Fullbright Family

I was so excited to meet up with the Fullbright family.  I’ve known them for quite some time now – the cute momma teaches at the school where my mom was a principal up until this year.  I was even lucky enough to shoot her little sister’s senior photos back when I was just starting out as a pro photographer.  It may have even been my VERY first senior session!  Can you imagine?  HA!

When I was suggesting locations for them, I was super pumped to hear they wanted to visit the train depot.  I thought it would be a perfect spot to entertain their two year old little man, and it was!  We had so much fun and hung out on all the trains, of course!

Here are a few of my favorites…

NOPE.  I don’t think it would work.  His “Dennis the Menace” personality would still show through!  Somehow it works for Wes.   AND…being an adorable little gentlemen totally works for this sweet boy!  His parents are definitely doing something right!

I feel like the giggles and warmth pour from these photos onto the pages of my blog.  It’s why I love photography so much.  There’s an awesome feeling that comes when I know I’ve captured the true essence (even though I hate that word for some reason!) of a family – the way they are together ALL THE TIME.  I can’t wait for them to see these photos…

fullbright_0169-bwfamily2I told you it was all about the trains!

fullbright_0048fullbright_0150-bwI’m pretty sure you could park an old train in a field somewhere and I could literally do an entire session around that one thing…especially when little boys are involved.  Now, if someone would just invent lifelike Hotwheels cars for us to jump around on!

    I love these pictures! I don’t think the “Fullbright’s” could take a bad picture, but you did a great job Shannon. I can tell Grammy is going to need a few of these!
