Photographing Fadua and Carl's family was such a treat. They chose a local city park as their location, which was an absolutely beautiful spot for portraits. Fadua found my photography services through the Thumbtack website. Thumbtack is a fantastic tool for photographers of every shape and size. If you haven't heard of it- I highly suggest checking it out! From needing good holiday card photos to finding a licensed accountant to help you with your taxes- this website is my everything.
Fadua and Carl brought a soccer ball for their son to play with, which is brilliant. Having toys allows for some amazing candid shots, plus it keeps your little one active and engaged with the photo session. The session honestly just felt like playtime for all of us. We kicked around the ball, we walked around the park, and we got baby Carmina to give us some big smiles. Luckily the rain held out until the last minute and we got a full session in. Having an overcast day actually works in the photographer's favor. Why? Because we can adjust the settings on our cameras with a lot more ease. It also works out in the client's favor too because the whole session isn't spent squinting into the sun! The photos turned out wonderfully. Fadua and Carl were so pleased as was I. When you can get the little ones to have a good time, you know you have done your job!
