The much anticipated “couch” session

I’m very happy to finally show off a great family portrait session utilizing my new prop . . . the flowered couch. I’ve been looking for something just like this for a long time. I scoured Craigslist but never found just the right one. Back in March, on an unplanned trip to Goodwill with a couple good friends, I found it. The colors were great, the price was fantastic, the only thing I worried about was talking my hubby into hauling it home and where were we going to put it? Well those issues are a thing of a past, now I just worry about hauling it to a shoot. Although Chuck has been great because he let me borrow the truck over a week ago to photograph this fun loving family. They were the *perfect* family to try this funky couch idea with.

I wanted a location with very tall grass to place this beast of a couch in. The kids didn’t mind tromping through the grass at all. Little “M” used it to tickle Mom and Dad.

This post is a long one because I couldn’t pick out just a couple to share.

After we grew tired of the outdoor furniture idea we went over to the pond to feed the ducks. Mom used this as a “treat” if the kids were good during photos. Didn’t have to mention it though because they were both well behaved. Come on, look at this little face below, Can you imagine her being naughty? I can’t. 🙂

And the last order of business for the morning was a couple updated head shots for Mom. She is a fabulously talented artist. This girl is so dang creative. I always feel invigorated after I get done talking new ideas with her. She is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside too. Completely grateful to call her my friend. 

Check out her etsy store to see some of her creations!
