A couple of months ago, I hosted a ‘family portrait giveaway’. It was completely spontaneous & out of the blue! Even my husband was like, “what are you doing the giveaway for??” Oh no reason, just because, Idk, to make people happy. 🙂 Yes, I’m cheesy like that! I posted the giveaway on instagram, and I got such a great response! Tons of comments & they all made me super happy. Jema De Leon ended up winning the giveaway and it was so exciting! Not only has it been, like, forever since they’ve had family portraits, but their 11th wedding anniversary was coming up & it was perfect timing for family portraits!
Now, her husband is not a fan of pictures, he made that very clear to me right away! Haha! It’s all good, because we all ended up having a GREAT TIME! I was determined to make this photo session different & enjoyable! I really wanted something completely natural for them, all about their family. No props. Just them 🙂
So here we go, let’s take a peak into their family session.
Their little girl, Bella, was so adorable! I seriously think that she may have a future as a photographer, because she was giving me all these ideas. She was even throwing in ideas, that I was already thinking of or about to say! Haha! It was too cute & actually helpful 😉 lol!

Love these two b&w, especially the one on the right!
At the end of their session, we went to a big open field. This is exactly what I had imagined for them! My favorite family sessions don’t include a million props. The perfect family session is all about the relationship & the family dynamic. Laughter, smiling, that is what a perfect family session is all about! 🙂
“So I won a giveaway back in April from Cupcake Photography for a family session and I must say we had an awesome experience. Abby made us feel so comfortable and relaxed, that it just felt like we went out for a walk. Thank you so much Cupcake Photography for an unforgettable gift!” -Jema De Leon
Love, love, love these creamy b&w edits. So pretty!
Thank you again for everyone who entered the family portrait giveaway! Can’t wait for the next one! 😉
