It finally happened. A moment that I have feared for many years. I was a minute from my photo shoot and realized that my camera battery was still in its charger, plugged in – AT HOME! After a moment of panic (at a red light where I confirmed the aforementioned fear), I pulled into a parking spot at the waterfowl park, grabbed my camera case and found my backup, put it in and voila – problem solved. The reason why I’m even mentioning this is because until three weeks ago, I didn’t have a backup. Preparing for a wedding shoot led me to realize that it was really just a matter of time before normal human error required me to have one. So I purchased one, threw it in my case and didn’t think of it again – until I needed it! Ryan and Leah arrived while I was happily gathering leaves for the kids and knew not of my moment of panic – until they read this! HA! Being prepared for anything is a huge lesson that I have learned as a parent: keep swimming supplies in the vehicle at all times, always have fever meds in the cupboard, and band aids should be kept everywhere.
Nelly, at almost 3, is silly – all the time! She has a big personality, lots of energy and loves to laugh. She was very entertaining and I suspect, keeps Mommy on her toes!
Baxter just turned one and he smiles – all the time! He met me, and smiled – sat down, and smiled, hit his sister and smiled – ate leaves and smiled – came to me, and smiled. Can you see a pattern? I am sure, he has smiled more than any other model EVER (with the exception of a bride)!! Well done Bax! He is lovely and that smile is contagious!
Ryan and Leah, it was great to see all of you again! I’m so glad we were able to meet up! Enjoy your preview!
Another beautiful fall day, another trip to Beech Hill Park to meet up with a fabulous looking family! It doesn’t get any better than that for this photographer – especially with these cuter-than-cute little ones!!
The reason I do these write-ups is to make each session a little more personal. Usually, something that happens or something that is said prompts a little glimpse into that particular family, their personalities or life in general. Well, what grabbed my attention during this session was little Alexa’s expression of wonder when she was looking at the bubbles. Sometimes, the things that we take for granted may be incredible to someone else. We need to take the time, especially today in this incredibly fast-paced society we live in, to slow down and enjoy the little things. Especially with our children! Bubbles, a game of a catch, tag, catching frogs, making a cardboard house, exploring the woods or jumping in the leaves can all rejuvenate the soul especially seeing the joy it brings someone else!
Thank you so much, each one of you, for a wonderful session. Having fun together makes for the best family pictures! Enjoy your preview!
