I loved doing the mini sessions this weekend! When I got to the field on Saturday morning, it was very cloudy and looked like it might rain. Luckily it held off until I was done with the last Saturday morning session. Then it proceeded to rain for the next couple of hours. I was a little worried that all the rain would make the field too wet for the Saturday evening sessions, but the sun came out and it was beautiful!
Thanks so much to all the families for coming out and letting me take pictures of you guys! It was great to meet some new people, and from a photography stand point, I feel like I learned a lot. I sometimes look at other photographer’s work and feel like I have so much to learn and so far to go, but I also think that photography is one of those things where I will never know everything! Every situation, every family, every child is so different. I am truly loving every photo session, and I feel so thankful that I have the opportunity to pursue this (and friends who come out and let me practice on them!)
It was a whole new challenge to photograph a 9 year old boy and his 7 month old puppy! Especially since there were several other people out there taking pictures, and KJ is quite the friendly puppy. He wants to say hi to everyone!
Next up was my niece and nephew. They were quite “googly” aka giddy, excited, and fun!
But they are so sweet, too.
First up in the afternoon was a new face. It took little M a little while to warm up to me, but we still got some cute shots.
We did a few with her new puppy, too. He was so cute!
You’ve seen these next family on my blog before. My friend Angela let me take pictures of her kids just before Christmas when I was thinking about starting up my photography business. They are such a beautiful family and so easy to photograph!
And finally, my last session of the day was one of Angela’s neighbors. I met Monica and her little boy at the park a few weeks ago, but this was my first time to meet her husband and daughter. They were so fun! My vast knowledge of Star Wars-The Clone Wars really helped me get some smiles out of the sweet kids.
I know I said it before, but I’ll say it again…I wish the bluebonnets lasted longer! In a few more weeks, this beautiful field will be gone until next year. Such a bummer.
