Every once in a while you meet a family that reminds you of every single reason you are a photographer. The M Family gets to hold the honour of that this year. I received a phone call from a friend from High School (I wanted to say old friend, but really, we aren’t old, so lets just say young friend from High School), I photographed her daughters sweet sixteen last year and she wanted to let me know she had passed my name along to one of her friends. I was thrilled with the phone call as I love recommendations and a friend of a friend, how great is that? Fast forward a day or so and I hear from the M Family, I am asked if I can swing by for a photo session, I let them know my really tight schedule for October and wonder if we can even make it happen. I offer up an early morning session and am thrilled that it can be done.
A gorgeous October morning, so warm I am still in my beloved skorts from Summer and there is even a little fog on the river. Fog is good and bad, good because we get gorgeous light, bad because you miss all the amazing colours in the trees across the river. But, we must forge ahead as time of the essence. I arrive and meet this amazing family and right away we clicked and I was reminded of exactly why I became a photographer. Those moments in time.
I want to share with you the M Family.
Thank you so much for inviting me to your home and sharing this special time with your family. I enjoyed every minute and I look forward to summer photos on your beach and a huge BBQ, which I may sneak in a camera for just to capture the amazing location. And thank you for reminding me why I chose to do what I do.
