Charlotte Family Photos

Grandma tells a story!

A recent August afternoon was the perfect time for some long overdue family photos. Covid kept this family from celebrating the holidays in late 2020. So, they celebrated Thanksgiving and Christmas 2020 in August of 2021.

Quick Planning Made Family Photos Possible

I normally book about 3-5 weeks in advance for weekend family photos. However, this party was on a Tuesday so booking just a few days out was no problem. Luckily after a rainy stretch, Vermont gave us a warm and dry summer day!

The family had rented a house in Charlotte, Vermont and we decided the nearby yard would be easy and beautiful. It was both!

Updated Family Photos for the Moms

I made sure to get some pics of Mom with just her kids. I hope this one ends up on the wall!

With a professional photographer on hand, each individual family was excited to get updated photos.

And, of course, the whole family photo!

A relaxed photo in the grass captured the vibe of this free-wheeling family reunion.

But, we had the most fun getting candid photos while they were relaxing and catching up.

I loved watching Grandma with her grandchildren! I could tell that these are very close to her. And, she was so excited to hold them tight!

If you know me, you know I love dogs. Bailey the Beagle is a sweet old pup who is very, very loved by her people.

Gallery Sharing made it easy for everyone to order wall art

Just a few days later, I emailed the finished gallery link to my client. It was easy for her to select and order a package. And, even easier for her to share the link with extended family. In fact, within a few hours of sharing the gallery her sister in another state already had a print order coming her way.

I always check orders before sending them off to the printer. I edit my images so they will look best printed at 16″ x 24″. (A big metal print looks great on most any wall!) When clients want a different proportion, like a 5″ x 7″ print, I double check the cropping before giving the thumbs up on the print job.

I love to see my work in print and to reconnect with clients. So, my local clients get their wall art hand delivered. I ship directly to clients from out of town. Either way, I always have a plan to get my clients both prints and digital images.
