Family Portraits by: Ashley McKenzie

One of the things I love most about family portraits is the chase!  When photographing children & babies you have to pay close attention to those sweet moments that happen so quickly.  It's nearly impossible to ask a two year old to sit still for more than half a second which leaves you with the wonderful option of trying to anticipate where they'll be next, and wondering what will make them smile.  Being ready with your camera up to your eye and your finger on the shutter is vital because if you look away for even a second that sweet smile, or sparkle in the eye could be gone.  These three certainly kept me on my toes, but I truly enjoyed every minute of it!  This is part of what makes my job fun and creative.  Just look at those faces!  

Thank you to Kim & Jeff for choosing me to capture these moments!  I had fun working with all of you.  I think there's a great christmas card in here somewhere.
