On an incredibly cold day at what seems to have been the tail end of this year's autumn season, this adorable family braved the chill to create these beautiful family portraits. Not pictured: very warm coats and extra jackets to keep warm between shots, and a lot of running around and silliness (and cookies) to keep the littles happy. :D
Truthfully, there's probably a hundred reasons why I love to photograph this family. But on this particular occasion, Marisa stole my heart when she showed up to our freezing cold winter pregnancy session with a thigh-high slit dress and told me she had picked the incredible Wääksyn Kartano estate ruins for a location. This is the stuff my dreams are made of. :P
I am so excited to to meet their baby girl and watch this amazing family grow.
