This is exactly the time of year when I am reminded of the family and friends that we have in our lives that we may not see often but make sure to keep in touch with as the holidays and yearly celebrations begin. We take more time to travel, visit and reminisce with people that mean so much to our history, our present and our future.
I have to admit I am not one of the rare photographers that like having their photograph taken, but this year while I was home over Labor Day weekend I had a change of heart. My mom hired a professional photographer like myself to do family portraits. Aside from feeling awkward at first in front of the camera, I wanted to be behind it. I wanted to be the one capturing those moments of laughter with my family, like the silly faces that my nephews make when they are just about done with having their 200th photograph taken. As the early evening went on, I found myself so appreciative of our photographer because she allowed me to be a part of the process. I was able to be captured the same way that I capture people while I am doing a family portrait session, it was really wonderful.
So I came back even more excited to get started this fall! I am looking forward to capturing those meaningful, silly and candid moments between families in the Bay Area in the next few months!
