” You are what happened when I wished upon a star”
A little over 2 months ago I decided to have my first contest. I made everyone I know share and post about it. I was so happy to have had over 300 people enter. When I picked the name it wasn’t one that I recognized, so I eagerly searched for their entry on Facebook. There, pictured, was the most adorable baby boy, and beautiful mom and dad. I learned that Jenny Williams, my winner, was a first-time mom and this would be their first family picture session.
Jenny was a very planned mommy. A very important part of a session is clothing. Being coordinated is not always as easy as it seems. One of the things that I like to offer clients, especially ones that haven’t done family pictures before, or in a while, is a color chart. I find it’s very helpful to have a pattern or idea in mind before searching your closet or even going shopping. Well, Jenny took my advice and nailed it! Bright and colorful, in beautiful reds, blues and soft gray made for the perfect Christmas picture.
Our session ran a little longer than we had planned. I couldn’t stop taking pictures of this adorable little boy, all smiles and giggles. In the end you can see a new lovely family, so happy and excited to celebrate their first Christmas together as a family. I couldn’t be prouder to be the person to have captured it.
