Happy_campers_nicole_caldwell_0092_resizehappy_campers_nicole_caldwell_photo_55-ANIMATIONFamily photos at Happy Camp.  This was a great shoot, just letting loose, having fun and – may fave- getting shots in between the shots. Those fun, organic, takes in between poses, smiles etc, were eyes closed and laughter happens, a fun place, after all we were at Happy Camp.

Tiffany is a HUGE fan of everything 70’s and the macrame in the shot is one she personally made.  Sienna won second place in a hula hoop contest, and that ukulele is hers, she was a bit miffed as it was out of tune, which made for some great captures. Sienna injured her foot, and the boot was a wonderful surprise, and a must to stay on for some shots.Happy_campers_nicole_caldwell_0125_resizeHappy_campers_nicole_caldwell_0135_resizeHappy_campers_nicole_caldwell_0189_resize

“We were thinking of black and white dramatic pictures with high contrast, in the studio and around Orange circle. Coming back full circle from our engagement photos.” – Nat and Avo.  My ideal shoot- studio and black and white.

The above image is Nat and Avo on their wedding day.  Just seconds before we were having fun in the photo booth, I then asked them to show how they really felt ( as they were about 12 hours into the event at that point) and this is what they gave me.  It hangs in our studio wall as one of my favorite wedding images ever taken.

This video reflects how we like to shoot our familes, and how fun a studio shoot can be! We like to let loose and have fun, let the kids be kids. It’s the shots in between the shots, that are the magic.
