In the beginning of March I decided to go in on a studio space. Seattle is notorious for our unpredictable weather and last minute cancellations for outdoor shoots. Our space is conveniently located in Magnuson park, so if we aim to shoot outside and the weather is nice, GREAT! But if it rains....we head into the studio! This day happened to be kind of damp and unpleasant. March showers bring April flowers, right?
Since March there have been many shoots, but this one is a special one for me.
This will now be the third photoshoot I have done with this bunch. The first was when Cam (their little boy) was around 2 - 3 years old, a few years back in my OLD Studio on greenwood. It is shoots like these that make you realize a few things.
The first thing you realize is how much time has gone by!! That studio I mentioned was from almost 3 years ago!! (EEK) Cam has told me he will be in the first grade soon, and that he loves being a big brother! Since their first photoshoot, we did a maternity session, and now a spring session with the family and their little one, Everleigh. I was so excited to meet her since last time I saw her, she was just a little bump!
The second thing you realize, and start to appreciate are your ongoing clients. The clients who keep coming back and who allow you in to watch their family grow. Its a very special feeling, and I am so lucky to have clients like this who value our professional relationship.
The last thing you realize is how much you have grown as a photographer. Each and every shoot I have done, I have learned something new. I am not sure if other photographers do this, but sometimes when booking a client, I'll go back to their galleries to view the images. When I look over their galleries, I pay attention to details, things we have shot before, location, and most importantly, how much my work has evolved since then!
Everleigh is a sweet baby girl who just wants to snuggle and be held. Do I get baby fever? No, except when she is around! Oh goodness, just too much cute. See for yourself!
