Referrals have been the true basis of the growth of my business. They are not only the highest compliment a photographer can receive but it also means that they enjoyed my work so much they just had to have a photography by Carlise original This makes me smile – THANK YOU for this!
This couple and soon-to-be family of three (four including their sweet little pooch) were so incredibly sweet and trusting of me. A handsome and sweet daddy greeted me and the mommy was stunning! I chatted briefly with both while I got my equipment ready and looked around their gorgeous home! Kisses and playful licks also accompanied me as their puppy was getting to know me.
We started in the bedroom because I wanted them to be in a comfortable environment as we got to know each other, my shooting style and my coachings. The light was subtle but pretty and I loved the calming effect it had. Then we went to the living room where I was able to shoot from the upstairs landing and enjoy the afternoon light coming in their big window. then we headed in the 20 degree cold! After 5 minutes mommy started tearing and I felt I had a handful of outdoor keeper images so I was good.
Mommy decided she wanted to do a little boudoir so we utilized the big window in the living room again but this time the afternoon glow started to shine through, I was so excited for this! Then we headed back upstairs to get our most intimate images of the session (and some of my very favorites).
I had a blast and was thrilled that my couple were so accommodating and willing to try lots of things. But, most of all, I am thankful for the trust and appreciation they had for me and my work! I cannot wait until their baby arrives!
