My kids' preschool had an auction for a fundraiser a few months back. I was so happy to donate a free photo session!
It turns out the winner and I went to high school together but didn't really know each other. PLUS we have a close mutual friend. I'm always amazed at how small this world is. I think my favorite thing is when I friend a new person on facebook to find that we have a mutual friend that is totally unrelated to how we know each other.
The "O" family met me up in Gloucester on the back shore. I had my wedding on the back shore of Gloucester and had some of my photos done on the beautiful rocky coast so I knew it was a great location. The only downside was it was VERY sunny and the sun was high.
But look at how cute these kids are!!! My daughter has red hair so I'm a little partial to red heads.
I was able to make a back lit shot work with no shadows on their faces but again with the squinting. I do love this picture though!
I knew of this other location downtown (Captain Soloman Jacobs Park where I met George Clooney and Mark Wahlberg while they were filming The Perfect Storm) from when I used to work in Gloucester so we gave that a try. It definitely allowed for some more shady spots and I was really happy with the results we got there.
This was my best attempt at all three of the boys. I'm sure y'all know how super cooperative 3 year olds are ;-)
See you around, "O" family!
