DeMoss Family Session
I remember the first time I met Ginger. We were at our local library and she was there with her son Cody. We talked for a while and she then mentioned she wanted to get some family pictures done. So I gave her my number. She messaged me that day asking if we wanted a play date since our kids were the same age. We met up several times and the boys played. Our boys ended up at the same preschool so we have gotten to know each other even more. This family is so kind. Their kids are so well behaved and respectful. When Ginger asked if I had availabilty in the fall I knew I hat to fit them in.
This session was far from my comfort zone. We ended up shooting midday due to our schedules which is something I never do. I also rarely work with teens so that was different for me, but I've really learned that I enjoy working with "kids" that age. Since I knew we were shooting at noon I picked a location that usually had great shade coverage. There were still plenty of leaves left on the trees, everywhere but where we met. As soon as I got there I gulped and had an "Uh oh" moment. So there we were in the full sun with not much shade to be found since all the leaves on the trees were gone. We made it work though. It would have been much harder had these kiddos not been so well behaved.
They did so much right, they were dressed perfectly, they brought a "handler" for their dog which is so smart, and they trusted me to do what I do. So thank you DeMoss family for making a less than perfect situation great. You guys rocked this.
I'm so lucky to work with such sweet families. -Rachael
