What do you get when you mix 2 Newlyweds + 1 fine batch of cocktails + 1 amusing teenager? Well, one mighty fine backyard party captured, of course! I love this session for so many reasons…let me name a few.
First….(and let me says this loudly): Your teenagers are worth capturing! While the ‘differences’ from 12 to 13 may not be as dramatic as 1 to 2, they exist. And those simply sweet (or sassy) gestures make this ma just a little weepy when I happily make these photos for a family. Next, so much love! I didn’t know until walking through the door that I was meeting NEWLYWEDS! So fun to capture the bit of over the moon found in their eyes. AND, can we talk about that summer afternoon light. As we are in the midst of the dark season here I’m going to just throw a little awe on that summer sun.
Life changes quickly. Don’t you forget it. Thanks Melissa and Jacob for taking me on your journey! There’s a reason everyone tells you that the days are long and the years are short.
(HINT: because it’s true).
