I Want to Ride My Bicycle – Stuttgart, Germany Family Photographer
Do you have the Queen song stuck in your head now?! Because I do.
I did a photo shoot with my neighbor Gina and her kids last spring during a delightful snowy, April day! We did a homeschool morning shoot and I absolutely loved it. I was so excited when she asked me to do a fall family shoot in one of my favorite Stuttgart places – the Barensee.
Gina and her family are HUGE bike riders; doing races and always out for a ride as a family. I was pumped when they said they wanted to include bikes in their session, but also a bit nervous since it was all new to me!
It was quite a cool October morning with some fog, but it ended up being such a great morning for our shoot. I’ve discovered I rather enjoy shooting in the fog – adds some great texture and mysteriousness.
In a couple of months I’ll lose these 2 cuties as neighbors and I’m so going to miss seeing them outside running around. I’ll especially miss getting drawings from my sweet Lilah. I may just keep her while they all move away.
I have so loved getting to know this awesome family and the next residents will have a lot to live up to. Hopefully they’ll continue drawing me pictures and chatting it up with me in the stairwell each week. If not, I may need to trade them in – haha!
