It was a chilly evening last November 5th. I waved to my clients as they arrived at the field. I hadn’t met them before but it was like we had known each other for years. The girls raced up to me with such joy and excitement, despite the dipping temperatures and wind that whipped our cheeks until they were pink. I remember their beaming faces smiling up at me as they handed me cookies as a gift and I was so touched by such a thoughtful gesture. When we discussed her vision beforehand, my client had told me how much the girls loved the images they had seen on my site and how they, too, wanted “magic” in their session. I promised we would have fun and I would bring some props that would hopefully inspire such a feeling. They let their imaginations run–and, oh, what imaginations they have! They kept me smiling and laughing the entire time. We shivered, but laughed it off and kept going until the sun went down behind the hill and there was no more light except for a candy colored glow that lingered on the horizon. It was like the sky hugged the earth with a warm hug–mirroring the way momma kept them warm for the final shot.
I do believe the girls had the magical time they had hoped for…..
