Whether I realize it during a session or not, every family that we meet leaves an impression on us. Even after the craziest sessions I find myself sorting through images and realizing the impact. It's in all of those imperfect moments that a family really shines—when they're not looking at the camera or giving their best smile, but enjoying each other—and I feel that they've taught me something. That's the easy part, just taking in the lessons. The hard part? Trying to put those impressions into words every time I write about a family's session. This family is no exception.
The [A] family found us through a referral who, oddly enough, has never had a session with us (but we hope to remedy that soon). We had planned for a sunrise session, but it started storming the night before and we were afraid that we'd have to postpone. By some kind of miracle, we woke up that morning to find the bluest skies and not a drop of rain. The park we wanted to go to for our session doesn't really have a parking lot, so we met at a lot nearby with a little park attached to it. There were some flowers and trees, so we decided to walk around and look for nice backgrounds before going to our original location. We actually spent most of the session at the small park because it turned out to be a great spot!
Following this family around was such a breeze. Mom and dad were all smiles and laughs, and the love they have for each other and their little girl was... well, you can see it radiating from the images. Even if I can't put my lessons into words, the images will show you the fun we had that early Sunday morning.
