{Family Photographer Sioux Falls} The Downey Family

Every year I consider myself so blessed to get to know this family better. I was just thrilled when Jenny got in touch with me wanting to update their family portraits. We had a beautiful day to play in October and I just adore how these images turned out.

I’ve known this lovely family for more years than I can actually count and it’s been a joy to watch their family grow over the years. All families have their squabbles and times when they don’t get along but every time I spend time with this family I see how much they really love each other. And how much they love laughing together.

As the only girl, Hope does a pretty fine job of keeping her younger brothers in line. She’s also one of my kiddos favorite babysitter (and I can’t WAIT for her senior pictures later this year! Remember THIS session? Just a little preview 🙂

And those boys? They are quite adventurous and very funny. They had a great time scrambling up and down all of the rocks at the park where we did our session. No one fell into the water (although we did have a few extra muddy shoes) but we had a great time together.

Jenny (and Hope) did a great job with the wardrobe selections here. I always encourage families to pull things they have from their closets and to coordinate but not to have everyone completely matching. The great combinations of beautiful shades of gray, purple and denim are a perfect choice for a beautiful family portrait (as well as the boots the ladies are rocking!).

Downey family – thank you for once again choosing Julie Prairie Photography for your family portraits. It is my pleasure to create these wonderful memories of your stunning family.
