One of my favorite things about portrait sessions is being able to get a little creative and think outside of the box. When Sarah contacted me this year for their annual photo’s she was a little stuck on what to do. She sent me over some sample of images that she liked and as I was looking at them, I had a vision… we started up a pinterest board and started sharing images that inspired us both… between that and a few phone calls we came up with an amazing idea; a carnival themed edgy family session; if anyone could pull it off, this family could. Sarah started right away on costume design and made most of these clothes; her vision was dead on with mine (I love it when that happens). The family came together and pulled off one of my favorite shoots ever. We wanted dark, moody, and edgy and I think we nailed it. LOVE these images so much.
