Where do I begin with this post? Hmmm. Well, this family found me through searching the internet. Yay! I get excited about new clients and new friends. They wanted some maternity pictures done and hadn't gotten family pictures done in a while nor have they had this type of natural light, lifestyle type of session. Yay and double yay! But going into it, since we had never met and mainly did all of our pre-session planning via email, I really had no idea what to expect. By the end of our session, my heart was so full. I couldn't get home fast enough to upload their photos to my computer.
After sending location suggestions, this family decided to go to the ranch; my go-to location. Since there were no babies involved we decided to take a little adventure. We walked and walked and heard some coyotes, walked a little more, heard a lot of cows, and walked a little more until we found an abandoned house. They were up for anything and so was I. It was an old adobe style home with cool textures and perfect light. As we were finishing up though, we did see a bull approaching where we were staring us down. Again, the fam was totally cool, and I was...trying. Ha! By the time we were heading back to the orchards, the entire house was surrounded by cattle. Kind of crazy, for this city girl anyways.
After the house, we went to two other locations. It was so much fun. Little "C" or Bean as her paernts call her (hello! she is totally a "Bean!") was the sweetest little girl I've ever met. She laughed and posed and just interacted with her parents in the most tender way. She is going to be her new baby sister's best friend and such an amazing role model.
Thank you "D" family for being up for anything, for being so awesome and chill, and for letting me capture who YOU are! I loved every second of the planning process, the session and of course, editing. Can't wait to meet baby "R" in the Fall!
