We believe that family photography is a natural extension of wedding photography, and we love it when our couples come back to capture the new milestones in their lives.
Michelle and Jesse are one of our power #MANGOcouples. He’s a successful marketing director and she’s an accomplished real estate agent. Together, they had a modern, fun and amazingly stylish Malaparte wedding too pretty for words. From the moment they walked into their very first wedding consult, I knew we are going to hit it off right from the start. There just was such an incredible connection between us and working with them was so much fun.
A couple of years later, and Michelle started arranging their very first family session together with Blair, their almost 1-year-old daughter and Wilco, the Boston Terrier. We had just opened our new studio space and I really wanted to do something fun there. Knowing their personal tastes and design preferences (I’ve been to their ultra-modern loft and knew what kind of interior design they love) I suggested they keep their wardrobe chic, yet casual – something they would wear every day and still feel polished and put-together. I also sent them a few colour palette examples which were really just abstract paintings by Christina Moody! Funny thing, Michelle and Jesse happened to own one of her prints and were so excited to dress in those earthy tones. I believe wearing complementary colours is such an important component to great family photography, and these guys really nailed it.
We hope you enjoy these candid and lighthearted pictures! Michelle, Jesse, it was so much fun to reunite with you after your wedding day. We wish you and your family nothing but all the happiness in the world 💕
