Late November I had a chance to take pictures of little cutie pie named Layla and her sweet family. Layla was turning 1 and the intention was to take her 1-year photos as well as family pictures during their session. By family I mean the immediate family but this time also the extended family with grandparents and an auntie.
"I called Christina to set up a relatively last minute extended family photo shoot just before Thanksgiving. I hadn't really thought through any of the details other than we'd have out of town family all in town at the same time. When we met to talk through the process, Christina was fantastic in listening to what I was looking for and immediately had some ideas of locations. She provided some ideas of good color options, since I'm helpless when it comes to that and had no ideas walking into our meeting. After our meeting, I felt confident that we were in good hands, and trusted that Christina would help us through the entire process."
"The session was cold and windy, but that's what you get in late November! Christina managed the entire session well, and gave us breaks to warm up quickly before the next photos. She came to the session with clear ideas and talked us through everything. With a one year old, you never know what you're going to get, but Christina talked us through the different poses and all of them worked really well and Layla (by some miracle) cooperated."
"Once we got the whole family there, Christina was very efficient in moving through the multitude of photo combinations which helped minimize the time everyone was out in the cold and wind. She even brought some warm apple cider to help everyone warm up after the photos were over. We left the session feeling really great about the photos Christina captured and were anxiously awaiting the email telling us our photos were ready!"
"We were so excited to see the first couple sneak peek photos pop up on Christina's Facebook page, and couldn't wait to see the rest. Even though it was a busy time of year with everyone's holiday photos, Christina still got our pictures to us quickly. It was even in time for us to get them onto our holiday cards!"
"We were thrilled with the quality of the photos. Layla's pictures turned out so adorable - Christina captured so many special little moments and facial expressions. The photos of the extended family turned out incredible - it shows how much love there is in this family. We'll cherish these photos for a long time to come!"
Hearing back from a happy client is my driving force! I love what I do. I love to create family treasures as well as memories. In addition of having their family pictures taken, this family will forever remember how bitterly cold and windy it was that day but they were such troopers all of them. Thank you Family S. for letting me take your pictures!
