It couldn’t have been more perfect – the beautiful mountains on Northern Idaho and a sunset that had the most beautiful golden cast. This family came to me through a referral of a past client, and asked to do family photos since their walls needed to be updated. And trust me- I know how hard to it to get a family photo up on the walls!
I personally love getting a family involved in something during a photo session so personalities and the family just have a great time. I know it can be stressful getting photos done- with all the prepping and praying in hopes that the kids will all cooperate, the last thing I want to do is make a family uncomfortable in front of a camera.
This momma had the idea of surprising the kids with a whipped cream fight. She mentioned when she was younger she worked at Dairy Queen and the employees would often break out in a playful whipped cream fight and she always wanted to do that with the kids. No need to convince me – I was totally game!
After the traditional photos of the family and the kids, mom and dad walked up behind the kids and started spraying the sticky and creamy fun. I got to stand back and just document the laughter and chasing. And after all the cans were all used, a quick swim in the lake was a perfect ending!
Here is a sneak peek into our session here in Idaho at Spirit Lake.
Now it was the surprise attack by mom & dad!! WHIPPED CREAM FIGHT!!!
Finally after all the cans have been used, the lake was the best way to wash off before the sticky ride home. I had such a great time watching and documenting this family. It makes my heart so happy when I can capture the love, joy and details of a family and children.
“I can’t even come.up with words to portray how very much these incredible images, and all the others she captured, bless my heart. I had been saying for several months that we needed new family photos done, now I know why I waited so long! These are amazing. Jackie Charlebois did an incredible job of tailoring the shoot to our needs, without allowing my lack of imagination to limit her, or our photos. I would ABSOLUTELY recommend her to anybody considering photos of any kind.”
Thank you M family – you all were amazing and I am grateful that I got to spend this time with you. I look forward to another moment with you all!
