This was a lesson in working quickly and having fun while doing it. I left this shoot feeling good about seeing the Gomez fam once again and although our shoot went rather quickly, I enjoyed the time I had with them.
It's always amusing taking a first look at images after a shoot. As I viewed the filmstrip, I remember all the little moments we had. Like the one when I asked the two sisters to kiss their brother on the cheek. The younger sister, who's actually a twin to the handsome brother, acted really uncomfortable with the idea. Suprisingly, the brother took it like a man and almost seemed to enjoy the moment.
Fun times meeting up with the Morris family right after New Year's. This made my 4th time photographing these lovelies. The first time "mom" was preggers with her youngest. So great seeing this family again and helping them document this moment in time....
A beach shoot in October is a pretty awesome thing. Boy are we spoiled! This was my fourth time photographing these lovely people. Noticed rather quickly that the oldest son is almost as tall as me now which really doesn't make me happy. :/
Thank you again Knox family! It's always humbling to be asked again and again to photograph your beautuful family.
Somebody really cute just turned ONE! Baby "G" has a special place in my heart. His mom and dad and older brother are good friends and neighbors so I get to catch a few smiles, waves and cuddles from this little guy almost daily.
Just a few of my favs from our mini shoot last week.
Meet my cousin Sara and her family. Recently, we scheduled a casual mini shoot at the beach while she was in town visiting from Texas. The funny thing is, on my way to meet them, I missed my exit and ended up stuck in traffic trying to get to the beach. Sigh.
Meanwhile, Sara informed me the kids had already made themselves at home at the beach by getting wet and sandy. Of course this added to my stress level because I know us mother's like to at least have a few good pix of our kids while they're still clean. :p
From the looks of these pictures, I would say the Moren family got their daily dose of exercise. I was literally smiling while editing. There's just something about the beach that brings out the kid in us all.
It's been quiet around here. Lot's of things happening in my life, too many to mention. This is why I have taken a bit of time off.
Just now getting back into the swing of things. And it feels good.
Admittedly, I went from the mom who documented EVERYTHING to the one who's been letting those special moments pass her by. Life. What can I say. Sometimes I'm living my days just trying to keep my head above water.
Having said that, I made it a point to take some pix of Mason at the tender age of 7 (ahem... and a half). Meant to capture these last June but I was running six months behind.
My strategy to get Mason to actually agree to take these pictures was to invite his very best buddy along. Overall, it turned out fairly well. Only, his buddy was way more into getting his picture taken. LOL.
Love these boys!! I have a feeling they will remain friends for a lifetime.
