If you just read the title of this post — “OH MY GOSH, The Bevell Family is SO cute!” — You probably have already looked at them and are saying the exact same thing 😀 Their genuine affection and effortless confidence in front of the camera might make you think that Team Bevell (they are a very athletic family…so I’m hoping you all are enjoying my play on words here 😉 – does this all of the time. But NO– it’s been years and years since Mom Tammy has updated their family portrait and it was way overdue. Dad Darrell was holding it down as the only fella of the fab five and as you can see — big points for participation…he was such a good sport! Oh and if one of the Bevell’s above is looking familiar to you — yep, you guessed it — we first met Softball rock-star Kylie earlier in the season when we did her senior pictures. Here’s a quick link to her shoot
Can we all agree that Stuffy and Stiff sound more like Snow White’s new Dwarfs than our ideal family portrait? I don’t have any scientific evidence, but I think a lot of people equate “Formal Family Pictures” with tight, uncomfortable and awkward — The Hanson Family here is going to shatter that perception. Rocking crimson and black in all of it’s upscale awesomeness…this quartet kept it light, carefree and full of joy. Prior to the session, Mom Amy and I talked about the fact that this was the families first time getting dressed up for their holiday family pictures (so exciting for me) and we chatted about her concerns, hopes, dreams (I’m a little bit exaggerating on the last “dreams” part” but you get the idea…we took time to get on the same page) We made appointments for the family over at Sorella Salon to get camera ready prior to the session and I can’t say enough how much of a confidence builder it is to put yourself in the hands of a professional hair & make-up stylist prior to your photo shoot (models in magazines wouldn’t think about getting in front of the camera without a team…so why shouldn’t you have the same indulgence) It was cliche Seattle rain on the day of our session but the brilliant part was — IT DID NOT MATTER because we photographed in our beautiful studio with a chic Ralph Lauren inspired set and holiday music pumping. The truth is, it can be really challenging getting a family portrait together when you are the Mom responsible for air traffic control of the entire shebang but you can relax — this is what we do and we are here to make sure it’s as easy and fun and possible. It doesn’t have to be Scary, Awful and Stressful — those gems can be left for the three other Dwarfs!
Talking about her is not half as awesome as actually seeing Dani girl in action! This 2015 Senior is one of my very favorites of the entire season.
The Ryan Siblings walked into the studio wearing their sweet array of teal and navy — quite ready for their close up! These babes were total pros…we twirled, we snuggled and not a tear was shed (by the kids or the grown-ups 😉 ) If you have children…I know you know exactly what I’m talking about!
