While prepping these photos for my blog, my mind went back to my childhood and all those wonderfully unnatural JC Penney family portraits that we took. There was the first day of kindergarten portrait (with a very fresh haircut), the "leaning on a random plastic pillar" portrait, and my very favorite, the "mom and I are wearing matching dresses, causing us to meld into a big flower-print blob" family portrait.
The Bagge family photo session was more like "Bagge family play time" and that's the way I like it! While studio portraits have their place, I'll take candid photos with a few dirt stains any day, and I think that most of my clients would agree.
Who knows, maybe one day we will all laugh and say "remember those days when we took all of our pictures in the woods?"
