Karina Lebadeva Family Session
Karina, Josh and I met initially last year during Karina’s pregnancy. She and Josh we expecting little Coraline and we ended up becoming friends. I’ve had the pleasure of watching Karina become a mother to her precious little girl since before she was born! There’s always something incredible from watching a bump transform into a little person.
Karina and Josh are a laid back couple and so we thought it was fitting to do a session in a wide open field. The golden grasses, bright blue skies, and openness give a sense of hope and optimism to these pictures. Because of their relaxed nature, we focused on images featuring genuine connections between parents and child rather than super formal posed images.
If you notice in some of these images, little Coraline is touching her nose or playing with her ball. By including these images, we are able to look back years from now and see that at year-old Coraline was learning about her body parts and loved playing soccer. I always find ways to add in personal details like this because it serves as a perfect milestone marker for all of the amazing changes that happen over the years.
Karina, Coraline and Josh are one of our annual families and we can’t wait to work with them again!!
