No worries05.25.16

He was worried he would not be able to pull it off, he was worried that she would not be happy that they were not dressed up, he was worried about the weather (maybe that was just me…the forecast was snow:)…it all did not matter (which was what I told him). I knew she would not care about any of it when she knew what he had done. For 8 months he had been planning this surprise of having me join them at the place where they return every year to celebrate where they got married 10 years ago. This will go down as one of my favourite sessions of all time…not fancy, but so special and so much love. They have been together for 26 years and are still one of the most loving families that I get to work with. It is my pleasure to be able to continually capture their story:).

A decade!03.04.16

So when this mom told me I had been photographing them for 10 years, I had to go back and find a picture. Crazy! It should not shock me how fast time flies as I document this all the time (and see it in my own children) but it still does. I have totally enjoyed doing these portrait sessions…I will be opening up another set of times in April…there will be more about that soon.

I asked if I could share this mom’s words that she had sent me after sending out her gallery because she describes exactly what I am going for with these:). “Oh, Jody…you have done it again! You continue to amaze me with how you capture my children. I don’t even know how to explain it. How you are able to see them in your lens as I see them. Thank you for helping me preserve this moment in time. I am so thankful that I have these moments, from toddler until now. It is incredible, the change that you have captured for me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!!“. Here are a few of the images of these two:). Oh and the blurry picture was a misfire of the break dancing but I loved it. Can totally see it as an abstract piece of art:).

Video and “perfection”02.17.16

 

So as I mentioned in an earlier post, I took a video class in October. Mostly this was for my own family but then realized how much I actually enjoyed the class so thought I would try it out in a “client” setting. I put the video together for the client and then I got scared to share it. I am new at this skill so could easily go back and critique my skills…in a number of areas…but it is tough to improve without practice:). Thought I would finally be brave and share it as I would like to do this more and think it is an amazing keepsake for families. Would love to know if there is any interest in working with me this year on this project…I have not worked out all of the details but do know that there will be introductory prices. Send me a note if you are interested.

Birthday session12.29.15

I have been so terrible at blogging this year but I had to go back and share this session from early November. I traveled to AZ to take underwater images of this swimmer as a birthday gift from her parents. I could not be more excited about this session as it is the daughter of a good friend (and my daughter and I got to enjoy a fantastic visit with them for a few days) but also capturing someone with the same childhood sport that I had, was super fun!:). I was on the swim team as a child so love that we could get some cool images for her…apparently there are not a lot of “swim photographers” out there:). I am super excited about the art piece that is going along with this session and will share when it is complete:).
