I've been meaning to blog these for weeks now, so here we areeeee. Let's just say these sessions set my anxiety through the roof. Not because I didn't WANT to do them, but this was a whole new thing for me. I have never rented a location and had sessions back to back like this. Without seeing the location in person + not knowing all of the clients coming to see me, well that alone had me hyperventilating a bit. Haha! I also imagined everything that could go wrong in my head over and over, that's normal, right? ;) I will openly tell the world, I am a spazz, but I love my job so I hope that makes up for it. In the end, this evening could not have gone more perfectly. Every single mama + the kiddos brought in some magic. The second the walked into the door they were instantly loving on each other and playing. I got insanely emotional after because again, SPAZZ. I am so grateful to each and every one of these beautiful mamas that booked these sessions. They filled up within 24 hours and it blew my mind, I was so scared I'd book a cabin and would be sitting in it alone. I should probably stop doubting myself so much, eh? Putting yourself out there is HARD but the reward is so worth it.
I know I've mentioned it a few times but I'm considering renting a location for the fall (September) to do family (dad included, though he doesn't have to be) sessions both indoor + outdoor (weather permitting). I've kiiiind of gotten a response but it hasn't been enough for me to jump the gun and put the deposit down. If you're interested in some sweet photographs like below, but a little longer session, please shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can get you on a list! Once I've had enough people interested then I'll put myself out there again and do it all over.
Again, thank you to everyone that showed up for these. You made my heart explode just a bit. ♥
P.S. - These are happening again next year!
