This was such a fun shoot for both me AND my kids! Jessica is a teacher at our school (and was my daughter, Kendall’s, first grade teacher). My kids insisted that they both help me out on the shoot, which really came down to them wanting to hang out with their beloved teacher outside of school.
Jessica is truly a gifted teacher and still holds such a huge place in all of our hearts. She was so patient, kind, understanding — and most of all, loving — to Kendall and was one of those rare teachers that can see the beauty and uniqueness in a child’s personality (especially a personality as big as my Kendall’s!). 🙂
It was such an honor and a pleasure to shoot her beautiful family. Her kids are awesome – Gavin is practically a professional model and would offer up poses for me whenever he felt I needed help (how awesome is that?). And that Emma.. she made me work incredibly hard for smiles (which I secretly love!) and was so much fun when we finally got her laughing. And Jessica… what can I say… you are just wonderful!
Thanks Pinedo Family!!! xoxoxo!!
