There is a first for everything... and it was DEFINITELY a first for me to take a picture involving 19 people! And with most firsts, there is often a lot to be learned. That. I certainly did. Managing 19 people was surprisingly the easy part for me! It was getting used to some new camera settings while juggling framing, focusing issues, oh....and the wind, that was a new and fun experience for me!
Now....I go way back with this family to some elementary school memories (let's just say the names Jake and Charlie:). Then, more recently... coaching club volleyball, teaching Sunday school class, church, and so on. I'm grateful for the comfort and trust that goes along with knowing them! Being comfortable and natural (on both of our ends) really helped in producing some great shots!
And to top it off, it doesn't hurt that they're a darn good looking group!
These next couple of shots just flat out make me smile! While I'm definitely going to get those posed shots for a family; I have to admit, those candid shots that really show YOU are BY FAR my favorite!!! Here are just some that I am enjoying...and YES this family has some serious fun!
Thank you Nancy for asking me to come capture some memories for your family! Despite the awkwardly windy & cold night; I feel we came away with some winner shots!! I hope you can enjoy these pictures for years to come!
