So it's come to my attention that I somehow let two years worth of sessions slip by without blogging a single one of them. That's kind of embarrassing! I've never really been one to keep up with blogging, mostly because I don't have a good understanding of what to write and categories vs tags vs metadata. All of that is totally foreign to me so the thought of blogging is quite overwhelming. But since shooting has slowed down a bit as I approach maternity leave, I figured I'd try to play a little bit of catch up before baby number two arrives. I know I won't be able to blog nearly as many sessions as I should and that finding the time to blog will just become more elusive after baby's arrival, but I'm sure as heck going to give it a try for right now.
Ohh so what to say about the Taliaferro family. This was shot back in October 2016 in Linvilla Orchard's peach section. The peaches are one of my favorite places to shoot in the fall. Although the peaches of summer are long gone, the leaves begin to turn this gorgeous burnt orange and it just gets the prettiest sunset light ever. So pretty light + an extremely photogenic family?? Let's just say it was a really hard session to narrow down. Baby Cruz was a total ham and wanted to move move move so we kept it a pretty darn active session. I remember at once point having him stand in an oversized bucket just so I could keep him contained for a closeup picture. Success! Got my shot and then back on the move and playing with his sweet parents.
Last year I got an email from mom that they were going to be finalists on America's Funniest Videos and wanted permission to use one of the photos from this session as their potential winner's photo since they wouldn't be able to attend the taping. And you know what? They won!! Seeing my photo (well my photo of them) aired up there on national television was so cool!! Congrats again you guys!! Maybe it's a good thing I blogged this session so much later so I could add that awesome bit of information, huh?
