On the morning of July 4th I got together with some old friends of mine for a family session starting at their house and then ending up in the gardens of The Kreb's here in Skaneateles. Needless to say, thank goodness I am not a Sears photographer! As any on location photographer knows, when there are children involved and the great outdoors, they dictate and set the mood for the session! Which in my case I love. I love the unscripted scene and the freedom these types of shoots have and this is why I love what I do. It makes me feel free from all the stress in the world and in my head. It is also where you truly capture who they are that day, and you can either laugh or simply cry for mercy. For me, this is bliss and when the photos appear full screen on my monitor the eyes of the child just takes my breath away and I realized how lucky I am that I do what I do. Susan and Matt, thank you for letting me peek into your world that morning and capture who you are at this very moment. My thoughts are always with you.
