Family pictures in historic Los Ranchos with the Butcher’s was such a great shoot. It was full of fun, games, snuggles, stories, running, and laughing. To say it was a perfect set of family pictures is an understatement. There was one very special factor that made this shoot so perfect and easy… Grandma was behind the camera! She was there with a big ‘ol bag of fun and goodies ready to entertain anyone who wasn’t being photographed. She had bubbles for the kids when I was photographing mom and dad Bucher. Snacks were out and ready when I was working with just dad and his mini me. When the youngest started to get tired of getting her picture taken, Grandma was there with snuggles and a sippy cup. She was a HUGE help! Definitely the one thing that took this family’s pictures in Los Rancho from easy to effortless.
Okay, let’s talk about the location. This one in particular. I have familys that would love to shoot at Los Poblanos and I would LOVE to shoot there too. The problem is that there is a big law protecting Los Ranchos land. Los Poblanos in Los Ranchos is a historic sight, which adds more shooting laws. So, the only photographers allowed on the grounds are those who work with weddings taking place there. There is a fee that can be paid, but it is hefty. Like woozas, holy cow, oh my gosh are you kidding hefty. So I found a place in historic Los Ranchos to take family pictures without the heavy price tag or breaking laws. Oh yeah, who’s got skillz? This girl right here!
So with our combo of Grandma being assistant extraordinaire, and one of the dreamiest locations in Los Ranchos taking the Butchers family pictures was the perfect way to end the busy season of 2019. Here is to 2020 and all the families I get to connect to and make magical, emotive, yummy light filled, fun, emotive pictures with. Bring it!
