Carson Family

I love all my photography clients. I have been very fortunate in my experiences with photographing families to have a great list of clients who are easy to work with. The Carson's, however, are a stand out, they are one of those families who are all just natural beauties-inside and out.

They photograph beautifully and their love for one another is evident in the portraits.

They do not come with any reservations of how things might not "feel right". They do what I ask, never doubting. They trust in me.


.....and even bring their own great ideas to the table. Mark is a big Beatles fan and had the idea to recreate the Abbey Road album cover. We timed it right, with a train going through town, thereby reducing traffic flow for our shot.


And they indulged me with my ideas too....

I love this portrait of Shelli standing in this green doorway. I think she can give Victoria Beckam a run for her money anyday. Shelli is as tiny as a second and as sweet as pie.


And Mark, is another, who like his wife missed a great career as a model.



Or a country music singer, you know the one.



It is no wonder that their children are equally as gorgeous.
Paige is not only a natural beauty, she is the sweetest teenager you would ever want to meet. Impeccable manners, her outer and inner beauty transcend the photograph.


And brother Kyle, is a ham. His cute and playful personality brings much laughter to a shoot to make it fun!



Thank you, Carson Family, for entrusting me to take your family photographs and for another wonderful shoot!

I LOVE these photos!! I cannot wait to see the rest. You are amazing at what you do! I appreciate the time and effort you put into making our family portraits just what we wanted! You are highly recomended in our books. The kids had just as much fun as the adults and that really says a lot! I can't wait to see the whole shoot!

Leigh,
I am speechless! I love the pictures. I only have one problem. I like them all so much I am having a hard time choosing which ones to frame!!! I have spent the majority of my time since I got the cd from you looking at them and printing pictures! I went ahead and printed one copy of each. I love them all! I never imagined that I would like so many of them. You did an excellent job. I can't wait to put them all in a book so I can show everyone. I cannot express to you how much that I like the picts. Mark is very pleased also. I appreciate all the time that you took with us that day. I also appreciate all the sweet things that you said about our family on your website. Everyone has commented on that as well. You are so sweet and you have made me sooo happy with these picts! Take care and I hope you and your family have the best holiday season ever. I know that I will be seeing you again soon for the big Carson family photo. Hopefully we can do that in the spring! Take care!
