October and November might be busy season for portrait photographers, but on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, February is as good a time as any for a family portrait session! Especially when certain members of the family have been waiting 17 (!) years for this to happen! I was excited to photograph the Driggers family because they are SO MUCH FUN to be around... the blooming azaleas were just the icing on the cake!
Nell commented that 12 Oaks was a great spot because walking in the woods is something the Driggers fam loves to do in "real life." That's what I love about lifestyle portrait sessions... "real life" is exactly what I want to capture! Plus, it was perfect walking-in-the-woods weather. :)
There was plenty of tree-climbing, too, of course!
These lovely ladies made my job a breeze.
And the guys' antics made it even more fun!
These good-lookin' kids are super smart and talented, too!
So much fun family togetherness! We mixed it up with all kinds of combinations...
But I have to tell you, my favorite shots from this session are the ones of Mom and Dad. Aren't these two just the cutest?!
Thank you, Driggers Family! Let's do it again in a little less than seventeen years, okay?! ;)
