Meet the Feltons. They are friends of David and Laura. They are word-of-mouth clients, which I LOVE! I was super excited to hear from them about photos because we had tried last year, but some personal health issues rained on that happy parade of an idea. Still, what is to be will often be, regardless, and so a year later, we finally met up.
They make a great looking family with quite a beautiful lady in their midst, if I do say so myself (and I do!). We got to work right away, and I just love the end results. More, I love that even though this session took place a few months ago, I can remember conversations based on different photos. I always imagine that if I can remember the jokes, the laughter, the lovely moments, surely the photos mean even more to each person in them.
This was actually a combo session — family and senior pictures — and I think you might agree this particular senior favors a certain Johnny Depp in his younger years. Yes, it’s true — I AM the photographer of the (people who resemble) stars!
Sometimes what can happen in the middle of a session is, the clients might start getting too tense again, so we’ll try to loosen up. “Time to make funny faces!” I said. As you can see, Mom was the only one who was willing to participate. By the end, Dad said, “Oh, you’re serious? We’re making faces?” I’m ALWAYS serious about making faces. So, he jumped in for the fun, while the boys just weren’t into it at all.
It is always my aim to capture moments with moms and dads, and thankfully there were no objections (there actually often are, due to parents often wanting the attention on either the whole family or just the children, but parents are important, too!).
Our session was originally scheduled for slightly later in the day, but we moved it up for their convenience. Turns out, this was because there was a certain football game coming on and SOMEONE is a huge FSU fan.
I…am not. I grew up a Gators fan, and those teams are rivals. So, I tried sooooo hard to get him to crack up while taking the last of the pictures by telling him how much I loved the Gators. This was as close as I came. Dang, he was making me work for it!
Just so we’re clear, I still don’t like your team!
We had a beautiful time at Fox Run Park with perfect weather and tons of laughs. Thank you, Feltons, for the memories!
