My first photo shoot with the Mitchell family was a few years ago for maternity portraits when mom, Jenny, was pregnant with their first child, Ella. I’ve been documenting this beautiful family through photographs ever since. They’re now a family of four with two adorable little girls.
We started in the studio, and Ella warmed up to the camera after a little bit with marshmallow rewards for every smile. (Thanks, Mom and Dad for that ingenious bribe! It worked like a charm!)
Ella soon became the marshmallow keeper and even rewarded her mom for being such a good smiler!
We recreated one of Ella’s six-month photos with the necklaces for now six-month old Haley.
And we took lots and lots of one on one photos with Mom and Dad. Look at those smiles and precious moments!
Finally, we took a short drive to a nearby park and snapped a few last photos with a very special prop. This LOVE sign, has been incorporated into photos with the Mitchell family since our very first photo shoot, and it will continue to be an ongoing theme (obviously!) for many more. Thanks, Ben and Jenny, for this wonderful time!
