Photographing the Mitchell family was such an honor.
There is always an ease to my job when I know someone before a shoot. Years ago Mom "Sherod" and I worked together at Silver City Brewery. Sherod was always one of my favorite people to work with. She is funny, positive and kind. I must say years ago she won herself a very special spot in my little ole heart.
So you could understand how flattered and excited I was when she contacted me to photograph her sweet little family.
They were a pleasure to work with, and I adored the open and fun relationship that they share.
The shoot ended near the water and by this time all family member were doing all they could to hold it together. Thankfully they were able to take a quiet moment on the waters edge. It's those little moments where they let their guard down and let the real magic happen. This one tender moment between Dad and daughter just melts my heart.
To me the shoot was a success. I smiled all the way through the shoot ... making it a very good day for me. We had some laughs, we took some pictures, and we captured those fleeting moments in our children's lives that pass in a blink of an eye.
Thank you Sherod and Randy for allowing me to capture this time in your life!! Please click here to see the rest of the images from your shoot!!
