Fraits Family {mini}

It’s always a pleasant surprise to have a group on the other side of my lens who feels comfortable just being themselves, interacting as if my lens is just ‘one of the guys’. It allows for genuine, natural photos… my favorite. That’s what happened when I spent my afternoon with the Fraits Family. These kids have a heart of gold. What a lucky daddy. Fraits Family 1 Fraits Family 2 Fraits Family 19 Fraits Family 18 Fraits Family 5 Fraits Family 6 Fraits Family 4 Fraits Family 3 Fraits Family 7 Fraits Family 8 Fraits Family 9Fraits Family 10 Fraits Family 11 Fraits Family 15 Fraits Family 14 Fraits Family 13 Fraits Family 12 Fraits Family 16Fraits Family 23 Fraits Family 20 Fraits Family 21 Fraits Family 22Fraits Family 24 Fraits Family 25 Fraits Family 26 Fraits Family 27 Fraits Family 28 Fraits Family 29Fraits Family 31 Fraits Family 32 Fraits Family 33 Fraits Family 30 Fraits Family 34

Jody & Ava

It’s always a pleasure photographing parents with their children. There’s a love and a happiness that you couldn’t pose if you tried. It’s natural and real…and it makes my job super easy. This natural connection is exactly what I see through my lens when I photograph Jody and Ava. There’s never a dull moment with these two gals. They play off of each other in a way that keeps me chuckling behind my camera.  This particular shoot involved a “nature walk” (as Jody calls it), bugs, humidity, a big fat rabbit, blue lights (ahem), CrossKeys Vineyard (unrelated to the blue lights), and a juicy burger from Jack Brown’s Single Wide. Pretty much an awesome Sunday evening.
