This handsome five-some is the Holt family. We had the absolute pleasure of doing their awesome autumn family portraits at our Lake Orion, Michigan farm studio this past fall. They were such a photogenic bunch, no matter where they were on our grounds, they just took one great photo after another.
As a local small business, we always try to give back to the charitable organizations in the surrounding areas by donating portrait sessions to their fundraising auction events. That being the case, that’s exactly how the Holt family found us. Mr. & Mrs. Holt had attended an event for the wonderful organization, Charlotte’s Wings which is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to supporting ailing children throughout Michigan through donations of new books. Generous and photogenic, talk about a dynamic duo!
The Holt children were especially awesome to photograph. Whether they were snuggling together for an adorable sibling photo or letting their goofiness take over in their more candid pictures, they just always knew how to captivate the camera. Not to mention, their natural features looked great with the fall colors which really made all of their eyes pop. Just look at what great looking kids they are!! (By the way, it’s also worth mentioning that all three of them we super polite too.)
One thing that was really great about their family portraits as well was their perfectly coordinated outfits. Many people think that fall photos automatically means that you should lean more towards oranges, reds and brown but on the contrary, the blue, green and eggplant jewel tones that the Holt family chose add a beautiful contrast to the fall colors that isn’t overstated. Additionally, they had a great balance between dressy and casual which allowed them to be more versatile when it came to where they posed.
Thank you so very much Holt family! Not only were you a blast to photograph but we had a wonderful time getting to know the five of you and hope to photograph you for years to come.
