Phew, here is a little snippet of last Saturday’s mini-sessions at McDonogh! What a bunch of precious kiddos! I have so many favorites … it’s just impossible to narrow it down to just a couple. Everyone was so wonderful, the campus was breathtaking and seriously, the weather was totally perfect! I couldn’t have asked for anything better – I really enjoyed myself … such an awesome way for me to spend the weekend.
I also got to re-live my high school days … LOL. So super strange to be walking around the sidewalks and through the buildings of the school I called home for four years (a LONG time ago!). All of the sounds and smells are exactly the same … it’s amazing what you remember and how those memories can really “take you back.” I am definitely reminded of how stunning the campus is too – I will definitely be doing mini-sessions there again!
I am officially finished with Saturday’s images – all digital files will be available tomorrow! Unless we discussed a pick-up, I’m heading to the post office tomorrow 🙂 THANK YOU, thank you, thank you to all of the families that met up with me! I am beyond thrilled with our results, I hope you love your portraits as much as I do!
A few more images from the first weekend of mini-sessions. Actually this was the 2nd weekend because it was our Sunday rain date … but I guess still “technically” the first weekend at Jerusalem Mill. What a bunch of cuties I had … AGAIN! I love my job! LOL.
Thank you to all of these great families – your kiddos are absolutely wonderful and I had such a blast spending the morning with you!
What a fun session this was! You can just see how much this family loves each other and it shows in their portraits (especially that last one – love it!!). Both of the sisters are gorgeous and I’m thrilled with our resulting images. It’s easy to see where they get their beauty from … can you believe mom had been awake for 36 hours before the session? You’d never be able to tell, that’s for sure!
She is a doula and was helping to bring another miracle into the world. So amazing. If you know anyone looking for a doula, please let me know – she is super patient and has a bunch of births under her belt!
Anywho, the girls did such a wonderful job, especially considering it was dinner time! I just love all of portraits we captured last night 🙂 Thank you G. family for another perfect session! I’ll let you know as soon as I finish with your proofs!
I was REALLY looking forward to this session! Mom & I were classmates at McDonogh, so it seemed like a perfect location to photograph their session. S & A are also celebrating their 10-year anniversary and they got married at McDonogh (another perfect reason to hold the session there!). The campus is insanely beautiful all day, every day – I was so excited to go back for a mini-visit!
Compared to our session last year, we definitely had our hands full this time! 1-1/2 year olds are tough by themselves, but when you add in 4 other family members, it can get pretty interesting. I will say though – both of the older sisters have an amazing record-setting amount of patience. As usual, they did everything I asked and then sat and held their positions as we attempted to coax little sis into posing for us. Everyone kept their sense of humor and we laughed … a lot. LOL.
Two and a half hours and almost an entire memory card later, there are tons of awesome images to work through. I just couldn’t narrow the peek down to my usual 5-6 images, so I posted more 🙂 This is a special occasion for a very special family, so enjoy browsing through some of my favorites so far. Happy Anniversary, I hope you enjoy the sneak peek!
Well what a difference the weather and time of day can make for kids. You may remember these kiddos from HERE at Jerusalem Mill a couple months back … it was insanely hot and just not a good time of the day for the kids, so we rescheduled. We got awesome results yesterday, I’m just thrilled!
You can see that big bro was an absolute ham and little sis has such amazing baby blues. I still had to chase after Miss E., but that’s how it goes when you’re 2 – there is no time to stop and sit very long for a lady with a big camera 🙂 There’s just waaay too much to do!
Her Daddy is really funny – if you ever need a good laugh, I’ll put you in touch with him 🙂 LOL.
Seriously, how handsome is this little dude? He did SUCH a great job for me and did everything that I asked of him. What more could I possibly ask for???
I just love all of these … there is nothing like seeing parents with their kiddos interacting, having fun and enjoying themselves. There’s even more of Mom to go through, but these are 2 favorites so far.
And last but certainly not least, one more of Miss E. with the serendipity processing that I’m still in love with 🙂 She is SUCH a doll!
I had such a good time with this session, what a pleasure it was to photograph this family! Everything was just about perfect yesterday for our session and it definitely shows in the images because everyone had so much FUN! Thank you E. Family, I’ll let you know as soon as I finish with the rest!
