The biggest perks of running a portrait business is gaining friendships along the way! And why not? We, as photographers, become like family or trusted friends: We capture the most intimate sides of all emotions and it takes a lot of trust to allow a person into the soul of who we are.
This family is one I speak of. I have had the extreme pleasure to photograph the maternity, newborn and grow-up stages of their first born, and being invited back to experience their second is quite an honor!
Our session took us to breathtaking West Point where mom and dad wanted some intimate portraits of the both of them first. The dad found an amazing spot hidden on the beach of the Hudson River; a fallen, petrified tree. After we got some photos there we ventured over to a restricted area (shhh!); a helicopter landing. I loved this session because we found the unusual spots not typically used for photos in West Point.
After mom and dad portraits we headed over to a family friendly area and included their beautiful and sweet little girl for some family portraits. Full of life and curiosity, I have enjoyed every moment capturing her throughout these past (almost) two years! Hope you enjoy these as much as I enjoyed photographing them – stay tuned to meet their newest miracle, coming soon!
