Andy & Jayne celebrated 50 years of love this year, in 2016! Can you imagine 50 years being married and they have never got their pictures taken. Jayne has shown me a few images of their wedding in 1966 but there are not many and during all these years when their kids grew up until now no family pictures.

Now, with their 50th anniversary, their grown up children were asking for photographs of Andy and Jayne, so, I got the chance of creating their memories.

When Jayne booked their session, I offered to come and check out their property in High Rolls because that’s what their children remember from growing up. We met and very quick I understood that Jayne loves the nature and it’s beautiful colors as much as I do. And we looked for a way to include it in this session. The fall colors worked great for us and we thought of including a beautiful sunset into their session.

The day of the session, we decided to meet at the Trestle Trail in Cloudcroft, New Mexico to take some of their photos. From there, we went down to the trestle and back to their house. So, we did three different locations. And I love all the pictures of them. Even Andy enjoyed the photo session a lot. I had so much fun during their photo shoot. Unfortunately, it was very cloudy, so we decided to not wait for the sunset over the Tularosa Basin that you see from their deck of the house.

After I arrived at home, I started uploading these beautiful photos. Suddenly, I saw the light changing outside my office. I went out on the street and what I saw was so beautiful but in the same time made me so sad that I did not stay with Andy and Jayne. There was this beautiful sunset and the clouds were just breathtaking. I had to take a picture and just went out on the street to catch it. So sorry for Jayne.

Anyways, we had a great session with lots of fun and we enjoyed each location and loved all the fall colors. These are amazing memories that their family will treasure forever!

Documentary Photography Sessions are a different kind of Family-Sessions. They usually take place at your home. At home, your children feel safe and you can catch the smiles and laughters of them much easier.  The photos are not posed, I just catch the individual moments. Documentary photography works for families with little kids until the age of maybe 8 years. You can play with your kids their favorite games, cook together, or go outdoors where they can jump, ride their bikes, and run through the sprinklers,  etc. Bedtime stories are also a great way to document family-time, play in the bathtub, read them a story, and cuddle each other.

In my latest family-documentary-session, I was looking for something unusual to create their Christmas cards. As it is very common to make Christmas cookies, we decided to document the Christmas baking.

So, I arrived at Melanie’s and Jens’ house. The dough was ready to roll. We placed Lara and Lena on the island in their kitchen that they can easily reach the dough. Lara, the oder daughter jumped right into it and had to taste the cookie dough, then started to make their first cookies. While doing that, she discovered how to play while making cookies. The sprinkles were thrown through the air onto the dough and she just had fun. Lena first had to get used to this situation but after awhile she started to do what her sister was doing and the fun began. At the beginning, they ‘only’ threw the sprinkles through the air and tried a few of them to eat, but then they discovered the flour. The cookies looked great and they had to get more done. They threw the flour through the air and had so much fun. Melanie and Jens first had fun watching the mess but then quickly realized they would have to clean the whole kitchen. Look at these two girls then you know they had fun making Christmas cookies. They got the flour all over and when we had to finish both needed a shower very bad.

I really had fun watching this family during that time even my camera got flower all over ;-). The cookies are delicious. The only problem they have now, these children will never ever make Christmas cookies without creating a mess in the kitchen.
