A family, an airplane, and a heck of a lot of fun

I truly love family sessions. For as many times as I’ve said I’m not good with kids, kids are scared of me, kids act like I have the cooties, or whatnot, I find myself really enjoying working with them during family sessions. And you know what? I’ve realized that they do kinda like me. I […]

 

I truly love family sessions. For as many times as I’ve said I’m not good with kids, kids are scared of me, kids act like I have the cooties, or whatnot, I find myself really enjoying working with them during family sessions. And you know what? I’ve realized that they do kinda like me. I was really looking forward to this session. Mom Ruthie contacted me and said as her husband Brad was a pilot and was actively building an airplane (props from me, I’m a pilot myself as most know but the mechanics behind how airplanes and their systems work have always been one of my tougher areas of study, me being the right-brained artsy type). She was wanting ideas on how to incorporate aviation into a small part of the session, and I suggested that we could use my airplane, though it’d be a bit of a drive for them. They enthusiastically agreed so we started the portrait session at Midwest National Air Center just northeast of my studio in Liberty, where my little 1947 Cessna 1920 calls home. After some fun shots with the plane and I had her tucked safely back in her hangar, we headed to Liberty to finish the session just as sunset peaked. Enjoy looking at this adorable family’s images!

what a dumb question, asking the kiddos if they wanted to sit in the airplane! 😉
