Beautiful Family.

Only nature could provide perfect golden colors,
I realized once again during a shoot with Ces' family yesterday.

I was a bit worried about how orange everything was,
but glad it turned out wonderful in the photos,
giving this romantic, dreamy, vintage-y feel. I LOVE.

Yes, photoshop did NOT do these colors.

I had the most awesome time photographing this family.
They're wonderful and fabulous, I fell in love with them.














I'm not a fan of backlighted photographs because I want to see the faces of my subjects clearly.
Backlighting darkens the faces to some degree (unless you use a flash or a strobe).
And I'm not a big fan of flash and I don't own strobe lights. I prefer to work with natural light.
I tried backlighting yesterday with this shoot while the sun was setting and beautifully golden.

I'm quite happy with the results.


Pin It!

Thank you, Cinds! It really was warm that day.
Everything was in warm tones because the sun was setting. It turned out to be the perfect time and place to photograph. :)

I wish my family had portraits like these. They're such beautiful treasures!
