we finally meet the mirco family! after trying to set a date last fall before i became super prego, and getting rained out each time, we were excited to hear from them again this summer saying they wanted to try for some photos this fall! we found what we felt would be the perfect location for their photos, and the picnic they wanted to have together as a family during the shoot. we were super pumped- everything was going great!
now i have to be embarrassingly honest with you. i kind of can't believe i'm about to share this but i just can't skip over it like it didn't happen. plus it's pretty hilarious. it's okay to laugh :) just as i was setting up the first group family photo i started backing up while looking through the viewfinder trying to line up the shot. in hind sight that was probably a bad idea. before i knew what was happening i was tripping over their picnic basket, feet flying up in the air, back on the ground. i imagine it looked like something out of a movie. all i could think was how glad i was that it was a little chilly that day and i had decided on wearing leggings under my dress. oh and how totally embarrassing that was. i'm pretty sure i was thinking about that. we laughed, took the pictures and everything went smoothly from there :) starting with a little picnic snack! we love when families want to do an activity together during a photo shoot. even if its just something small, it really makes people feel more at ease and relaxed doing something they already enjoy doing together. and it usually results in some pretty cool images too!
we love capturing people's expressions- especially the one's kids make. after becoming parents we've realized how special each little face they make is. you never really know when they are going to stop making that cute little side smile, or that face where they scrunch their nose up. so we like to preserve as many as possible so at least parents will have that to look back on long after those cute nose scrunches are gone.
it was also celia & bryan's 11th anniversary! how sweet is that? and how sweet are they together?!
