From the moment I stepped into their home, I knew we were a perfect fit for each other: large black and white photographs and antique keyholes...ummm yes please! I was blessed to have the opportunity to photograph this family from the beginning; with the welcoming of their first child. My. oh my, what a session that was; lots of eating, a few portraits, and lots more eating, but in the end, it was a success!
Don't really use facebook too much these days, but one of the best parts is getting to see exciting things happening with our families. When I saw this mamma was expecting again, I couldn't have been happier. It's such a treat when we are trusted to document special moments not once, but twice! This time around we had a few plans that included matching some photographs from their son's portraits, but also a few special ones for little Miss G!
While writing this, I took a few minutes to review her session and it gave me chills. Sometimes we as photographers, get caught up in the lighting and/or the pose, but really it is is the magic of capturing love. The final portrait is by far my favorite, you can see the love in her heart for her babies, and the love he has for his little sister.
This is definitely my narrative; my dream was always to "help people" somehow. I am proud to say I am doing exactly what I have always wanted to do. Twenty-five, fifty, one-hundred years from now, I will have helped people to remember the love within their family.
G Family: Thank you for trusting us with your precious memories, it means more than you know!
