Ripon Family Photos Ripon CA Tracy CA child and family photographer
Amanda first approached me about doing family photos after she saw some other family photos I had done of a friend of hers. Have I mentioned referrals like that are my favorite? Cause they are! 🙂
So, we started planning her family session last November, but then the holidays were upon us and she decided to push them off until spring. It worked out great that we did. The weather was nice and trees and plants were just starting to turn green again. We met in Ripon near the river for their photos. Three siblings, their 2 kiddos, and mom and dad. Dad was a little surprised when he showed up for outdoor photos…expecting an indoor photo studio. I think he may have been a little skeptical when I told him the whole great outdoors is my studio…but I think I won him over, especially after he was able to see the photos once we were done. Yay! A new outdoor photography fan! Nothing against studios at all…I just prefer nature. 😉
The kids did great and smiled on cue, the mosquitos were out, but not too over-the-top awful, and I think the grown-ups had a pretty good time without getting too stressed out (cooperative kids definitely helped with that part). I had a lot of fun with this family, and their photos turned out beautifully. I love when clients come in for their ordering appointments after their session, and just can’t decide on photos because they “like them all”. It means I’ve done my job and hearing that just makes my day. Seeing happy faces and teary eyes (happy tears, that is) is my favorite part of this job.
Thank you, Amanda, for choosing me to do your family photos.
