Last Saturday was indeed a busy day. I usually don't schedule two shoots on the same day, but with the weather growing colder and the Holidays growing closer... the need to get family portraits done sooner rather than later is great! So, I met the "adorable" Stike family at Willow Valley on Saturday afternoon! I had mapped out all the pretty spots I wanted to shoot and was getting all set when a kindly older gentlemen politely told me I was "too close" to the golf course and would need to move.
Time to enact plan B! The Stikes arrived and we set up... in the parking lot! There was an amazing rock wall surrounding the parking lot and it worked perfectly as a plan B! We got going shooting family pics, but then... poor little Chloe Stike fell down in the aforementioned parking lot and got a huge goose egg right in the middle of her sweet little forehead!!
She was a trooper and carried on bravely as we enacted...plan C! A move to the nearby playground! This turned out to be just the ticket as the kids played and I was able to sneak around (well...sneaking with a large zoom lens isn't super sneaky...but I digress) and capture happy moments at play!
Now, thanks to the wonders of photoshop... I am happy to present a selection of the Stike Family photos (minus a large red boo-boo on little Chloe!!)
