Family Photos with a Nerdy Twist

It’s busy season here in photographer land, and I’m especially excited to share this family portrait session with you. As much as I love getting to know new people through portrait sessions, it’s a special treat when I get to photograph people I already know to be absolutely awesome humans, and that’s the case with this session. Gaela is one of my favorite colleagues ever (in my “other” career) and it was such a pleasure getting her family in front of my camera!

Max especially enjoyed the leaf fight—so much fun! :)

I’ll never get tired of a walk in the woods, but this family also wanted to incorporate another type of fun, which called for an outfit change. Let’s get nerdy! (Did I mention that Gaela and Jeff are both psychologists?!)

Game time! That’s right: this session ended with a rousing round of Dungeons & Dragons! I’m not going to pretend to be cool enough to know how to play this game, but capturing this family in their element was an absolute blast.

Thanks, Gaela, Jeff, and Max for hanging out with me, and for making this session perfectly unique to your family—nerdy-ness and all! ;)

I have a few more spots for 2019 portrait sessions, so contact me soon if you want to snag one. And get your nerdy ideas ready! ;)
