summer evening family portraits

i love word-of-mouth referrals, so when two of my past photo clients recommended me to a co-worker, i was happy to meet these sweet kids on beautiful summer evening.

needless to say, it took a little while for this guy to warm up to me :)

but this pretty girl quickly became comfortable and had a great time coming up with different poses!

love autumn lakes and this gorgeous spot (though i could do without dave mirra's new house being built in the background there.)
i also had fun with some of the lightroom presets in editing this batch--the black and white and faded color ones are just awesome.
so once we got this little guy smiling, he reminded me a lot of alan at his age--blond curls and all.
then we made our way over to the bridge for some more shots...

and got a couple of great smiles from the little man!

and when we all worked together (mom, dad and sister) we were able to get a few of both kids together!
so cute and so fun to work with them :)
