Last year at one of my sessions, my friend said, "You really have the most awesome job! You get to see the best in people." I really feel that it's true. What a blessing it is to me to be with people who trust me to photograph the connections of the ones that they love the most. Families are a huge passion of mine and I just love the opportunity to capture those relationships. I feel very lucky to have both families that I have been with multiple times and then to meet new families who really fit my style and the way that I photograph.
I was so happy to meet up with Susan, Craig, Diesel, and Finley. We got together one golden afternoon and Finley marched over in her red sparkly shoes and shook my hand and introduced herself :). I was impressed for sure and Diesel was awesome too. We quickly discovered that he and my son are in kindergarten at the same school. Their warmth and affection for each other made it an absolute treat to photograph them. Having some gorgeous light in the gardens was a bonus too. I often tell my parent photography classes that I am most concerned about capturing authentic portraits and emotion, then lighting and then location. Having all three makes it really easy.
And of course, the last shot of the two-year-old being....the two-year-old...perfect :)!
I so enjoyed your beautiful family!!
