On the first Saturday of 2018, I had my first photo session of the new year as Bhargavi and her husband visited my studio. I'm hoping that this is first of many portrait sessions that I have this year. In fact, one of my resolutions for this year is to have at least one portrait session per week. I haven't quite settled on who I will be photographing this week, but I surely have some ideas for people to contact.
There were definitely times when I thought that this photo session would never happen, but it finally all came together in early September. It was a few years ago when my good friends, Mario and Teresa, first talked about having a photo session with me. While I was initially optimistic, over time talk of having this photo session seemed to quiet down and disappear. Then this past summer, I was caught off guard when Teresa told me that she was interested in having a photo session. While we may have put this off for quite a while, I was happy that we managed to get this photo session. In fact, this photo shoot was just a few days before their daughter, Ely, was born.
I can't believe that this maternity session happened 3 weeks ago now. I remember being persistent about keeping an eye on the weather in hopes of having a beautiful sunset photo session on the beach. While the weather itself was a little on the cool side, we were blessed with some gorgeous late in the day light for this session.
