|| Memory Lane ||
Working as a professional photographer became a dream of mine a few years ago. I knew I would eventually turn it into a small business, but using it to capture lifetime memories with childhood friends and their children, brings more meaning to this career that I'd imagine!
Danielle and I have known each other since we were 8 years old while playing softball together up until our senior year of high school. We can walk down memory lane for days and the conversation will never fade. My softball girls have always been such a strong part of my foundation during my childhood growing up, and I wouldn't have wanted it any other way. Now, today, I still get to play on their team, as a photographer, capturing their moments together with their angels who call them "mommy."
|| The Photo Shoot ||
I've never met Reagan until this shoot, and my goodness! She was completely in her comfort zone! I truly believe I was capturing the next top model! I mean, look at her natural poses! She's not even 4 years old yet and she was driving this photo shoot with little direction from me, who had to actually take professional posing courses to learn for myself and my clients! Her smile lit up these moments! This is her spotlight!
During this photo shoot, it was obvious that Danielle is the best mom role model for how to raise a child! She was so gracious towards Reagan during this shoot, and Reagan displayed the same behavior in return. Although I am not yet a mother, I do believe how we choose to behave as adults, our children will adopt the same characteristics. Danielle is the mother you see in magazines getting her toes done with her daughter, while truly demonstrating the meaning of unconditional love! They are each others rock! They are a gift to each other from God.
THIS is the type of mother I dream to be! A role model, a friend, but most importantly, one of the strongest foundation a child could ever dream of. Because of this, Reagan will always be in the right direction God has paved for her. And when she gets the choice to sit it out or dance, Danielle will always be there to guide her twirl.
Danielle, if you haven't been told this yet today, you're doing a great job! Read that again.
Thank you so much for sharing your time with me during this photo shoot. It was SUCH a perfect day to meet your pride and joy!
