If you've ever seen my landscape images, you've probably noticed that I love photographing old "stuff".... barns, building, mines, trucks, or anything else that has been given character by time and the elements! So when this sweet couple, Chris and Kendra, wanted holiday photos with this old truck on their property I jumped at the chance. Not only could I capture an old truck and a beautiful family, but I got to do a little bit of my other favorite past times... decorating, albeit temporarily decorating a truck for the holidays. When I showed up at their home my vehicle looked like I had packed up all the Christmas decor in my house! But after a short set up to make everything a bit more festive I was ready to capture some images.
This truck was in the perfect setting on their property for holiday portraits, set against pine trees in the snow that lingered on the ground thanks to the shady location. Chatting with Chris before the session, I learned that this wasn't just any truck on their property, it is the truck he inherited from his grandfather so it has very special meaning to the family!
We captured images of the entire family as well as some shots of the kids and some couples photos while the kids played amongst the trees. Despite the very cold temperatures this entire family was so easy to work with and the kiddos not only gave me some great smiles but also some funny faces to show off their personality, which I love. I'm so happy I was able to capture these special photos for the family and can't wait to work with them again!
