Germany may not have Target, Chick-Fil-A, or indoor play places at McDonalds (which is all extremely unfortunate), but it is absolutely chock full of charm and gorgeous places to take photos! This weekend I met up with one of my favorite families and we strolled through the streets of Weiden and captured a few little adventures involving 30 degree weather, Christmas market festivities, and even a hot glass of cider.
First, look at this baby. The eyes, the cheeks, the hat! And if you scroll down you’ll see her gorgeous, curly-haired and hazel-eyed big sister. Get the shot gun ready now, Scott.
My favorite photos are almost always the ones that happen in between the poses, like this one. Because the little acts of adjusting your hair, cleaning your kids face off, and having a wide eyed little cream puff on your lap are a beautiful portrait of real life.
And did I mention that this happy couple and their two little princesses made standing out in the cold look easy? I have the advantage of not being in the photos and dressing in as many non-photogenic layers as I want, ha! So thank you to this family, this family, and of course the one you see here for getting outside with me and being such lovely subjects!
Saturday was a big day. We went back to the Pressath tree farm and picked out our Christmas tree, I turned 32 (each year gets a little less exciting, but so far my thirties haven’t been bad), and I got to sneak away from my usual routine at home and photograph this sweet family! And let me just say that it was cold. Like, in the low 30s. I was the only one wearing a coat, but these three didn’t mutter a single complaint, not even the baby! They were real troopers.
They live in a beautiful little town that’s nestled away in the hills, and so we had some stunning scenery and sweeping views to work with. But honestly, I think the wood pile and this old green wagon was my favorite little spot of all.
Just look at this little girl’s face, isn’t she a doll?!
And between all of the happy, picture-perfect photos is one that captures the hassle of the stroller….hahaha. I got a few stroller shots during the last family shoot also, because somehow it seems more honest to document the entire process rather than just the poised moments.
I’m so thankful for the opportunity to do this photo session! Each one is it’s own little adventure. If you’re in the local area and would like your photos done, you can get more detailed information HERE.
