Nicholas, Danielle, and James Bachinelli met me at Kusel Castle (aka Burg Lichtenberg) for their family’s first photos together.

Magic ensued.

The sun slowly set behind the rolling hills of Rhineland Pflaz reminding me of the Thomas Kinkade paintings I loved as a child.  Then there was sweet James, just one month old, was happy and awake as soon as momma released him from the carseat.  Those dreaded contraptions! James snuggled in both his mother’s and his father’s arms for portraits and then inquisitively stared at the camera as the shutter fired away.  I couldn’t believe how alert he was, good job James!

While the castle and the scenery were gorgeous, capturing the family’s first photos together truly had my heart.

On to a few of their family portraits:
