Every once in a while I cross paths with people during random photography-related happenings and they make an impression.
This time, it happened twice.
I met Julie (Sydney’s mom), Jami and Jenna (aunties) the first time at a wedding I shot earlier in the summer…They are the kind of people that when parting ways, I have a little blip of sadness on my radar because I realize I very well might not see them again (this is especially true at weddings). These three women greet everyone with open arms; they are as genuine as they come and it’s hard not smile when chatting with them.
As per usual, I am attracted to babies and kids at weddings. I gravitate to them. If I didn’t pay attention, I’d miss the cake cutting and the first dance because I was too busy taking photos of aunt so-and-so’s adorable toddler. Little Sydney caught my eye at that wedding, and then AGAIN at another wedding I shot where the whole fam was present.
These three sisters and their love for this little girl are totally overwhelming. Sydney is lucky in many ways…I’ve seen firsthand the kind of people in her life and they are all pretty much fabulous.
When I got a contact form message on my blog and it was the lovely Ferren sisters wanting to get photos of Miss Syd, I smiled.
I sincerely hope I get to see this family again…I may just start crashing their family events now. Wait, what? You didn’t hire a photographer? Oh. Whoops.
