every year for the past few, this family has trusted me to capture their precious family memories. that sentence feels so good to type. and even better to think about. i feel so blessed. i love to be around them. they are happy. they have the bluest eyes, the biggest smiles and, thanks to me, lollipops.
we have met at the same park over the past few years so i was thrilled when mom asked to mix it up a bit. i loved the colors she dressed the family in–colorful and lively. and the light was perfect. the rest was so easy. this family naturally connects with the camera because they connect with each other so well. the smiles, hugs and kisses were all so fulfilling.
my job is to stand back and watch the family interact and to document it. so easy right? sure i switched the shutter speed and aperture. sometimes i added a circular polarizer and switched lenses twice. easy. fun. simple. perfect.
thanks melissa for sharing your family with me over the years. for believing in me and my photography and for just being so fun to be around.
