In every conceivable manner, the family is link to our past, bridge to our future. -Alex Haley

This family photo session is full of love and connections.  We are certain these memories captured by La Belle Bella Photography will be a beautiful reminder of the past, for this family, in the future!

What We Love:

Danell:  I loved my session with the Hopper family for so many reasons, but first let’s talk about these Matilda Jane outfits! This perfectly coordinated family wardrobe was certainly not wasted on me, I loved (LOVED!!!) the matching outfits. I never (NEVER!!!!) miss an opportunity to be matchy-matchy with my own sweethearts, matching dresses, matching swimsuits, coordinated going out to dinner wear… I am obsessed. So seeing another family with the same zest for family outfits made my heart sing! And I’m not just talking about white tops and jeans, oh no. These outfits were a perfect mix of color, pattern and texture. Floral prints paired with plaids trimmed in lace made the Mommy & Daughter outfits extra sweet. And the boys in their mauve cords worn with crisp white dress shirts finished off with floral bow ties to match. The whole ensemble created a playful twist on traditional. Plus Dad in his matching floral pattern tie…perfection. And, perfection wasn’t just left to the outfits but seemed to pour over the entire session. The kids were so much fun to photograph, many times I just sat back behind my lens clicking away as they played. I was able to capture so many sweet and natural expressions I could barely narrow down my images, in fact their final cut was over 100 images! There were magical moments of pure joy traipsing through the winter grassland finding sticks and dried flowers, imaginations ran wild. And best of all Mom & Dad were obviously still very much in love, they certainly had the spark! Their love was easy to see and made my job the best in the world. Enjoy these images from my session with the fashion forward Hopper Family.

Lisa and Rachel: For the first time in a year, we just want to write “ditto!” We can’t echo Danell’s sentiments on these outfits enough.  Perfectly coordinated outfits REALLY do add to a family session, it is so important to help guide your clients in their outfit selections.  Danell speaks about the connections and natural expressions between this family, which is not always easy to capture.  However we feel Danell captured all of these perfectly! Thanks for sharing this beautiful family session with us Danell!
