Shooting candid family photos is one of my favorite ways to spend time when we aren’t photographing weddings! We had beautiful weather for this relaxed outdoor portrait session in Columbia, MO. This little baby is lucky to have green fields, a lake, and deep woods to call her backyard! There was no shortage of great portrait spots wherever we looked, and the light was beautiful. Thanks to this sweet family for their adventurous spirit during this session, I had so much fun hanging with you guys!
