Family Photos with Ashlee Raubach







I feel kind of awkward posting all these photos of us, and there are one hundred more that I would have posted, but I can't let our photo shoot with Ashlee Raubach go by without posting about it.

I know I blog a lot about Ashlee's amazing work with interiors, but I have to show some of her other work. My mom hired her to take our extended family photos in November for our Christmas cards. We were all excited to work with her. When we got the photos back I was blown away by her talents - I was staring at my favorite photos to date. I don't have very many photos of Presley and me. I am usually the one behind the camera. So when I saw this series of photos of just the two of us I melted. I am so grateful to Ashlee for capturing this time in my life. And for making us comfortable enough to just be ourselves in front of the camera - especially my Presley. I now have stills of this time where I feel the most happiness as a daughter, wife, and now mother. It is such an amazing role and something that has bettered my life beyond measure. I am forever in debt to Ashlee for these gifts! Thank you, thank you.





I am beyond obsessed with this shot of D and P.




And, she also got amazing shots of my parents that I am so happy to have! These are also going to be cherished and in my home for years to come.
Aren't these gorgeous?!

The last photo is the perfect example of the "new" family portrait. Very natural and relaxed... not in a studio! These are all so great!

Wow- these are the most beautiful family photos I've ever seen- the setting is gorgeous, and you all look so happy relaxed and love all around. I know what you mean about feeling grateful to have such sweet pictures of you and Presley- and especially photos that are so gorgeous! Motherhood is such an amazing thing, it's hard to describe, but these pictures show exactly how you feel.

Beautiful photos! The light is perfect.
By the way, would you mind sharing the name of the nail polish you're wearing? I love it!

britrussl said...

Um, gorgeous photos! How do you get that perfect wave in your hair? my hair's blonde and about the same length, and I'd kill for wave like that. Tell me it's something super easy....but even if it's not: dish the hair-styling details! :)

These shots are so amazing. Capturing family moments are one of the best things about photography. Years later you can come back and relive the very moments surrounding each image.
