I am sure it is the same in any profession, being asked to photograph a colleagues family is one of the highest kind of compliment. I have captured other photographers families quite a few times. It is always fun yet nerve wracking. This shoot was originally planned as a maternity session. The sweet & talented Kelly of June Lion was due in the spring with her first baby. I had big plans for her belly. As you know I am partial to capturing beautiful mamas, and redheads, so the combo had my brain spinning.
Then plans changed, in a drastic way. Baby girl decided to come early, very early. It got scary there for a bit, but Miss Neko is a fighter. Quite a mighty little thing. After a few months in the NICU and lots of love & prayers by many, many of us who know this family she came home. It was my pleasure to see this sweet family complete, at home, and loving every second of it.
Here are a few images from our little session at home…
Kelly thanks again for having me into your home to capture your family. Neko is an absolute doll. I hope you like the sneak peek. I will have the whole set done very soon.
