It’s always a good time when Dad books the photography session because mom is getting treated to a special. But when Mom and Dad pack a cooler with snacks and WINE for their session, that’s an even better time. Nothing like a quick glass to set a mood of carefree relaxation. In fact, I’m about ready to recommend it to those clients who enjoy a drink and find themselves a little anxious about their sessions.

I met this family of five at Historic Oakview Park, a Raleigh park featuring towering white barns and a rural feel. After all, you can take Dad out of Montana but you can’t take the Montana out of Dad. Or his cowboy boot clad family. This session features some of my favorite sibling photos of the year.

As the year winds down, look forward to my September, October, and November sessions to pop in and say hello as cozy winter passes us by.

See you in January, folks!
