Last weekend I did my first Mini Sessions at Yoga for the Peaceful as a benefit. (50% of all proceeds will go to them.) With the nasty weather, I was so glad that we did it inside. The lighting there is just heavenly and I am so thrilled with how the photos turned out.
Here are just a few of the images that popped out at me while skimming through them this week.
First up was the Hegeman family. Sammie, my daughter, goes to school with Zoë, their daughter, and they adore each other! This family was so much fun to photograph – they are so laid back, funny and just all around wonderful people.
Next up was Shelley and her kids Avery and Owen. Unfortunately, her husband, Eric, ended up busy and was unable to join them for the shoot. But we had a great time anyway! Shelley is a delightful, caring person who has done immense amounts for Yoga for the Peaceful. My daughters adore Avery and Owen is a complete crack-up! Shelley’s kids are truly wonderful.
In the afternoon, I got to photograph Maeve again. Shockingly, I didn’t blog about my first time meeting her for Christmas photos with her little brother Hayden. I couldn’t believe how much she’d grown up since I’d last seen her! She was just a few weeks old for her first photoshoot. Hayden has also grown immensely, as well! These two are just the spitting images of each other at the same age – and both are just precious! I forget just how much I love shooting babies until I do a baby session!
Martha wanted a different kind of shoot, something I’d never done before – images for brochures she would be making for her personal training company in Boulder. I was a little worried about it at first, but Martha was wonderful to work with! We’d only talked a few times, but I had a delightful time shooting her and working with her. And it’s something I’d love to do again!
Thank you, all, for helping support Yoga for the Peaceful and for making this shoot so successful. Each of you were fantastic to shoot – I had fun at each one.
I am also hoping to do another “Mini Session” outside this summer and would love to know if you’re interested! You can either post here or head over to my brand new TippiePics Facebook page and I’ll be happy to contact you when I’ve got a date set!
On a side note, for those of you still waiting for the last installment of the inauguration photos, I hope to have those done soon. My daughter, Ellie, broke her femur right as I was finishing them up and I haven’t gotten back to them. Thanks for your patience!
