On the morning of this shoot, I woke up to dreary, cold, cloudy skies. Not what most people are looking forward to when getting their family portraits taken. So I called my friend, Margaret, to see if she wanted to go ahead with it. After much deliberation we decided just to go with it and hope for the best. And amazingly, the dreariness lifted, it stopped looking like it was going to downpour any minute… and even though the sun didn’t come out much, our shoot went ahead – and I’m glad it did!
You might recognize this family from last year… I shot just the three kids previously, and this year I got to shoot the entire gorgeous Petrie family. They are so unbelievably great in front of the camera! I am always in awe of Gracie… she’s in 2nd grade, but she has this wise, calm aura about her. It’s so fun to capture it. Aidan, the oldest, is SO photogenic – my camera LOVES this kids eyes. And Graham — well, the only thing I can say about Graham is that he is just pure joy! I mean, try NOT to smile when you see this kid. He smiles and and he just lights up everything around him!
And I have to say a special thank you to Margaret… from the time I decided embrace my passion and start this career she has been SO supportive every step of the way. So THANK YOU!
Thanks again, Petrie Family! I loved every minute of it!
