I really enjoy engagement sessions. I don’t get them very often, because I don’t shoot weddings, however, it is always a nice change of pace when I do get the call for one. For the most part, I don’t have to chase anyone around! Sometimes the grooms-to-be need to be corralled, but that is rare! LOL!
This session was very nice for three major reasons:
1. the guy is my husband’s friend and co-worker
2. the couple has been together forever and they are such a nice couple
3. I got to use a some-what hidden location that I found on a scouting mission one day (besides that day, this was the first session I have shot there). It is SO beautiful there!
Here are a couple of sneak peeks for you!
What a better way to celebrate your anniversary than with your grown children and their families?! This lucky couple’s children wanted to do something special for their milestone anniversary while every one was in town. So, they surprised them with a big family photo session. Isn’t that sweet?!
This family was so fun and easy going, we *could* have been done a lot sooner than we were, but I was having too much fun with them, so I dragged it out longer. LOL!
When I first started looking at the shots from the session, I realized that you all are going to have a very hard time ahead of you. There are so many great shots! Anyway, I won’t tease you any more, here is your sneak peek! I will let you know when the rest are ready for you to see.
I was so happy that we were finally able to do this little sweetheart’s session. We have had to reschedule a few times, due to her not feeling well. So, I was so thrilled to see her nice and healthy for our session! She is such a serious little girl, but we managed to pull quite a few smiles out of her (don’t worry mom, I PROMISE there are smilie ones for you!). I was just in love with her gorgeous eyes! She has such blue eyes, with the LONGEST blonde eyelashes ever (can’t really appreciate how long the lashes are from this shot, but there are others I have that show them off!)!
After the session was over, we were walking back to the car, and what do we see? A baby gator! He was standing really still by the water, I just had to grab a quick shot. As many times as I have been to that location, I have never seen one there. Fish, ducks, turtles, yes. But never a little gator!
Here is your little sneak peek (and a gator)! I will have the rest for you in a few days! ENJOY!
Just wanted to send some love your way on Valentine’s Day!
Anyway, I was watching Jay Leno last night with the husband. He was reading some responses about love questions from kids in 5th and 6th grades. Made me really laugh, probably because I have a son in that age range. So, today I asked him a question that they asked on the show to hear what his response was.
Would it be better to be single or married? Why?
“It would be better to be married so I don’t have to be doing all the work. And so I can kiss gorgeous lips whenever I want!”
*sigh* my son!
Happy Valentine’s Day!
Well, that isn’t something I have been asked to do before! I have done modeling headshots and senior headshots, so I was confidant that it wouldn’t be much different. I was right! I had the privilege to photograph the CEO and CFO of the company For The Fit (they sell shorter men’s clothing). I have to say, it was nice to take a break and not chase little ones around. They actually stayed put for me and didn’t have me bribe them to smile! LOL! Since it went so well, I have decided to offer this as a regular thing now. So, if you need headshots, I will come to you! Doesn’t get much easier than that!
In case you are interested in their company, the website is http://www.ForTheFit.com. Check them out!
(And here us an excerpt from their site about the company):
ForTheFit.com was founded in 2005, by the husband and wife team of Consuelo and Jeffrey Bova. After Consuelo became frustrated with the lack of stylish, high quality apparel options for her 5’7″ slim & trim husband, an idea and a unique new company was born. Currently, ForTheFit.com is the nation’s premier short men’s apparel retailer. They serve customers throughout the U.S., as well as Canada, the U.K. and Australia.
Not that they aren’t ALL special! But this one was for my extended family. My husband’s brother lives across the country, and unfortunately, we don’t see him very often. Well, as soon as he booked his ticket, my mother-in-law booked a session! She really wanted some photos with him and his girlfriend in them. (Because you KNOW she has plenty of us and the boys! LOL!). As much as she didn’t want to be IN the actual photos, she was a great sport (because you know I made her be in there!) and I am so happy to have these now too! I know she is anxiously awaiting her sneak peek (she insisted this be treated just as a REAL session!), so here you go! Give me a couple of days, and you will have the rest of them!
Yes, as actually FROM Norway! Now, I have had families hold sessions with me while on vacation before, but never from this far away! They were visiting family, and the family here was the ones who suggested a session. I felt so honored! We had such a great time! I was a little worried about making the little ones happy, because they didn’t speak English. However, apparently, I can make kids laugh in any language. Goofy faces and acting weird, seem to be universal! I have so many favorites as I am going thru these photos, however, this particular shot made me literally smile when it popped on my screen. So, that is the one I will share as the sneak peek!
Give me just a few more days, and I will have the rest ready for you!
