These two cuties were a joy to spend time with! They are just so adorable, and incredibly well behaved! I love how siblings act together in front of a camera–they are usually a little shy at first, but then they find their comfort zone and the sillies come out 🙂
All these photos were taken at the Succop Conservancy, which has beautiful grounds and a variety of places to go. Some of my favorite areas are the back courtyard (shown directly below), the barn, and the back yard pond. The herb garden is lovely too, with the large willow tree and lots of flowers planted in the beds. Just add children who love to be outside and you’ve got yourself some wonderful family portraits!
This is one of my personal favorite areas to shoot–the back brick courtyard. There’s something so beautifully historic and charming about it. It’s the perfect backdrop for any kind of portrait! I’ve used it for weddings, engagements, and families, and I’m always happy with the results. Plus it has the brick half-wall which is really nice to do some poses while seated, giving you even more variety 🙂
There’s nothing more beautiful than an sincere hug from a child! I asked them to hug each other, and they squeezed so tight, it was adorable! You can see that brothers and sisters can be friends and DO get a long…at least sometimes! 🙂
Loved this last one too, one of their mom’s requests–it looks so sweet, I remember them giggling as I was setting up the shot. I hope that’s how they always stay–ready to play, laughing all the time, joking with each other. The bonds of brother and sister here are strong and invaluable, and I’m so honored I could capture it for this beautiful family!
