Oh my! This was the perfect family to finish off my 2014 season! This is Curt and Christie and their gorgeous daughters, Gabrielle and Sophia. I felt an immediate connection to them and was so pleased to finally meet them (thanks for being so flexible with the weather, you guys!).
We met at a beautiful property owned by friends of the Minor family…and even though it was a tad chilly, we still had a blast! (I must add a special shout out to Stephanie for helping with shade and smiles!)
When I asked Christie about some things their family enjoys doing together, she told me that they dedicate most of their time to the girl’s activity schedules. Gabrielle is an amazing golfer at Jackson High School and Sophia is an amazing dancer. She said that their family has 2 speeds…”full throttle and sleeping” :) It was obvious, in the time I spent with them, how much they enjoy being together and love each other so very much.
Live, Laugh, Love…a perfect way to describe this family! (This one makes me smile!)
We all LOVED this great spot on the property…it was perfectly woodsy, full of color and the light that afternoon was simply perfect!
Photographing dancers is one of my favorite things to do…they carry themselves so eloquently, take direction well and are completely comfortable in front of my camera…Sophia was all of these things and super fun too!
I adore your big brown eyes, Sophia…
You guys. I have to say it again…THAT LIGHT!!!!
Those who know Sophia will say, “This shot is totally her.”
With big sis Gabrielle in her senior year and going off to college next year, these sister pictures are especially special. This sweet time between sisters will be lasting memories for the both of them.
So, a few days after the Minor family session, we met up again for Gabby’s senior portrait session…those (amazing!!) photos will be on the blog soon! For now, a little teaser…some of her images from the family session. :) Gabby was such a great girl, SO fun to photograph, and sooooo gorgeous too!!
Christie is the photographer in her family, always documenting her girls. I was thrilled to help her be included in some photos this time.
Guess where Gabby will be off to next year? (You’re one lucky college, YSU!)
Minor family, I loved hanging out with you guys and really admire families like yours where supporting each other and LOVE is at the center of your family. Thank you so much for inviting me to document this wonderful time! (P.S. Can’t WAIT to share Gabby’s senior pics with you all!) Much love!
