Meet the Oborn family! This is the first time that I have photographed their entire family, but they are familiar faces to me and I love them all oh-so-much!
When Melinda first asked me to photograph their family we bounced around a few location ideas. As soon as I mentioned that one of my personal favorites was Garden Park Ward she smiled and said “Yes! Let’s go there!” I love how classic this location is and it fits this family so perfectly! Melinda had her bridal photos taken there, so it had so much meaning to her. She loved telling her girls about all the spots in the park that she had her photos taken. And that is one of the things that I love about this location…even though people have been using this spot for photographs for many years, it never gets old! It’s a classic!
I was so excited to take their family photos this year because I knew that it would be so much fun spending time with some of my favorite people! And can we just talk about their outfits for one minute? I love the blues that they chose – blue is always my favorite color for any photo session! And that pop of bright green and touch of pink just gave me all the heart eyes! The inspiration for everything all started with that one green tie and I love how everything just came together! So simple but beautiful! I know that some moms really aren’t sure where to start with pulling outfits together, and my first suggestion is always to start with one piece that you absolutely love and go from there! You can see here how perfectly Melinda pulled her family’s outfits together by doing just that! She did an amazing job!
But really, more than what you wear. It’s about being together as a family.
And taking a little time to cherish each other while creating a tangible memory for the future. It’s the reason I love being a photographer! I feel like I’m giving you so much more than just a few pretty photographs.
