Meteorological spring is here. March has arrived. The weather is doing crazy things over here in Massachusetts. We had +21C one day at the end of February. Felt like summer. And then before that we had two snow storms with 60cm of snow and it all melted within two weeks. All completely gone. If Mother Nature is done with winter lets start thinking about spring and summer.
I'll be announcing my spring session dates soon. So keep your eyes peeled for that information. on FB and also here in the blog. But before that lets go back to last summer and to this wonderful family session I had with our neighbours. Such lovely people. And I had the privilege to photograph also the grandparents who were visiting from India.
I was very lucky to have the mother of the family write a bit about their experience in front of my camera.
"Having seen your wonderful photography before, it was exciting to prepare for the photoshoot. We have only ever had in-studio pictures done before, so we were looking forward to more a more candid, comfortable experience, which you really delivered."
"Of course we know you, but I think regardless, your warmth makes you approachable for questions, like - what should we wear?! As a family photographer, it's important to be flexible, since kids' moods are unpredictable, and we appreciated your flexibility and ability to work with us."
"The session went really smoothly. I really appreciated that you took the time to research an appropriate location thoroughly ahead of time. In fact, thanks to our photo session, I now know of an arboretum that I never knew existed before this! In general, I appreciated the thoroughness of your preparations - location, poses, potential hurdles like weather and light, etc. I also felt that in directing us you anticipated most of our questions, which shows a great understanding of people and families, in particular."
"We loved the pictures, and they were prompt and very easy to access. I liked the amount of freedom I had once the pictures were in my hands, and I ALSO liked that you gave me a recommendation of where I could get some pictures printed in case I didn't want too much freedom ;-)."
"Thanks for a great experience, Christina! We recommended you to multiple friends who also enjoyed their pictures and experiences."
Thank YOU! It was an honor to capture your family pictures for you to treasure in future! I hope will have the chance to do it again soon.
