This family photo session was nothing short of perfection! I had a request, that I rarely receive, to take pictures of a family early in the morning. It was an easy session to agree to, and I am so glad that I did. The fog had begun rolling in early that morning, which added a natural, yet magical, aspect to the session.
This session in particular was special for me because it was of a dear family I have called friends for many years. The Bates family are precious people whom I have had the privilege of photographing before. As I’ve mentioned in past blogs, I love photographing my clients over the years and watching their life stories unfold, page by page.
As a photographer, I get different requests from my clients. The request to do a shoot early in the morning isn’t a common one, but it typically turns out so well! This one was no different. We left for the session at 5:30 AM. The temperatures were less than ideal as it was rather chilly, but the Bates family didn’t let that get in the way of capturing amazing pictures. The location was Cades Cove, and it did not disappoint! The scenery was breathtaking, and the lighting couldn’t have been more perfect. Morning sessions aren’t always the most popular, but they are so worth it!
When a session is booked, my clients have the opportunity to use my client closet. I love seeing my clients use the dresses I have on hand because I know how hard it can be finding the perfect outfit for family pictures. This takes a little stress off of my client, having the dress already on hand. My client closet is something open to all clients at no additional cost.
