The Rader Family- Family Session in Rock Hall, MD

Let me start by saying this family is FULL of personality, which made this session so much FUN!  When I was first contacted by the Raders, they were looking specifically for a group shot(s) for the family Christmas card.  As we walked along the family’s property, we certainly had a goal of “Christmas Card” in mind, but decided to let the session play out naturally.  We took advantage of the golden hour in a little area along the water, found a steep hill the kids enjoyed jumping around on, and finally settled in along some very large evergreens to grab a few traditional holiday pictures.  All in all, I know we captured quite a few classic photos…but I’ll come back to those later in this post….because I can’t wait to share all of the candids that really made this session something special.  Most are a little silly, but that’s who this family is, and it warms my heart to see it captured in images.  I most enjoyed the sibling love…

all the sass from this little one, who is clearly very used to her brother’s antics…

trying to get everybody to jump at the same time…

the littlest ones asking to make hearts with their Mommy…

and last, but certainly not least, the product of being told to act naturally in-between posed shots…

Did I mention that this family is so much fun!?!?  Ok, now that I’ve let you in all the sweet and silly candid moments, I’ll share a few more favorite shots of the day. Thank you, Rader family, for sharing your afternoon with me : )
