Guess what?! IT’S FRIDAY. I love Fridays. Since I work full time as a secretary I am always looking forward to the weekends. Weekends always mean time spent with my family and friends and typically photoshoots – which I LOVE. A couple weekends ago we all attended the walk-a-thon at Nova University for the March of Dimes. It’s the first one I’ve participated in and it certainly won’t be the last. I wanted to share a few pictures from the event, an inside look into part of my family life (the husband was NOT going to wake up early to walk therefore I say “part”.. LOL) so I went with my mom, sister, her fiance, our friend Josalyn and my daughter Arya. Maybe we’ll see you at the next one??
I have had the privilege of photographing this incredible family from the very beginning. In two ways, since the beginning of their family and the beginning of this business. I photographed Natasha and Quincy’s maternity session (one of my first ever) for Cadyn, his newborn session, their one year family session. I saw Cadyn again for the holidays and now this is their two-years-as-a-family session. I’m so grateful to be able to grow along with them.
We started out with a sleepy Cadyn but by the end, and after playing in the water, he was so excited and did not want to leave the beach for anything (and he made sure to let us all know that, haha). They are so fun to work with. Hope you enjoy some of these as much as I did! 🙂
This year was my first time holding mini sessions of any type. I was SO nervous about how things would go and was PRAYING so hard that the weather would cooperate. There were some slight hiccups throughout the weekend – like spotty rain, wet props, Saturday’s location being taken on Sunday – but in the end everything turned out better than I had imagined! I will definitely be holding more mini sessions throughout the year, and I’m trying to think up some fun ones that you don’t see everyday! Here are a couple of my favorites from all the different families.
Aimee, Thomas and I were in most of the same elementary and middle school classes together. Aimee and I were even close friends for years but when I changed schools we lost touch until the wonderful Facebook (seriously I love it for this kind of stuff!) came out and reunited us all again. I was so happily surprised to see the two of them had been married and were about to about to have a baby together. I was so lucky to shoot their maternity session (one of my first under the new business name) and then Aimee was fortunate enough to win my contest and get a free family session in after Nathan was born. The day was anything but usual as I had to brave angry owls, and compete with ducks that followed us everywhere. I’ll never forget this one!
