It was just a lovely day on this shoot. Texas in August is notoriously HOT. But, we had a breeze and shade and snacks! Snacks are oh so important for a family session. Cheese and crackers makes everyone happy!
We did this shoot further into San Antonio by The Pearly Brewery. Such an awesome area. Great colors. Awesome architecture. Really neat for an urban session like this one. I'm always glad when clients want their location to be urban. I love the lines it gives to the photos. And the colors just pop in this session!
This is the Moos family. Mom and Dad are children's pastors. Such wonderful loving people. And Gracie is an aspiring professional jumper! Little Gracie just loved to show the camera how high she could jump! I was super impressed. She can jump…….a LOT. Me, not so much anymore. Three cheers for getting old!!!!
Yes, there was a lot of jumping. But hey, I encourage jumping in my sessions. Jumping equals movement and best of all…smiles!! You can't jump and not smile, it's almost impossible. Jumping equals happy, and I love to see happy faces in my session. Look at Gracie! She's one happy camper. Crackers and cheese and jumping did the trick!
I can hear all the "awwwww's" . I gasped at these photos. The curls, the lashes, the bright twinkling blue eyes! This little girl is just too too precious! Her cheeks, her cute little nose! I can't. It's too much. I was so happy to have her in front of my camera.
I just love it when Mom and Dad get a moment alone together. Mom and Dad are always thinking about the kids. Mom and Dad rarely give themselves a chance to stop and remember why those kids were made in the first place. Remember in the beginning when it was just you two? Remember when you got to gaze into each others eyes for hours, not just seconds, if at all? Yeah, you remember. When I get to see that moment happening in front of me, the remembering, it's just magic. Gosh, I love my job. These images just ooze love.
Thank you, Moos family, for expressing your love for each other in front of my camera. Just LOOK at you guys! So beautiful! What a beautiful day we had and beautiful moments we made. Oh, and there will be more of these faces gracing this bolt, for sure!
