My session with this family was their first EVER professional photo session. I photographed their kids way back when, during a Valentine’s mini, when I was just a newbie photographer. I’m glad that they chose me to be the photographer to capture their first round of family photos. Mom wanted a more ‘urban’ look to her photos, which is not the normal type of session my clients usually want, so it was fun to expand my ‘box’ and bounce around Downtown Kennewick for their photos.
Then we tried to hit the desert scene. It was annoyingly windy, so we didn’t have much luck. However, sometimes I shoot ‘from the hip.’ Meaning, I literally let my camera hang from the strap around my neck, I ‘aim’, focus, and shoot. This was one of the images I captured as we were heading back to the cars, and I instantly fell in love. My Daughter asks me for ‘piggies’ every night at bedtime, so maybe that’s why it hit so hard to my heart.
