Mashia Family - Skaneateles Family Photos

The Mashia's met me at the Skaneateles Country Club on a bright summer's evening for a mini-lifestyle family portrait session. My sessions are very low pressure and unstructured, there is lots of playing, dancing, & even time for snacking (if the session feels like work for your kids the images will show it)! I love photography because it forces me to be present and to really observe situations, their 9-year-old showed me how quickly kids grow up...at times she was startlingly mature and then a few moments later she was enjoying a juice box while sneaking a cuddle from her mom! I feel grateful that I had this evening with the girls to capture them while they were still little girls (for the most part). My favorite part of the session came at dusk...the girl's reward for being awesome was getting to jump in the lake in their clothes!!!
