Family Session at Watson Woods Riparian Reserve

One of the best and most rewarding parts of my job is getting to work with couples and see how they grow throughout the years and witness their journeys. Some couples you get to start out by taking their engagement pictures, then their wedding, then later on their maternity pictures, all the way to their family session. It seriously is such a cool thing to work with them when they are just a family of two and then later on get to capture them with their children. It makes me feel like I’m almost a part of the family and it means so much that they choose to share their biggest milestones with me.

One of these families that I have gotten to do this with is the Nemeths. I have gotten the opportunity to basically capture every big moment for Travis and Cassandra since they found out they were pregnant with their first child. From their pregnancy announcement, to their gender reveal, to their maternity pictures, to their sweet baby girl’s newborn pictures once she finally arrived, and now finally their family pictures almost a year after her birth. I have loved getting to capture all of these huge milestones for them and see their family grow right in front of my lens. (It also doesn’t hurt either that they seriously made the CUTEST baby ever and I could take pictures of her all day!!)

For their family pictures, we went down to the Watson Woods Riparian Reserve in Prescott, and did their session over where we could find some shade. It was a HOT summer day and we had to walk a lot further than we originally anticipated to get out of the sun, but let me tell you, little Hadley was a champ and she barely even made a peep the whole time! She made my job way too easy and she is seriously just the happiest little baby! You can see from these pictures exactly what I mean and how she was just so smiley and content!

Before you get to see their recent family pictures down below, I thought it would be fun to take a little trip down memory lane and show you some of those milestone moments that I was talking about. These pictures are so fun for me to look back on and I loved getting to be a part of their journey! (It’s also kind of crazy to see how much my photography style has changed over time!)
