I have been photographing the Archibald family now for 8 years!  Every single session is like Christmas for me!  Josie Beth is one of the trendiest ladies I know.  She has the cutest outfits for her family, and her sets (did I mention she is also my set designer in the studio) are amazing – absolutely amazing!  Sessions with her always get my creative brain going helping me to remember why I got into photography in the first place!

Isn’t this AMAZING?  Josie spent hours driving around our little county trying to find the spot – you know, that spot that just sings to you the moment you see it!  It was so worth the time spent, this is now my favorite location ever!  The day of our session was very overcast with dark clouds.  Every once in awhile, the sun would peek through the clouds making this amazing lighting!  Fantastic session!

Josie always has the CUTEST outfits for her family! Everything they are wearing are from her own little store ReFind.  She said she likes how the high class look plays against the raw landscape.  She also said  “I love mixing things up and refuse to match. It was a whole tapestry feeling with the clothes.”  Go check out her store, you will not be disappointed!  She is a VERY talented friend!!

One of the things I love the very most about photographing Josie’s sweet family is that she loves the candid, fun, un-posed feel in her sessions.  If Mr. Gable wants to run and laugh….. well we better put on our running shoes and capture his personality!  A lot of running and giggling happened with Gable’s little antics!  Granted, we do try and grab at least one or two good posed shots, but after that, we capture them as they are!!  That is so freeing as a photographer.  I feel like I’m just invited to a little party and happen to have my camera with me!

As you scroll through these images, you can feel every single one of their personalities!  From Gable and his continuous movement to Hazel who loves attention, and little Miss Poppy who is a bit shy compared to her big sister, but has the sweetest little expressions!

Thanks once again for an amazing adventure!
