I have to admit, I haven’t been looking forward to writing this blog post. Not because I don’t like it or the people or anything absurd like that, merely because I just don’t have the words. Much like with Chris + Jason’s wedding post, I am struggling to find the right words to express just how happy everything about this session made me. I spent the last little bit reading Chris + Jason’s wedding blog post as I was hoping to be able to steal bits of it or at least get inspiration from it, but all that has done has made me even more sappy – so I guess that kind of backfired.
Getting to meet, hold and photograph sweet little baby Cigi (short for Cassandra George in case you were wondering), was honestly such an amazing moment. I love getting to photograph all of our friends’ big milestones, but this one was just so extra special because Chris + Jason are such so extra special in our lives.
Sweet Little Hailey was the first newborn in the studio after the December 2020 to February 2021 lockdown. And I truly believe she knew that, and even more, she knew how badly I needed a really great session as a reward for waiting and worrying so long while I wasn’t able to work.
Little Ella showed up for her session a little sleepy, but somehow it still only took about 2 minutes before she was showing off those beautiful smile and her amazing walking skills! The latter of course meant that both myself and her parents spent that majority of the session catching her and putting her back in front of the background, but hey, that’s what cake smash sessions are all about!
I started shooting family session about a year after I started weddings, and honestly, I have loved every minute of it! Not only do I get to work with some of the best families and most hilarious kiddos, but I get to see our couples and families as they start and grow their families over the years! It really is such a treat to be able to watch these tiny babes grow into super fun kids full of spunk and personality! So with that all said, I think it is only fitting to wrap-up the 2020 year that was filled with so many wonderful family sessions!
As I talked about in yesterday’s post where we recapped a bit about our 2020 weddings, and really as everyone already knows because it was like this for the entire world, 2020 was a very different year for the business. And that difference included the blog. As a direct result of there being fewer weddings and family session, there were less blog posts. But for the posts that we did have you guys turned out to view and/or read them – so a huge thank you for that!!
