A client emailed me recently and asked if I still was photographing families. I am! Although, this fall, I'm only booking returning clients because I have a tight schedule. I'm trying harder than ever to walk into a session with no preconceived ideas of what I have to capture. I'm trying to throw that mental checklist away and capture the beauty unfolding before me. Tonight, I got to follow these sweet kids around their grandparents big yard. The oldest asked how I knew her name. I told her that I knew her name before she did because her mom is an old friend of mine. The youngest two are twins, and it's fun to remember a conversation I had with Leslie when she was newly pregnant. She told me her belly was growing much faster than she had expected, and I sort of shrugged it off as a normal second pregnancy symptom. A couple weeks later she texted with news that she was expecting twins!
