After years of trying to find my voice as a photographer, there is a moment when you think: “I made it”. That happens when people hire you because they “get” you. They love those “in between” moments. The love the images of not everyone looking at the camera. They love the playfulness of the images, and how they really show who they are as a family. After this session I felt accomplished. They hired me for the work I am happy to create, and that comes from my heart!!!! YEI, YEI, YEI! (I just did a little happy dance while writing this blog).
The beautiful girl in these pictures used to be my oldest son’s best friend in pre-school. Even though I felt out of touch with her mom for a couple of years, she followed my work, and decided to hire me. I was so happy and honored that she came to me to photograph her gorgeous family.
