I wasn't sure we would be able to pull this session off, and it turns out that it was one of my all-time favorite sessions. I love doing engagement photos anyhow and rarely get them because I'm generally known as a children/family photographer (which I also love!). My cousin Christina was recently engaged, and she needed her photos taken before it got too nasty out. I was completely booked for the year, and didn't have a single free weekend, our schedules didn't mesh, daylight savings had kicked in so we lost an hour of sunlight, then it was bitterly cold and running. I thought, "This is never going to happen. The odds are against us." But we braved it anyway. Well, Robert and Christina braved it. I stayed bundled up in my warm coat and hat. ;) In the end, they were the perfect models, and their photos turned out AHHHH-MAZ-ING! I enjoyed editing this session (I don't enjoy editing very often) sooooo much!
My little sister Jennifer's senior photos were my *official* first professional session years and years ago. What an amazingly long time ago, although not that long at all! And now she's a mommy and has a handsome little man, my precious nephew. Yes, she has already had the baby by the time I've finished her session and is growing like a weed (unfortunately for my immediate family, their photos usually take a back seat to my other clients so they wait a much longer time). It's wild to me that she's a mom because she's my little sister, but she's a wonderful mom and loves that little boy to pieces. And she was a beautiful mommy-to-be. I loved taking her photos as we prepared to welcome that sweet little guy into our lives.
This was another last-minute fill in for a cancellation, and I'm so glad it worked out that way! This is my bestie's sister and her family, and they are a BLAST! We always had fun when they just had the oldest kiddo, but now with two, it's even better. We're always laughing and acting silly, but we get great shots out of it. Love watching these kids grow, and love working with this family!
