This is my second year photographing this family, and once again these kids are angels! I first met this sweet family when our daughters were in a play together, it wasn’t long after Mrs. Connett was contacting me for a session. I think the best way to meet new clients is in real life and they already know you well enough so the first session isn’t as awkward!
I have been fortunate enough to photograph some of the best kids! There are some kids who are just natural in front of the camera. I also think it helps that I’m a “kid person” I’ve always been quick to connect with kids on our first meeting. It sure helps to take great photographs of them if they trust you. It’s been 3 years since I photographed this family. I’ve come a looooong way since then!
The rain has been pouring down here for the past couple of days, but thankfully our weekends have been beautiful. McDaniel Farm is one of my favorite places to shoot and every time I go I find a new area I hadn’t noticed before. This beautiful family did me the honor of asking me to capture them again this year. There is a handful of kids who just know exactly what to do in front of the camera and they do it so well. Their older boy is one of those kids, and it’s so much fun!
I don’t do a whole lot of advertising for my business. Word of mouth has been my primary form of gaining new clients. This family is another example of a friend referral, they were great to work with and their sweet little boy had the most expressive face, I just adore that!
It' finally feels like fall y’all! If you live in the south, then you probably know that while up north fall weather starts in August, we have to wait until November to actually feel the cooler weather. It’s difficult to be shooting holiday pictures and everyone is sweating from the heat!
This family is new to my clientele, and came recommend trough a friend. Which I feel is the BEST way to get new business.
I had the honor of photographing this sweet family and their newborn Evie May a couple of weeks ago. She is the first child for them and it was very special to be a part of it. I’ve known Jamie for 30 years and it felt so natural for me to be in their home and capture candid shots of them with their precious angel. I had rented a 35 mm lens 1.4 for this shoot and I loved it so much, I ended up buying it :)
New babies are so much fun to take pictures of. You would think they would be easy because they just lay there. But the opposite is true. They are much more difficult to capture because they just lay there. Trying to get a young baby to smile on cue is not easy, but when you capture it, all the hard work was worth it.
Don’t you just hate when you are so ready for fall, but the weather just won’t cooperate!? Well after this shoot we were all sweaty and hot. But I couldn’t be happier with the results. At least this family made it look like it was cool outside! I’ve know this woman for most of my life and it’s been such a pleasure watching her children grow up.
I’ve had the pleasure of photographing this family many times. It is the best feeling when a clients likes you enough to keep coming back again and again. I’m lucky enough to have many of those families. My clients truly are the best. They love my talent and trust me to make them look their best. It can be a big responsibility, but I embrace the challenge and love every minute of it.
