Maybe the F stands for FAVORITE. Because they really have become favorite clients of mine. I have shot them twice in the past year, this being the third…and they have 3 more sessions scheduled in the next 9 months.
But beyond that, as I’ve noted in their previous shoots, I just really like them as people.And Laura found herself pregnant with their second daughter (Precious KATE!!) about the same time I found out I was expecting. So we have further bonded with having kiddos only weeks apart. (I couldn’t do their newborn pics because alas, I was on my own maternity leave!!)
I’m an honest person, so I will say this was a challenging session in that it kept me on my toes, on the move. Adelyn, who in the past, has proven to be an angel of a model for me, has reached the age I warn/joke with parents about. The age that is nearly impossible to photograph. She didn’t disappoint us in that expectation. But with patient parents, a rather sunshiney baby sister, and a photographer who was bound determined to make it happen for such wonderful clients, we came away with some genuine keepers. I would like to point out too that two of the reasons I adore clients like the Fs are: they don’t define perfection as traditional family photos with all smiles, and secondly, Laura always emails me after they see their full gallery with her notes on what pics were their favorites. I love hearing that because it gets me to see the images through THEIR eyes, not just mine. Oddly enough, I agreed! (because seriously, so often my faves are rarely the client’s) .
