Alex and I have loved getting to know the Finn family! Dr. Finn is a professor at the school Alex and I both attend, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. Alex has had several classes with Dr. Finn and the Finn's were actually there when Alex and I first met! Dr. Finn invited Alex to go with him and his family to a fall conference where he was speaking and the rest is history (you can read about it here)!
I was thankful for the chance to do a quick 20 minute mini-session with the Finn's a few weeks ago. As Leah put so well in an instagram about their session, it was a dreary and rainy day, we didn't have a lot of time, and we took these pictures in their back yard, but they're real and that's why I love them! I was thankful to hear Leah thought I captured her children's personalities well because that is always my goal! That's why I love naturally lit pictures in beautiful and familiar settings. Everyone has a different style and taste but I would choose natural, candid pictures over posed, artificially lit studio pictures any day. Here's a few of my favorites from their shoot:
