When I photograph a family I've never met before, there's always a big case of nerves beforehand.
There are so many unknown factors... will the weather hold? Is it too windy? Too cold? Will the kids like me? Will I make a fool out of myself? (The answer to that one is always yes!) :)
I take a few deep breaths to get started, and jump in with both feet.
Then I start to see it happen.
Little by little, they start to show me pieces of their life together and their personalities in the most beautiful manner.
And then by the end we're all worn out, laughed out, and snuggled out.
And I realize I had nothing to be worried about at all.
Becky and Trevor, YAY! Thank you so much for taking a risk with a brand new photographer and letting me and Sunil get to know you and your kids. Nobody froze, and we all made it out alive!! :) Enjoy the photos, and Happy Thanksgiving!
