After weeks of nothing but rain, the sun decided to show up so we could take this family’s indoor session outside! It was fun getting some shots while they huddled up cozy on the couch, but nothing beats natural outdoor light. It was so great meeting the Prins family and seeing the love they all have for each other. And I’m going to have to bring fruit snacks to every shoot from now on because they saved the day for the littlest member of the family! It was a great time and I can’t wait to share their photos with them.
Becky contacted me to set up a surprise photo shoot for her mom, as part of a retirement celebration! The photo shoot was specifically for grandma and her 4 handsome grandsons. How sweet right?! These boys were seriously the most kind and respectful teenagers I've met...maybe ever. It was such a pleasure capturing the Marlowe family and I truly hope retirement has been nothing but a blessing!
The Groff family is one of the nicest families I've had the pleasure of working with. Celia contacted me to set up a photo shoot for her parent's 50th wedding anniversary. The catch was, everyone would be coming in from different states. So we had fingers crossed, toes crossed, arms and legs crossed, hoping for good weather! It was a little cold but thankfully no rain!
The happy couple talked about the years they've spent together and that ups and downs are a part of the process. You have to love each other through it all (even if you don't like each other!) Celia told me that she and her siblings were excited to do something special for their parents and asked them what they'd like to do - a trip, a gift, anything at all. She said all they really wanted was to have dinner with her whole family. This tugged at my hearstrings for sure, thinking about how someday my children will be grown and could live far away with families of their own...I imagine that time with them would make me the happiest as well.
Congratulations again on 50 years!
