As a small business owner, I am so blessed with the wonderful people, and families that choose me to capture their memories. This year has been especially humbling because I have had a number of couples wanting to see me repeatedly for new sessions….even after a few years have passed, they still think of me.
This super sweet couple is one of them, and I can’t thank them enough for inviting me back into their lives, and to let me share in the excitement of welcoming their sweet baby Lexi into the world. ♥
It would probably be a lot easier for me to have a studio location where I could manipulate the lighting exactly as I want it, wait for my couples to arrive instead of driving around, and being able to show them big beautiful walls of my work on large canvases with pretty flowers and trinkets showcased around the room. Maybe even some tea or coffee brewing.
I don’t have that luxury right now, but I also really enjoy the spontaneity of the experience. Capturing the light in an instant is up to me …having that instinct and intuition ahead of time to get it right is something I thrive on. Probably why I enjoy Weddings so much too. It’s always a challenge and I only have a second or two to make it happen properly.
I also love that my pictures reflect the environment of the subject. This baby will get to see her beautiful nursery that her parents worked so hard on and put so much thought and love into. It’s so nice for the parents not to have to make the trip either, and they feel so much more comfortable in their own home, surrounded by their own things. I’m happy to provide this service to them because I will always remember the struggle of traveling with a baby…even just to the grocery store, such a production! LOL
Thank you Vicky and Robby for this incredible honor ~ your baby girl is so beautiful and you are already amazing parents…remember that you’re doing the very best you can, and that all you need is love. ♥
Congratulations to this beautiful happy family! ♥
