The Richards Family | McConnellsburg, PA Family Photographer

Instead of doing a "Best of 2012 | Portraits" blog post I'm going to write blog posts on each family, children, maternity, and newborn session.  I was lucky to meet so many amazing (and beautiful!) families this year - they deserve way more than just one or two photos tucked away in a huge post.

This is one of those sessions that I left with a huge smile on my face.  This family is real.  They love real, they laugh real, and they work real.  They live right on their family's farm.  With the help of other family members and farm hands, they milk a lot of cows and maintain a lot of property.  A lot = hundreds.  Not only are they hard working, but they are involved in their community as well.  I come from a family who raised me on hard work, maintaining property, and caring for animals (in our case, horses).  So I get it.  And I appreciate it.  The light during this session was amazing.  When I crossed the mountain (for those who don't know where McConnellsburg is - it's a small town safely tucked between mountains), the clouds parted and the light was gorgeous.  God probably planned such perfect lighting for this amazing family.

Thank you again for allowing me to document your beautiful family!

 I love this photo so much, especially with the cows in the background :)
