Family Session - The Fernandez Family at home

I had the pleasure of meeting the Fernandez family about a year ago when we moved into the same neighborhood where they live!  This sweet family seems to always be smiling and willing to lend a helping hand and great advice.

The Fernandi (thanks to another neighbor for the fun plural version of their last name, haha!) like to update their family photos, and the time had arrived, so we went for it!  It's always fun to me to see things through my lens that might not appear the same to eyes that look at the same spots every day... we settled into this vignette in their own back yard.  The sunlight shone in perfectly through the treetops, and the branches created a beautiful canopy over top of where they sat down on their lush grass.

Naturally, we had to bring in everyone's favorite best friend, Poncho, to join in the family photos.  He's a family member, too!!  And -- SUCH a sweet boy!!

The kiddos with Poncho... he even smiled for the camera with them.  Good boy!

I absolutely love it when clients want individual portraits.  These three did great!

Last but certainly not least, I couldn't help but add this image into the mix.  We'll close things out here with the "almost" kiss... this timing happened by chance, and it's just so sweet!
