This Story all started when a Mom sat down at the wrong table ... a year ago, a group of moms went out for some Mom time and to see the Movie Bad Moms! While we were waiting and chatting this adorable woman walks up and asks if we are there for the Bad Moms Movie? We say "YES! have a seat and some snacks!!" Well, after about an hour, she realizes that we ARE NOT the group of Moms she was supposed to meet that night! But we were fun and she decided to stay. We had so much fun, and stayed after the movie to hang out and chat some more! Fast forward one year, and she is having another beautiful baby and she called ME! to photograph this part of her story for her.

The 'O' Family came to me from a fundraiser auction and I was so excited to finally get to meet someone who won a session by supporting one of our local schools! We had an amazing day in Monterey, the weather was beautiful and the location was so special location for portraits because it was where they were Married!
This week on "The Adventures of a Family Photographer" we get to take a look into what it is like to be a Family and Children's Photographer! When your co-workers are toddlers and elementary school aged children, it means you never know what is going to happen. You have to be able to think on your feet, and when things don't go according to all your careful planning, you have to be able to improvise and keep it FUN! This was just the case during the 'H' Family Photo Shoot.
No Matter how many times I ask this question, the answer remains along the same lines ... "When is the last time you and your husband had a portrait done?" (awkward side glance, pursed lips) "Uummmmm ... At our Wedding ...????" The actual wording might change, but this is pretty accurate for about 90% of my families. Which makes it all the more important to me to make sure I take a few minutes (while the kids run amok) and get some photos of mom and dad, NOT being mom and dad! Years may have passed, appearance may have begun to change, but put Mom and Dad in that first pose and you can see their beginning all over again.
