Today’s adorable Beloved family session comes from Sara Arrigoni of The Blessed Everyday, based in Seattle.
In Sara’s own words:
‘When families hire me for a Beloved family shoot, they are often unsure how to balance the fact that they still want a gorgeous “holiday card” type photo, but they also want photos that reflect their family and, in particular, the personalities of their children. With three children of my own, I know photo shoots can be a stressful time for mom in particular, as they worry about how their kids will look and behave. But Beloved allows me to interact, play games, and just have fun with my families! By the end, I feel more like an out-of-town aunt who got to visit for a few hours more than just a photographer.
For this particular shoot, we all ended up barefoot and having fun in the sand… no small thing when a shoot involves a 3 and 5-year-old! We had a beautiful Seattle day, and we enjoyed the sun on the shores of Lake Washington. These happy kids aren’t just “saying cheese” for the camera. Big sister’s protective, nurturing nature and her little brother’s more playful side are revealed. Can’t you see how he adores his big sister?
Mom even took the time to send a special Facebook message a few weeks after receiving the images: ‘I have been meaning to say that I am absolutely in love with the photos you took. They will be cherished for many, many years”.’
