My favorite thing about being a family photographer is meeting new people. Although I am quite the introvert (most of you probably know that about me, for those who did not know it, I probably just hid it well when we are together), seeing families interacting together fascinates me. People actually fascinate me. Their life stories, challenges, victories…it is all super intriguing to me. I really love it when I can connect with families also.
Connecting with this ADORABLE little family was easy. Amy found me on a Facebook group and decided to book her family/maternity photos with me, which I was so excited about. As I got to know this family a little more I found out that they are originally from the midwest (just like me!), from Michigan. They are stationed out here in Southern California because Shane is in the United States Marine Corp. Being a veteran myself, I just feel like I truly connected with them. Also it brings me great joy to photograph a brother and/or sister of the military, after all the military is a unique vibe that brings us all together and makes us family-like. Because most of the time you are far away from your own families, the military families become your family. They did assure me that even after the military they wanted to reside in GORGEOUS Orange County, California which I honestly cannot blame them (after all, this midwest girl moved here about 11 years ago and I am never going back, ha ha).
I loved this session, the sunset was amazing…one of my MOST favorite locations and the B family’s laid back, sweet attitudes made this session beautiful. I loved capturing this special time in their life and hope I get to also photograph their little new bundle when she arrives this year.
