A few miles outside of Gladstone, MI we met up with Amanda to capture her country family pictures with her son and boyfriend. The location was picturesque with it’s field of tall grass, animals roaming all around, white fences, and beautiful barn. The morning sunshine was just beginning to heat up the day when we started the session. We ventured out behind the property in the field of tall grass. Amanda’s son loved exploring the area as he picked flowers to give to his mama. Everything was going smoothly until Amanda got a piece of grass stuck up her dress, she couldn’t stop laughing and thankfully her boyfriend save the day.
Next it was onto the barn and the orchard for more portraits. Amanda’s son loved climbing trees and especially love feeding the horse by the barn. Watching him carefully examine and watch the horse was adorable. After warming up to the horse he was comfortable enough to feed the horse some fresh picked grass. Those images may be some of our favorites from the day.
On the property there also was a tire swing that they took full of advantage of. It started out innocent enough by simply swinging back and forth, but Amanda’s boyfriend added a couple spins in for fun. Laughter filled the air and we loved capturing the fun. We finished the session by taking a quiet stroll along the road, a great ending to a great session.
Big thanks again to Amanda for letting us capture her family pictures and thanks to her boyfriend for letting us truly utilize so many spots on the property. It all added up to one incredible family session. Enjoy!
A piece of tall grass went up Amanda’s dress and was tickling her. Thankfully Matt came to her rescue, haha.
