One of my very most favorite things is having clients come back to have me photograph the important events in their lives. I especially love shooting a wedding and then doing an anniversary shoot, or a family shoot a few years later. It’s so much fun to catch up with people I come to regard as friends after being intimately involved in their life stories. I recently got to do this with one of my favorite couples (heck, they’re all favorites – so many wonderful people in this world). I took their wedding photographs a few years ago – you might remember them from this feature on Snippet & Ink and they just had a lovely little girl. At her wedding, Collen wore her mother’s dress & for her newborn baby girl’s shoot, we brainstormed and realized her Mom still had the family christening gown, so we took photos of her wearing that. I love folding in heirlooms into photos that hopefully become heirlooms too. I also shot part of this session on film – my love affair with old cameras & grain continues.
