Remember this sweet little girl, Peyton? Well I had the privilege of photographing her with her whole family last month! It was a rough session for Peyton with all the wind and not getting a nap. She didn’t want to give us many smiles. But I was quick with my shutter to capture the few she did give us, and still think we got the most adorable photos of her and her parents!
You may recall my maternity session with Natalie back at the beginning of May. Well here is the next step in her story…Porter James was born at 1:00 am on Monday, May 27, 2013 at eight pounds ten ounces and 21.5 inches long. But more importantly he was beautiful.
This was my very first experience witnessing a birth – much less photographing one – and it was such a journey and blessing to be a part of it. I have never in my life seen someone so strong, determined, and proud. My weekend prior to this was filled with weddings, family sessions, and engagements. So this was a perfect finale to an already amazing weekend! It really brought to light my role as a photographer in my clients’ and friends’ lives. I truly started realizing the value to them and the blessing it is to me to capture their lives’ moments. I love my job, and I am so grateful for it!
So this was definitely a new approach than what I normally do for my engagement shoots, but I had so much fun with Sasha and Jason and this cool idea! This time the groom-to-be had a vision that we sought out to fulfill! And I think we were pretty darn successful! I was excited to challenge my skills and do something I haven’t done before. I’ve known these two for three years now, and I think this shoot reflects them perfectly, from the expensive taste to the silly laughs. We captured all the angles that make Sasha and Jason, Sasha and Jason! Thank you for letting me capture your engagement! Sasha and Jason will be getting married in Texas this November.
