So if you have ever looked at my blog before, you will recognize these folks. I feel like they are part family to me. We work together twice a year, in the spring and the fall, and every time I photograph them, I try to outdo our last photo shoot. As I went through these photos after our photo shoot, my first thought was “nailed it!”.
Let me tell you about our photo shoots. The kids jump out of the car and come and give me a tackle style hug. We do a lot of playing. Some games we’ve been playing for years and they look forward to them (such as the “telephone” game). I always try to come up with new ideas too. Our shoots can last a while, and we plan for this with snacks. We have a silly tradition that we end with before we get to shout “it’s a wrap!!!”. It really is like a family playdate. With a photographer there to capture it all!
These truly are the BEST that we’ve ever done! Everything was just right. I am so grateful for all of our amazing photo shoots. And can’t wait till Spring! I really need to start planning to make sure it’s as good as this 🙂
THANK YOU R FAMILY!!!
I adore taking pictures of this beautyfull child! She is such a little stunning fairy, with a sweet and gentle personality to go with her face. Can you even get enough of those curls?! Her mom told me that her dress was going to be pretty. And she wasn’t lying! She was dressed to perfection in a soft ballet dress and a little fur pillbox hat reminiscent of Jackie O 🙂 She is such a little classic beauty.
She is such an easy child to photograph, I could have kept going and going with making her portraits but had to reign it in. What a fun photo shoot.
Thank you so much again S family. Little Mme Z gets more and more jolie each time that I see her! I love being her photographer!
If you are at all familiar with Becca Bond Photography, you will most definitely recognize this family from many years worth of photos. I have been working with this Fort Mill family since their oldest daughter was just learning to walk. They are all such kind and sweet people with huge hearts and I love making their portraits every time that we work together. I didn’t want to post these before their Christmas cards went out, so now that they are delivered, here we go!
We got to use my fiance’s VW bug in these shots which was a lot of fun. I even got to drive it! Well, in the parking lot.
I love the connection that these sisters have. Their love for each other is so evident. They are two beautiful little girls!
Thank you T family for the many years of having me as your photographer.
<3 Love always
I have been working with this family since little F was a tiny babe. She is so sweet now with such a spunky little personality and it is evident that she ADORES her mom and dad. We met at Freedom Park on a weekday morning, which was nice because there was little crowd to dodge when photographing them! This really is one of my most favorite locations to take pictures in Charlotte. It was a great shoot and we have so many beautiful portraits. I had to share these 🙂
Hi all…. I am convinced this toddler is going to be a photographer when he grows up 🙂 I just have a feeling. He loves my camera bag and since his six month old shoot has been after it, my lenses and my gear! When he is a little bit older, I am going to show him how it all works.
I have worked with this family several times and the past three photo shoots were in their beautiful Charlotte home. This time, we decided to take it outdoors and I am so glad that we did. Baby A was as they say in the South “wide open”… that means he was all over the place, wanting to explore and run. Of course running toward the one thing we didn’t want him to run toward– the electric fence! So we played a lot of distraction games with him which worked out well.
This was a photo shoot where I really went with the flow. I directed them a little bit, but the best, most juicy and wonderfully expressive portraits came when I just let them be them! There was very little posing in this shoot. I just played with Baby A and he responded really well to my camera, giving me so many amazing expressions.
Once again, here is a family that I have watched grow. It makes me feel so close to these families, like an extended family of my own. My “phomily”– photography family 🙂
I am so excited to meet the new baby! These are good people, the world needs more of them so they’re making more!
Thank you H Family!
