This particular family knows how to have fun together. I first photographed brother and sister two years ago when I was just starting out. This time, the whole family showed up, including a new little sister.
The kids played, romped, twirled, swung, laughed and cuddled their way through the session. And near the end of the session, with their encouragement, I tasted a “fiddlehead” — the brand new curled bud at the tip of a fern’s new-growth. It tasted like spinach. Earthy and green. Except it was crunchy. (And then this week at Trader Joe’s, I actually saw of bag of fiddleheads in the produce section!)
This family will soon be leaving Rochester for new adventures out west. Together. Because that’s what matters.
An assignment a day for 28 days. The Joy of Love, from Willette Designs.
Day 24 assignment: where.
Where I met my first two children. A study in contrasts.
#1: in an operating room, unfortunately. He was breech, but healthy.
#2: at home, in a planned waterbirth with a midwife, my husband, a doula, my parents and my son. No, it wasn’t weird; it was wonderful. Yes, it hurt. And yes, I would do it again.
If you’ve been wanting to schedule a portrait session with me, NOW is the time to call! As of April 1, my session fee will increase to $25.
But I don’t want to leave you without a little gift. If you call me by March 15 and schedule your session by May 1, you can still get my free session fee. Plus, you will automatically get 50% off all future session fees for life! You will always pay HALF of what others pay, but you need to call me by March 15 and your session must occur by May 1 to get this deal.
Portrait sessions can be outside, in your home, or at one of your favorite locations. Call me for ideas — there are lots of places to go in and around Rochester, even in winter!
