When we first got out of our cars at the beginning of Megan & Dan’s session, it was drizzling, and I just wasn’t sure how our evening was going to unfold! I love that they were up for anything and were ready to make it work. Their awesome attitudes carried through the whole session – Dan was laid-back and easy-going, eager to please Megan, and in turn, Megan’s face seemed to light up every time she looked at him, smiling and laughing the whole time. I love the images we captured during this session and cannot wait for their wedding in April of next year!
I had the opportunity to photograph Cameron while she was in town for her baby shower, thrown by her cousin Ashley of Ashley Thunder Events at The Red Barn Experience. We headed to the beach for pictures while Ashley set up, and as always, my jaw just dropped when I walked in and saw how the space was transformed! It was a beautiful day from beginning to end and the perfect way to celebrate this new chapter in Cameron’s life!
Sometimes I have a session that just makes me a little more emotional than usual, which is really saying something because I’m terribly emotional and have a habit of falling in love with my clients. I think it’s because I notice the little things and pay close attention to interactions and hand placement and laughter and even those quiet moments in between other moments. So this session was one of those…and it was emotional for me before it even started! When Marci e-mailed me to book a session and explained how important family pictures were to her and her sister and how they wanted to document the lives they had created for themselves, I teared up right away. And then to see Stella, whom I hadn’t seen since her newborn session, running around on the beach, and meet Lane and see how sweet he was with everyone…and then just the amazing way all 5 of them gelled, and hugged, and made each other laugh. It made me miss my brother, made me wish I lived closer to my family…it was just that kind of session!
