Today the blog is back and it’s featuring US! I love editing photos of all of your sweet families, but there is nothing I like better than seeing my own favorite people on this screen! Today’s blog is going to feature my favorites from our family photos, taken by the lovely and talented Emily Netti!
Emily and I have been friends for a few years now and she played a huge role in me starting this business. She sat with me and answered endless questions when I was first starting out (everything from “I don’t know what this button does on my camera” to “how do you deliver client images”) and even let me second shoot weddings with her. We’ve gotten to work together quite a few times over the years, but this was definitely the most fun project yet!
After months of planning and rescheduling (hello, wedding season!), we finally were able to meet up and swap family photos. You guys probably know that the Lorenzo State Historic Site is my FAVORITE place to do photos, so it was a no-brainer location choice! We wandered all over the estate, cameras in hand, first doing photos of my family, then of Emily and her husband Luke. Guys, it was such a blast!
This was my first real experience in front of the camera in a long time. I really got to see what it was like to be in my clients shoes! Photographing two small kids is not easy, but Emily was so enthusiastic that my kids felt like they were playing more than getting photos taken. Plus, she made sure to get some of just Caleb and I, which was a real treat. Looking at all the photos I’ve definitely teared up a few times!
