Hello again everyone – it’s 2018! Last year was an absolute whirlwind for me as we went through some very significant changes. First of all, my husband retired 100%!!! That meant that he finally had time to relax, travel, and DO ALL THE THINGS! We decided to downsize a little sooner than we originally planned when we found a nearby house that was a good fit for us, so we purged – packed – sold our house and moved at the end of August. We had entertained so many large groups of friends and family over the past 10 years and had a blast doing it, but now we are ready for less work and more freedom to travel. We have so many fun things planned, and I just know this year is going to be GREAT!
My photography business is still very much an important part of my life, and I love it even more now that I have transitioned primarily into my favorite niche…extended families! I absolutely love capturing images of parents and grandparents with their little ones, and especially large family groups vacationing here on Lake Keowee.
This session was typical for me…a Thanksgiving family gathering at the lake home of their parents, traveling in from all parts of the country to be together for a short period of time. They had all of the normal and understandable concerns: would the babies be able to adjust from their disrupted routine, would everyone be able to be ready at the same time, would the weather cooperate, etc. It can seem like such a huge undertaking when you start thinking about all of the details and planning!
We stayed in touch in the weeks and days leading up to the session, picked the time/date that seemed to work the best, and did the session on a lovely sunny day. We planned for a minisession, thinking the kids wouldn’t last long, but we were able to get many more images than anyone had hoped for! Most importantly, we captured the children with the people who absolutely adore them…and those images are priceless!
If YOUR family will be visiting you here in the upstate of South Carolina this year, you should really take advantage of the opportunity to capture precious images like these of your loved ones. You will never regret having professional images that capture the beauty of your family and relationships…they deserve nothing less. You can see more images like this in my LARGE FAMILY GROUPS gallery and my GRANDPARENTS AND KIDS gallery.
