Are you ready to turn into a puddle of mush? Because this shoot, captured by Marta Locklear, will likely have that effect. One adorable family, and miles and miles of wide open fields and it seems as if you’ve got yourself quite the incredible shoot. And if you like this compliation of photos, you might want to check out the gallery, because there’s all sorts of squishy baby goodness within it.
From the Mother… After having both our maternity and newborn sessions done with Marta Locklear I knew I wanted her to capture our family around my daughter Lorelei’s half year mark, since babies hit so many milestones in that short time. We had originally planned to have our session at 6 months but the unpredictable spring weather in Virginia had other plans for us. On one of our rescheduled dates the clouds finally broke and the weather that day was nothing short of dreamy. Blue skies, warm sunshine and my family in a field. Eeek! My vision was simple: lots of sunny light, pretty pastel tones, a big tree, rolling hills and my adored family. Not only do we look forward to the images but the experience of our sessions.
Marta executed my vision beautifully! She has the rare ability to capture exactly what you’re feeling through her lens and gives you room to enjoy the moments. The day the film scans came in I was without words. Seeing my family on film, the pastel tones, the grassy field and the smile of my daughter melted me. I made a call to Marta and gushed with her over the scans thanking her again maybe one too many times. I truly treasure these images and Marta for bringing my vision to fruition!
