Sweet Sunday afternoon at the clubhouse with the Socol Family. The flowers were in full bloom and matched perfectly. Each year the girls wear their sparkling ballerina gowns and bare feet for family pictures. I was looking back and found the first time we met – four years ago. The girls have kept their sweet smiles and precious hearts. I included a couple photos from our first session….
I was first introduced to David through Rawls Whittlesey at the Red Earth Acupuncture Clinic in Peachtree City. To keep a long story short, I ended up volunteering at the clinic a few hours a month last winter and got to know David, the Red Earth staff and also got to meet his family. One of the many reasons I love living in a small town is because you do get to know each others families, passions, favorite places to eat and then perhaps get a chance to meet in a cool spot and grab some fun photos. Don’t get me wrong, I loved taking the staff photos for Red Earth – we had a blast, but I am endeared to the family sessions most of all. ♥
Family photo sessions don’t often carry the best raps and tend to leave lingering impressions that don’t lend to wanting to do them again… However, when a little girl shows up in purple butterfly wings, special bracelets with a matching necklace, a big brother who can’t wait to get his photo with her and parents who welcome her freedom of expression – how can you not have the best photo session ever!?!! Those purple wings, her smile and imagination brought so much joy to this simple 30 minute session. We all loved watching her take flight, I just got to be the one holding the camera. She definitely left a lasting impression on me. Perhaps I will write a couple blogs this winter…
• Tips I’ve Learned From Kids; what to bring and wear to family photos.
• Tips from Parents; candy doesn’t have to be the only reward that makes your child smile.
We weren’t the only ones who thought family photos would be funky at a late 1800’s historical park in Golden. We hopped around a few other photo sessions and certainly captured some laughs. Brinley was of course interested in feeding the chickens and hugging the nearby statues. She even shared her water with the buffalo. (See the last photo…) I really enjoyed our time together AND we definitely all got a great workout in chasing lil’ Brinley around the park!
Sarah has been faithfully printing many of my clients’ prints for years over at Mike’s Camera in Lone Tree. I thought it was about time give a little something back to her. Thank you Sarah for sharing your magical touch on hundreds of images I have sent through your lab. My clients are always so very happy and grateful for their amazing prints! #mikescamerarocks
