Maegan and I go way back to when Bellini Portraits was in it’s infancy stage. It was 2008 and I was just a year full time in business when she contacted me to photograph her daughter’s 6 month photos. I had made the transition from film to digital and at that point I didn’t even use Photoshop to edit images (gasp). I shot what I shot and that was it. It was the film mentality, I guess, because you shoot, you develop and you print. That’s it. Of course, these days you can shoot film and get digital copies and edit those files as you like but that’s wasn’t how we did “back then”. Fast forward to 2015 and now I have photographed all 3 of her children from the time they were babies, as well as her gorgeous step-daughter–a Leelee Sobieski doppelganger. She wasn’t there for this shoot but we are definitely planning a shoot with the entire gang this year. We had a lot of fun this evening last August. Although mom had her hands and (sore) arms full the entire time I am quite sure her heart was as well.
