I am not a cold weather girl. I would be more than happy to load up on cals in the fall and just hibernate through the winter. Give me sun and a beach and I am a happy camper.
That being said, there is just something so magical about snow. The way the trees look after a fresh snowfall when the sun glimmers through their branches. The crisp, cool air just before the snow starts to fall. The warm, fuzzies of sipping from your favorite mug filled with hot cocoa after an afternoon of snow ball fights and snowman building. It's just special.
So when this beautiful family contacted me in December last year about a family session, I was thrilled! I shared with them my vision of a gorgeous snowscape background surrounding their warm and loving family and they were over the moon excited too! We couldn't wait to get out in the snow and capture some of the magic!
Of course, one thing after another came up for them and before we knew it, it was April. I made a new suggestion of some sweet spring portraits, but they were still pretty set on the snow session. Well, I guess there was an upside to this crazy winter! We got one last good snowfall on a relatively warm weekend! We quickly worked out a time and I came out to their beautiful home in Chester, NJ and we captured the moment!
I ADORE working with this family. The twins are just the sweetest, cutest little girls in the world and mom and dad are so kind and caring. And did I mention fun? This family knows how to have fun! Oh and that pup? He is just the perfect little fur brother! So great with the girls and a total sweetie himself!
It was such a pleasure to just get to spend the evening with them, wandering around their yard and capturing memories. We got to have a snowball fight, show off some of pup's tricks, and even play with glitter! Definitely an awesome evening.
