Those that know me personally know that I no longer market my business for photography sessions. I am more-so focused on the wall decor aspect of my business, however, if a client reaches out to me wanting a shoot, of course I'm on board!
Shalon's mother contacted me via the Nextdoor app requesting information on a maternity shoot. A few days later, i was giving a free consultation to Shalon and her sister, whom I met at Milly's Community Cafe, one of my favorite locally owned coffee shops. We got along well, and her session was booked for April 10, 2022 at Chautauqua Park.
Shalon, her mother, and her son showed up at Chautauqua Park with Shalon looking like a freaking Goddess.
Now, let me tell you a bit about the weather that day. We had had a series of warm days leading up to April 10th, but on the day of her photoshoot the temperature dropped to 45 degrees. The 45 degrees was already chilly enough, as you can imagine, but it was also incredibly windy.
She was very cold, but she handled it like a boss! I mentioned to her that while the wind was making her suffer a bit, the photographs were absolutely not suffering. The wind was the cherry on top of an already beautiful session.
I was so impressed with her confidence in herself. She absolutely nailed the poses and was quite literally picture perfect.
Her son popped in for a few pictures which was absolutely magical. He looked positively like a royal enjoying a leisure day.
