I got to photograph this beautiful family at kind of a cool little spot under the arsenal bridge...only that's not where we originally planned on doing their session!
Several weeks back, I found a great location in downtown Davenport. It was an ally that was sandwiched between 2 really nice stone and brick buildings...there was a great loading dock around the corner and perfect light. It was my new favorite spot.
I had this family meet me there just as I had had 2 other previous families meet me there in the weeks prior. Only this time, there was a not so friendly gentlemen in that ally who not so kindly stated that he owned the building and photographers were not allowed to take pictures there. I had just met this family and so it was a bit uncomfortable dealing with that situation in the moment...they were awesome though and even backed me up a bit. We graciously left and went across the street for the remainder of the session.
It wouldn't have mattered where I photographed this family though, they would have wowed no matter what the setting. Just look at them!
The youngest, Ryne is 8 months old.
Oh my, I could have stolen him for sure!
Gorgeous, sweet, scrumptious!
Then there is the little Diva Lainey.
She was SO MUCH FUN to photograph! I am talking, BURSTING with personality!
15 year old Annalise was gorgeous...I mean, c'mon!
She did disclose that she isn't a huge fan of getting her picture taken, but I must say she was amazing in front of the camera and the camera LOVES her.
