Martinsburg, WV, Family Photography

Can I just say, I loved this family! Joy & Don and their little munchkins were so much fun! It was pretty chilly when we shot these, but grandma was on the sidelines with a blanket to wrap the kids up in between frames. After we got a few shots showing off their cute little outfits (check out that miniature necklace and tiny neck tie!) we just decided to make the blanket part of the ensemble! Then we popped into a bookstore to warm up and caught some sweet candids of the little ones perusing the children's section of four season's books. joyanddon-7




Before I ever book a new client, I want to be sure our visions line up. Just yesterday I pointed a new caller to a different studio because they were looking for formal, indoor, posed portraits. Those are nice, but that's just not what we do at Claire Watson Photo! Joy & Don were totally on board with the lifestyle inspired shoot from booking to our ordering session and it was just perfect. They even loved the outtakes of their little girl crying because that's real life! That's what my style is all about- capturing not just what your family looks like, but who you are and how you love each other!

Thank you Joy & Don, I so enjoyed our collaboration!
