I’d like to start this post off by saying, I ADORE THIS SESSION!!! About a month ago I was contacted by my friend Devona about doing a family session! As soon as the email came through I had an idea. Knowing this family, I was confident that they would go for it. I suggested a not so typical session, I suggested a “styled tea party”. After a consultation we decided that it would be a pinwheel theme, totally Devona’s idea. We then started a pinterest board for inspiration. And the rest is history, sort of. We each had a list of things we were responsible for. Devona had the biggest task, of making the girl’s dresses and pinwheels. My tasks included finding the right plates, figuring how to make/set up the table, and how to fit everything in my poor Jetta, etc. I also contacted my uber talented friend, Amanda (with baci – designer stationary & events) for some custom stationary/styling needed for the session. All three of us were pretty busy in order to make this shoot happen.
On the big day, I picked some of the things that Devona had made, filled my car with all the other items that I was responsible for and met Amanda at Indigo Lake. We then set it all up, or shall I say Amanda did most of the work while clumsy me stepped on one of sticks the pinwheels were on and was bleeding profusely. I carry band aids in my camera bag, for just these instances. Anywho, by the time the family arrived for their tea/cupcake party everything was set and ready to go.
I could not be happier with this outcome, they are the cutest family I have ever met. Totally ADORBS and the dog “Sherman” definitely takes this shoot to the next level. In case you might be wondering he’s the largest yellow lab ever, weighing in at 95 lbs. He was a bit upset with us since we brought him to a lake and wouldn’t let him get in it. It was a bit cruel, I must admit, but he did do great!
This was so much fun, hope to be doing many more of these soon. If you have an idea or would like to take part in a similar session, lets discuss and make it happen. Possibilities really are endless!
