I really love spontaneous people! Mostly because I’m not really one for making plans but instead I have what I like to refer to as daily “adventures”.
I was contacted by a fellow photographer and told that she’d like to refer this wonderful family to me that she just couldn’t fit into her schedule after some bad luck with weather at their original shoot. I was giddy that she would think of me and glad about the the kicker, THEY WANTED PICTURES THE NEXT DAY!
There are times when I like to really prepare for a shoot but I have learned that when I take my camera out last minute I always end up with some great shots that I didn’t have to think too hard about! So for this reason, I like last minute shoots.
Immediately after meeting the Albertsons and the Colvins, I knew it would be a fun session. First of all, they are linked by sisters, and I always have a soft spot in my heart for sisters because being so far away from mine has been one of the toughest things a girl can do. It was actually the sister that was from out of town that emailed me inquiring about photos and wanting to set something up! Her family was only in town for a few more days and they wanted some family pictures to remember the trip by!
I also had a ton of fun with their spunky 3 year old! She had a huge personality and owned it! I love little girls like this…mainly because I was probably one of them.
We attempted to get a couple of pictures of the cousins! Each family has a 6 month old and this proved a little challenging!! I am so thankful for patient parents and a happy big sister/cousin who were all willing to cheer behind me to get them to focus and smile at the same time!
This is my last family shoot while living here in Germany. I am so thankful for all the families that have allowed me to capture some memories during their time here. I am forever grateful for the experiences and the fun times..and just for allowing me to hang out with your cool families for an hour or two!! I hope you all cherish those moments as much as I do!
