It's that busy time of year again. Obviously I've been having a hard time keeping up with blogging. This time of year would be busy for me even if I didn't have a photography business - I have three soccer players this year, five practices a week and three games (with so much overlap, unfortunately). It's school carnival time for both the elementary school and the preschool, and I'm in the middle of those. I feel kind of maxed out on my volunteer hours right now, but it's all stuff that's important to me so I can't quit. I find myself sitting at the computer late at night after all my meetings are over, trying to keep my eyes open and get sessions sorted and proofed, not to mention marketing, etc... I feel like I'm working at a snail's pace and I apologize to clients who may be waiting. The school stuff will slow down in a couple of weeks and that will help.
This family came to one of my school fundraisers. Their session was so perfect. I love it when I can capture children like this. Their girls started out blowing dandelions and from the first second I loved everything they did. I'm always hoping to capture the relationship between family members, and I thought this session was a great example. A lot of fun and a lot of love! As I was sorting through what to blog I was ready to post them all :) (but luckily I restrained myself... a bit...)
If you're interested in more information about a family photography session, my website has lots of info about how I do sessions. Or you can call or email me if you have questions or would just like to chat about it.
I love doing sessions at parks like this one, but for lots of other session locations, see this blog page here.
