It can be funny the connections that are made through chance meetings, but there is also something to be said for the connections we make when given the opportunity day in and day out. And this would be one of those stories.
Many of you may know that I work part-time at a local coffee establishment that provides full medical benefits for only working 20 hours a week: a huge benefit for myself and my family. However, one of the other benefits from that scant 20 hours a week is the ability to meet and connect with some truly wonderful people (and sometimes bombard them with business cards extolling the virtues of what Rachel and I truly love to do). We won't go into detail about Jamie's daily addiction, but suffice it to say I see her and her wonderful children on their way to school at least 4 times a week. She and her children every morning are some of the nicest people I come across, so it was an easy conversation to start about photography. As fate would have it, she was looking for a photographer for this year's family photos. I still feel so truly blessed to have had this opportunity to work with such a beautiful family, and I can't wait to work with them for years to come.
In Part I of our little family photographic journey you will see the family in many of the group shot's from our 2 hours together. Later on in Part II we will show off the individual photos captured during the session: the parts that really exhibit everyone's truly unique and wonderful personalities. Enjoy!!
