Beautiful family, gorgeous kids....totally planned on this session being a dead ringer.
I thought we would play, have fun, run, be silly and enjoy the sunshine. Well, the boys had a different idea....we'll just say it wasn't much of anything I thought it would be. The parents were awesome about it, but I just knew they had to be thinking we totally wasted our time. They seemed semi-encouraged when we left, but no really big expectations.
I always want a really, really, really fun photo shoot experience, but when it doesn't happen, I LOVE when this (below) does!
I follow this couple on Twitter. I must say, I do wish more of my families would use this tool about 2 months before coming to me. It so helps to be able to peek into relationships before I actually get to photograph. Neat!
This family is super-d-duper-terrifically fun and inspiring to be around. They not only know how to laugh and have a great time, they also have incredibly grounded morals and great big hearts for each other. Watching that through the camera makes for some seriously good stuff! It's fun to be around, too!
When clients feel more like family than business acquaintances, it's a good time all around. This family def fits that bill. Watch this and see for yourself, you'll want to know them, too! : )
We've been everywhere with this family, Erwin, Cleveland, Nashville, Johnson City.....What a blessing to photograph their children since both of their births. Incredible, incredible people with great big hearts and total "HOOTS" to hang out with! I love their bigger than life lives and love to watch them go crazy loving on their kids.
Every session we've ever had has been completely "put together" and planned to the T...this one wasn't. I've been thrilled with our previous sessions, but this one may just take the cake! Honest, it could be my favorite one I've shot for them. Time forced us into just letting our hair down and rolling with the punches and can I just tell you???? That...my friend....THAT is when the magic happens. Strange but true.
Enjoy a peek into family life for the Cantrells.
Every year, I have the distinct pleasure of photographing this beautiful little princess. And every year I leave her party thinking about what an absolute honor it is that this family puts their trust in me to document these milestones for their daughter. Grateful.
Okay, so the birthday party, the most amazing princess party I've attended to date.
Everyone dressed up in their "fanciness" and made magic fairy wands, escaped the wrath of the horrible dragon, enjoyed a lovely lunch and some cake and waited patiently, very patiently whilst their castle was being inflated. A fun time to be had by all.
You may have recently caught their Life, Actually.
I usually try to give you (you=the viewer) an idea about the family I showcase here, in this instance, the Life, Actually will do that for me. Click the link above to see the show! This family is incredible and I am already super pumped about our next session!
