I was about to go on a blogging frenzy (many, many sessions to post) when I realized we’re awfully close to holiday cards being sent out. And I really hate to steal thunder.
So, I’m being patient. I’ll start posting client sessions again in a couple of weeks when I feel confident that the cards or announcements are out.
I want to thank everyone for helping me book solid this Fall. While it was tough to turn people away at the end, it was also pretty amazing to be so busy. Just a handful of sessions remain this year and they’re all spoken for. Then, lots and lots of much needed sleep!
Thank you all for your business and your referrals. I have the best clients ever.
This awesome family lives in my neighborhood. I photographed them last fall, and was very happy to be asked to capture their family again this year. Because they’re just a couple of blocks away, I sometimes see them at the playground, walking down the street, etc. The kids call me “photo jenny,” which cracks me up.
This year our session was on a Sunday. We had a great time, but as is often the case with the under-5 set, when they’re done, they’re done. So, imagine the look on 3-year-old Ms. J’s face when she spotted me at a play session the following morning. I could read her mind: Photo Stalker. I briefly considered finding the toy camera that my son had played with earlier, but decided against it.
Maybe next time.
Fall is no longer “Fall” to me. It’s officially “photo season.”
I’ve worked with so many wonderful families over the past few weeks. And there are many more to come! I’m waiting for a three little newborns to arrive, too. (I love all of my clients, but the tiny ones sure are fun to hold.)
The good news is that clients are getting their photos right on time. The bad news is my blog is suffering for it! My blog posts might be a bit less wordy, but there should be no shortage of images popping up on this blog over the next few days.
Please don’t take my short posts as lacking love for any of the families that are in my upcoming posts. Each and every one of these families was fantastic! Seriously, I’m the luckiest photographer there is.
I had no idea, but the last time I photographed this family, mom and dad had just learned they had a new baby on the way. I had so much fun with Ms. M the first time, so of course I jumped on the chance to meet her brother.
We had a quiet weekday morning to play at the beach. It was cloudy, but for shadeless sessions close to midday, that’s actually a great thing. After starting at their home, we took full advantage of the empty space and ran around until I was out of breath. (Ok, so maybe I’m a bit out of shape.) All of that fresh air did a number on baby L though – he fell right asleep in the middle of our session!
A favorite part of my job being invited back to document a family’s growth. Thank you, G family, for letting me capture this moment in time.
This family helped me start it all. Back when big brother was just a teeny tiny guy himself, she bravely volunteered him for my first “real” session. Many, many sessions and a little sister later, they’re still one of my favorite families to photograph.
We met bright and early at her home. The absolute best time for outdoor photographs is closer to sunset. But as any parent knows, that’s not the best time for some kids. Soon after sunrise works, too! With just a little love on my end we can get delicious golden tones perfect for fall photographs.
