Here’s a fun fact about the Draper family… They were one of the first portrait sessions I ever shot alongside Albert Rovey when I was just starting out. I’m going to guess about 11ish years ago? It was actually their engagement session! Look at them now with three beautiful children! They’re a really fun family and outside of photography I’ve had the pleasure of working with them since they own an apparel design company and they do a fantastic screen printing job.
It really was a joy photographing this family after so many years and had me reminiscing about when I first started out in photography. I’ve been passionate about photography for many many years about it was about 10-11 years ago that I started to take it seriously. I appreciate all the help I was offered by fellow photographer Albert in the early days. He even let me borrow gear for my very first wedding I was shooting on my own! Because of this, I like to take the time to encourage new photographers in their work and help as much as I can (though I won’t be loaning out gear anytime soon). If you’re in my area and have an interest in photography, don’t be shy! I’d love to hear from you 🙂
I’ve known Sara for quite a few years now and was excited to do her senior photos for her! It was SUCH a windy day and they trusted me to go ahead with the shoot. It’s funny because Sara seemed so worried about the wind and was planning on rescheduling. I looked out my window and thought “wimp.” It wasn’t that windy. What a difference a few miles makes though! The wind nearly blew her away at times! It worked out perfect though because her hair looked fabulous.
Can I say how much I’m enjoying photographing seniors? I have a few more on the books at the moment but would love to take some more! Parents and seniors, let me know if you’re interested in booking a session! There’s not much time left now!
