It was a busy week, I had 3 sessions during the week here in Florida and then, I had 5 family mini sessions and a flight to catch to Maryland for them. After my third session wrapped up on Tuesday, I started feeling terrible. I chalked it up to catching a cold from the busy season of sessions starting but before bed Tuesday night, I had a fever of 102 but I was freezing. Wednesday came and it wasn’t much better and I knew I was in trouble. After a brief appt with a doc, I found out I had the flu! I had a flight to catch Friday, so I was trying to get better and quick.
When I got on that plane Friday, I was a sweaty mess, but after antibiotics and no longer being contagious. Man, it was tough, I won’t lie- that was the hardest trip I’ve made but I knew I couldn’t let my families in Maryland down. I had been photographing many of them for years and this would not be the first year that I couldn’t. After getting as much rest as I could, the show was on and I have to tell you it was beyond worth it. There really is nothing better than seeing these families over and over for the last several years. I’ve watched these kids grow up some from babies to full blown toddlers, some into teenagers, and some of these couples were just newly married and recently welcomed new family members!
I met Leslie and Aidan when this little man was just a baby. He’s 4 now and I’m pretty sure he’s on his way to being the most charming guy ever. His mama is lucky to have him but what he doesn’t know yet is how amazing his mama is and how crazy lucky he is to have her too!
The Behe family has been photographed by me three times and they are so sweet and kind and fun together. Jen and Dan have three amazing and beautiful kids. They each chose a shirt representing something that was important for them over the last year and I love the thoughtfulness they put into this!
Michelle and Wyatt’s wedding a few years ago and now, little miss Sloane is adding some craziness to their mix! She has these adorably big cheeks and the most piercing blue eyes and it’s very clear how much she lights up her parents’ lives. They had rain on their engagement session day, and their wedding day but that stayed away this day- we broke that streak!
Autumn and Steve and mr. Benjamin joined me for the mini sessions and I was more than elated to meet this little guy since joining their family 6 months ago. He is so smiley and fun and it’s so exciting watching my past couples become parents. They are so in love with this blonde little dude and watching their family grow is pretty darn fun for me, too!
Brittany and Terrance first met me when I photographed their engagement session- after eloping to Costa Rica, they are back for their first married session looking gorgeous and glowing. I always love photographing these three because they are so perfect in front of the camera and we have great conversation! Thank you all so much for loving me and coming back year after year!
