Being a photographer is such a fast paced profession, never a dull moment, which I LOVE! I always love the last minute call from a close friend, with one day notice, asking if I can squeeze her in. I asked her if she could come out to St. Anthony on Main, as that’s where I would be shooting that evening. She was ecstatic that I could fit her in for a mini session!
“My girlfriend had her very first girls weekend in five years (since having kids) and I was able to hang out with her children for the few nights mommy was away. With her 30th birthday approaching I wanted to surprise her with great pictures of her kids. Jessica can always get the most natural smiles, so of course I had to call her the night before begging her for an impromptu session. She always delivers!!!” -Angelle
Can this get any sweeter? Yes, yes it can. These two beautiful kids were so easy to photograph and so sweet. I am not sure who had more fun, me or them! I see why Angelle wanted to capture them! This is such a wonderful gift and it was so thoughtful of Angelle to think of me to capture these moments for this mom! I hope you LOVE your surprise photo shoot Crystal!
Meet the Vander Laan Family! This session was a fly-at-the-seat-of-my-pants session, praying that the weather would hold out just long enough to get the full time in. It started to sprinkle during a little, but it actually wasn’t too bad. It was so hot and sticky so the light drizzle was wonderful to cool us down a bit. We moved to a field nearby to continue our session and get some different shots. This is where I thought I would take out my new pretty gold chair. I set it down and heard a snap!!! I looked down and realized one of the legs broke… I was super devastated, since this was going to be perfect for this session! But, a ray of sunshine poked through and we were able to rig something together to make it work- the kiddos and even dad was able to sit on it anyways!
But don’t worry, if you love the chair it will be back in business by Monday, my wonderful husband is going to fix it for me. I couldn’t have asked for a more patient and easy-going family, I hope to see them again soon!
