The Anast’s are just those kind of people who you can’t help but have a great time around.  We met them a few years ago when little brother was just a baby, so it was fun getting to see them again and this time, at their gorgeous property in Loomis.  When we first talked about the possibility of doing their session at their home and I asked N about what the property was like, she said it really didn’t have much on it but this falling down old tree.  We were super excited when we heard that, and of course she thought we were nuts but took our advice anyway and went forward with having their family portraits made at their place.  As you can see, the falling down old tree was awesome!  We had so much fun just following the kids around the property, letting them run free and explore.  We did sneak a few of mom & dad in, and the one shown here was our absolute favorite of them!  This lovely family is a constant reminder of how lucky we are to be doing what we love; they invited us back as a family a few weeks later for dinner…what a blessing to become friends and be invited into the homes of those we are so fortunate to photograph.  Thank you Anast’s for everything!IMG_6611flatcrop copy_2 IMG_6700aflatcrop copy IMG_6691 5x7 copy_2 _MG_7499flatcrop copy_2 _MG_7459flatcrop copy_2 _MG_7430flatcrop copy_2

    Enchanted Images you have done it again! What beautiful family portrait. You captured the magic of this wonderful family. Everyone looked so relaxed and happy. Enchanted Images really brought out the warmth and love of all these personalities. I can’t help but think the idea of being on their own property showed a great life style and comfort. Makes me want to go visit the Anast’s.
