (I think it was his mother…).

We missed out on the sunny weather that we saw a few days prior but the overcast skies made for perfect soft lighting at the gorgeous school grounds.

We started out around the pond and the old weathered shack right there.





I love Adam’s expression and pose in the picture of all three.


We then wandered over to a little spot with daffodils and little yellow flowers. We got some of just the girls.


And just the guys.


Our last spot was on a little path on the far side of the pond. It was nice and secluded and just perfect for some relaxed family shots.




Once Amelia had had enough, Brad and Sarah took a second at the end for a few shots together.


And I had to include this one of Adam, who was full of smiles and energy the whole time!


What a beautiful family! Thanks again; I hope you had a great time!

Stumped, huh? How on earth do you reconcile all of those personalities into pleasing pictures? Well, it's not so hard.Sometime in the 90s it was decided that people should all wear white shirts and jeans or khakis for family pictures. Set yourself free from that idea right now! You don't want to dress all in the same exact outfit and look like the Von Trapp family or a soccer team. You're each unique individuals so wouldn't you want that to come out in your pictures?
