I cannot fully explain how it feels when someone you love dearly, respect and know personally asks you to photograph him/her. Very honest statement ahead: it’s a mix of excitement and nerves. Yes, nerves.
I always want to provide my very best, on all levels, so my people walk away with something that makes them smile and feel good. That sense of making things beautiful and great, every single time, is amplified when it’s something I know personally. There’s a few levels to this. The always-there-with-everyone-feeling I just spoke about, also when it’s someone I know virtually but not in person, and then there are those that I’ve known half my life (if not all, such as family!) when both excitement and nerves are at crazy levels.
There was no exception to the rule, when the day came to photograph and document the beauty that is starting a family for Angie & Danny. I am incredibly grateful to my friends that trust me with such special times in their lives. Happy to have been able to work together, on such a gorgeous day too! Semi-chilly mornings on the beach just make for all the feel-goods and I’m so glad I was able to get that on camera for them to keep and look back on forever. <3 These two made my job easy, and the nerves lifted quickly. Doesn’t mean it won’t happen again though. Haha.
Jr. is due any moment now and I’m anxious to meet him already! I can’t wait until he’s here! Here are some highlights from our morning together.
