Shelley Lake Family Portraits- Brandi, Chris, Kim, + Daniel- Shelley Lake, Raleigh NC

Brandi contacted me about capturing portraits of her and her brother's family for their mother's Christmas present. We met up one morning, a couple of days before Christmas at Shelley Lake Park in Raleigh NC and captured some amazing pictures! These guys are a good looking group and the lake was doing it's thing too! You would think we were at a resort! I love when everything falls in place to create the perfect family portrait session! Be sure to leave these guys some love below! You can also find out how to book Nine19 Photography for your family portrait session while you are down there!

This kid was awesome! Full of energy, yet soft spoken, and kind! He had a plethora of awesome ideas for our session and as you can see, he's the fastest kid I have taken portraits of all year!

How to make your subjects laugh, get everyone involved:

If that doesn't work, you turn them loose on each other!
