Driving on country roads…it was 17 degrees out and the sun was rising. I was on my way to Augusta, Georgia to meet up with the Stoller Family, sipping my coffee and enjoying the scenery. For some reason, I thought it would be a good idea to wash my windshield while the temps were still in the freezing range. Well it wasn’t. I laughed at myself because being that I grew up in cold country, I should know this right? Once I got the thin layer of ice off my window I began to reflect on just how long it has been since I have known Jennifer and George. On the day of Jennifer’s bridal session, she brought along her dad. Often times the moms will come along, but this time it was dad and I thought it was pretty cool. I put him to work holding the reflector and he soon earned the name “reflector dad”. That is something I will always remember…I will remember how he was watching his little girl in awe while managing to assist on the shoot. SO CUTE!! Well now, Jennifer & George are welcoming their own little girl to the world and I was there to capture her first days. One of the best parts was that little Dean is now comfortable around me and I get hugs and even get to sit and use his plastic tools to build things.
I am not sure that I am able to convey just how awesome it is for me as a photographer to be able to capture BIG milestones in people’s lives. It makes me both smile and get teary…such an honor. So, welcome baby Jillian!!! I cannot wait for our next session to see how you have grown. You have a fabulous big brother by the way!
Thank you for stopping by!
