When a family shows me loyalty year after year, it warms my heart. Yes, there are a zillion photographers in our area, but deveoping a lasting relationship and providing top quality images are what I strive for all my customers.
Meet Jessica and Jarod Mathias.
Jessica called me over 4 years ago when she was pregnant with her daughter. They had a little boy already but she wanted some family/maternity photos. I have been shooting their images ever since.
So, what I’m posting about today is the change children make in just one year. It’s a good thing to do family photos EVERY year – especially around this time of year when the air is cool and you can wear layers.
In 2013 we did an urban session (photo below) when Aubrey was only 3 years old and still a little shy. We used True Blue, my 56 Chevy Truck as a prop because Jarod loves Classic vehicles.
These photos are fun, colorful and really showcase the love and tenderness these kids have for one another. Not to mention the affection mom and dad have for each other. I just love that. And I love that Jessica isn’t afraid of bold colorful colors.
Now, fast forward one year to last week’s session – the kids are older, bigger and we still capture the same love, affection and family unit in a park setting with little use of props during a mini session. Clients chose a more muted color scheme to offset the bright green scenery. I love the attention to detail Jessica has – from the hair accessories, to the boots on Aubrey with the leopard trim. These details make portraits so much more interesting.
I still have a few Fall Family sessions available – specifically on November 22 and November 29th. If you are wanting priceless images, please call me at 918-704-4399.
