If you had asked me last week what my “least” favorite thing to photograph was, I probably would have said adults! Boring! No fun! Not fun to pose! Etc, etc, etc! I’ve been shooting a lot of newborn sessions lately and I just love babies so much that even though those session are a lot of work, I look forward to them. And the challenge of toddlers excites me! But how was I going to loosen up this couple so the photos didn’t turn out too posed?
Shake it off Renee! Get out of your car and go meet them! After all, Lynn seemed nice enough on the phone.
Let’s just say, instant connection!! They had a nice home, were friendly and casually stylish! Even Ron didn’t seem to mind that Lynn had scheduled a session for the two of them. Ok, it’s going good……
……but, then they invited me in to see all their “photo walls” and to see their most recent photos of their cutie-patootie grand-daughters! They were professional portraits done by an out of town photographer and they raved and raved about how much they loved them! OK, talking about pressure!! I don’t like shooting adults and now I have to meet or exceed the expectations put on me by the other photographer! Oh my goodness!
They bought my session at a benefit fundraising auction and I was there to take photos of them, so we headed into their yard. I will admit to having thoughts of, “well, I might as well get this over with!”
Fortunately to my delight, I ended up by LOVING this session!! Ron and Lynn, you are just an adorable couple! I loved your kindness, sense of humor, the love that you share and your property is every photographers dream location!
Here’s a little “sneak peak” for you. I hope I didn’t disappoint! I’ll have the rest of your gallery ready for you in a few days!
