I've been photographing this family for a few years now and I just have to say....they REALLY know how to act in front of a camera! See for yourself if you don't believe me....It's nothing I'm doing, they're just that good!
We've loved photographing his first year of life. Happy Birthday Little Man!
Meet some crazy-wild twin seniors from Virginia. We were dreaming about our session and started talking about how cool it would be to shoot in an old abandoned house....a few days later, they were in a convenience store (of all places) and somehow in conversation, the cashier offered up this incredible place for us. Weird, but excellent!
So we went and it was FABULOUS! These girls have been dreaming of their senior pictures for years. I am so, so, so honored that they would allow me the opportunity to flesh their vision out for them! Here they are...wild and c-c-razy beautiful!
Her spirit comes through her eyes and smile, doesn't it? She's absolutely awesome. I sooo love working with seniors who are fun, happy and ambitious. She fits the bill perfectly.
Every time I'm around this girl and her mom, it has been like visiting with old friends. Isn't it cool how we connect with some people instantly and others it takes much, much, much more time? ;) Sometimes I wonder if I think too much?
This session took place just days before the oldest son went off to school. I love that in most of these images, his mom is looking at him so sweet! Can't think about my kids moving away anywhere!!! I cry just at the thoughts of it.
As I look through these images, I get a strong sense of peace and relaxation.
It's a feeling that makes my shoulders subconsciously rest and takes my mind to a place far away...a Saturday in the mountains with no agenda, perhaps.
I love getting to know my clients before our session. I had the opportunity to get to know this girl before she knew me (well, before she knew I was a photographer). My son and her little brother were on the same baseball team together and so we would get to chat at their games. Near the end of the season, connections were made and the family allowed me to document her senior portraits.
Her sweet spirit inspires me. Her dreams, ambition and love for life is exhilarating. Her look is "beauty" in it's purest form. Overused or not....she's just beautiful.
