This weekend was a complete blast..... words cannot even explain how much fun we had shooting at all the cool spots around town and spending time with each other talking photography and adoption. Most of the ladies who came to visit are also adoptive Moms and I absolutely adore them.
It has taken me a few days to recover from our action packed weekend.
Seriously, I can't believe how much we fit into two days.
You all have heard me say that I require very little sleep, but the last two nights I have been in bed by 8pm and slept straight through until 6am. When I do that, I know I am REALLY REALLY tired.
I woke up this morning feeling energized and finally ready to start sorting through some of my photos.
We had 6 shoots in total. All of them took place in Bethlehem except for our triplets. The girls and I took a field trip.... literally:)
We went to visit the field of dreams because the blue bells were still standing tall!!!
A few months back, I put out a note on my facebook page looking for models for this particular event.
As soon as I saw this darling trio, I knew we needed to fit them into our lineup and I am so glad we did.
These adorable little ladies totally knew how to work it for the camera.
Their momma is also an aspiring photographer and it did not phase them in the least to have 12 ladies with big cameras pointed at them.
In fact, they totally ate it up! I have never seen so much personality in my life. I have a new found respect for Maria, their Mom.
Keeping up with them on a daily basis must require some stamina.
One of the many things we learned this weekend was how to deal with things that happen that are out of your control. Early in the morning I was talking about ways to improvise when things happen that are unexpected. We had a couple things crop up that reinforced this lesson. This sweet girl was in tears just a few minutes before because she stepped on a little twig that scratched her foot. She was also a bit chilly (it was really windy all weekend) so we wrapped her up in a pretty blanket and gave her a break. As I saw her sitting there with the blanket wrapped around her, I thought it would make a great photo. Funny that this was never part of the original plan, but it is now one of my favorite photos of the day:) She was also ready to ditch that blanket and get back into the limelight with her two sisters moments later. What scratch?
We had shoots with a gorgeous ballerina, pretty little girls, a couple of cool dudes,
and a beautiful child who is about to receive her First Holy Communion.
On Friday I plan to share more photos..... I have only just begun to go through them.
I have also received a number of emails and messages about future photography weekends.
This weekend went so well and the feedback was very positive..... I am thinking about doing it again in the Fall when the leaves change.
It is my very favorite time of year for our area.
If you have an interest in attending, please email me as I have yet to firm up dates.
