We enjoy meeting the families that are lucky enough to get a gift certificate we gave to a local auction or school. It’s always our pleasure to donate a session to the community or anyone that supports our studio. As the winner of one of these gift certificates Justin called to pick out a date to do family photos and as all other clients we never know what the weather will do. The morning started off with the threat of rain so we decided to wait it out a bit and talk later in the day. After looking at the rain moving out as well as the other photo date options, which were not many, Justin and Molly decided to go for it and keep the session at the original planned time. I am so glad they did! First of all the weather ended up being perfect, not hot or cold, just a wonderful evening. Second this family was great to work with the whole session. The kids listened to each and every direction, sometimes following directions that were meant for mom and dad. They smiled and had fun the whole time. Of course like any children sometimes the smiles got a bit fake but all I had to do was bring out a fluffy friend from my camera bag and the smiles were real again. It was so easy to photograph this family that we were able to go to two locations in the park. I think they may actually have too many options to pick from when they come in to view. However, it’s always better to have too many than not enough. We hit a family jackpot with these 4 and I hope we have the opportunity to work with them again in the future.
