Autumn Adoration ▌Cochise County Photographer, Arizona

"A breath of fresh air"... the perfect way to describe the most gorgeous morning in Huachuca Canyon, as well as the perfect description for the family I had the sheer delight of photographing this morning! If I had any apprehensions what so ever about the upcoming addition to our family this spring, making us a family of five, this family encouraged me to believe that just because you add numbers doesn't mean you add chaos. Evelyn, the mother, is the picture of poise and grace as her two oldest children send the baby down the 12 foot high slide (not pictured, but just imagine!) Not once did I hear a single child bicker or demand "that's mine!" This family molded like silly putty to my every request, resulting in some of my favorite shots of all time. I'm going to blame it on pregnancy hormones, but when I got home and uploaded my images and saw the sequence resulting in the very first image of the two boys, I started to cry. They aren't even my children, but capturing this moment forever made my morning all the more worth the effort. Thank you for the crisp cool morning filled with nothing but joy - Enjoy your sneak peek! (And for you photo buffs, I'm trying out some new post-processing, let me know which images are shining for you!)

Karyn, these are wonderful. Love the first one of the brothers, did an "oh wow" when I opened your blog. Does your post-processing have something to do with the fine texture of the skin and hair in the 'sister & baby' shot and the last two photos? There just seems to be more fine detail when I compare them to other close-ups in earlier posts. Love the fall colors (and how the leaves seem to pop in the group shot) and the family's choice of clothing colors for this shoot.

This was an awesome shoot, Karyn! Despite pregnancy, you are still able to move about and get the great angles. :) There are so many good ones, the colors are terrific, all in the autumnal family, but I really LOVE the one of the boy on the slide with the sun flare. Another satisfied client, I am certain!!

OK....I have to tell the truth, this is the first time we've had family pictures done...and I'm in LOVE with the pictures. THANK YOU so much Karyn to have made this experience so wonderful and fun, but the pictures tells me that you are an awesome photographer and that I made the right choice! I can't wait to see the rest but I know that they will be incredible...!
