I don't do a ton of family sessions in the summer. For one, it is HOT. And, I think most families are waiting for the fall to get their pictures taken so they can use them for Christmas cards as well.
But, when one of my favorite clients/friend/neighbor asked about doing a summer family session, of course I said YES! Knowing that it IS the middle of the summer here in the south, I was sure that we would all be sweating by the end of it. Luckily, the evening of our session ended up being cooler than normal, which was fantastic!! And this turned out to be one of my favorite family sessions to date.
I have been photographing this family every few months for almost a year, and I always love our time together. Reagan is now 15 months old and is one of the sweetest, happiest little ones I know. She is always smiling! Now that she is walking, it is a bit harder to keep her in front of my camera, but she remains one of my favorite little red heads!
Kelly, the mom, has her own blog. If you are interested in reading about the session from a client's point of view, head over to her blog and check it out!

She also has a link to where she bought her gorgeous dress!!!
