Kids & Family: Cold Hands, Warm Hearts

Baby, it’s cold outside! Okay, not quite, but this adorable winter family shoot sure has us longing for colder days and winter fun. Coming together with the amazing Melanie Bennett Photography on a nippy November day, this family documented some precious bonding time and the growing baby girl that would soon join their family. The shoot turned out more magical than anyone could have imagined. Why is that exactly? Beautiful, freshly fallen snow covered the whole woodsy area they had selected for their backdrop and a soft, golden light began showing through the trees right as their photo session began! Needless to say, with a setting like that, the resulting images turned out to be quite stunning. However, as much as we adore the lovely winter wonderland that accompanied their Chickakoo Lake playdate, a different element caught our eyes and snagged our hearts. The ooey gooey chocolate and marshmallow filled s’mores and hot chocolate feast that they enjoyed by the warm fire they built as a family. All bundled up in their coats, they snacked on their delicious treats and demonstrated to us that it’s the small things — like snuggling up by the fire — that make life as a family so precious.
