Next family up on the blog, is the family of a past senior! I love when families come back to see me. It’s great to catch up AND get them some new beautiful photos! Even though I am pretty sure, this was not tops on the boys’ lists to do, they were great sports (and I think that they even, maybe, had a little bit of fun too! It’s so great that all of the family wanted to do this for mom.
We had a great time on our shoot at Kraft Azalea. It is a beautiful park, however at this time of year, it is packed solid with lots of families getting their Christmas pictures! Thankfully, we can all work well around each other so everyone gets beautiful images 😉 Here are a few sneak peeks from our shoot:
‘Tis the season for family photos! Now, not all of my family clients want sneak peeks, because they want to save them to send out to family. And that is totally understandable and no problem! This family wanted to do family photos to have new and updated family photos, not just for a holiday card. I have photographed one of their daughters for her senior photos this year, and then mom decided it was time to do a whole family session. LOVE THAT!! She wanted to do it at the beach. I think the kids would have been happier if it was the beach in the afternoon, not at sunrise ;), but they were great sports and woke up super early. And we were so lucky with a gorgeous sunrise that morning! (That part I can’t control, so I am always super excited when it all works out like this). All said and done, I’m sure all 3 took naps that day, knowing that they made their parents happy with some beautiful new family photos!
Here are some sneak peeks from our shoot:
A new program for seniors that I introduced this year, was called the “Model Experience”. This was to take the place of my reps. Now, I loved having reps, mostly because I got to work with them their entire senior year. They had the opportunity to earn bonus photo shoots. Well, the NEW program, was you pay for whichever level of “Model Experience” you wanted (based on how many bonus shoots you wanted). Everyone has a main shoot in the summer, and then the bonus shoots are during the fall/winter. They can have one bonus shoot or two bonus shoots. And what the bonus shoots are, is completely up to them! I ask what they want to do, and we go do it! Most of the bonus shoots will be with one or two other models, and that just adds to the fun. So far, the program is working great, so I do expect to do it again for the class of 2020, so stay tuned, if this sounds like something you (or your senior) would want to do next year! Sign ups will be in the next couple of months!
The next bonus shoot we did was out at Magic Kingdom! I have two girls who are in the model program this year, that are Disney fanatics! So, why not try a shoot at Disney?! Unfortunately, the schedules wouldn’t align for them to both go the same day. So, no problem, we will go two different days! Faith brought her sister along (who is a past senior client of mine AND a future WEDDING client of mine too!). We had so much fun playing around in the park. They even got me on the teacups (NOT my favorite ride, because it makes me sick). But anything they want, and anything for a fun photo! Here are a couple of sneak peeks of my model Faith (and a bonus one with her and her sister):
