eah, I know what you're thinking....what a weird blog post title! I'll explain here in a bit. But first...
I think one of the best parts about hiring a custom portrait artist to photograph your children is getting to see your children through someone else's eyes. It is fun and enlightening and interesting to see what kinds of expressions the photographer can get from them, perhaps even ones that you, as their parent, cannot get. I even think that holds true even if you are a photographer yourself. I know it is for me!
So, over the weekend, I had the pleasure of photographing a photographer's family. It was the talented Andrea Burns of Andrea Burns Photography
, her husband and her three beautiful children. (those of you who shop the Pottery Barn Kids
catalog may recognize little Audrey...she was PBK's baby of the month a few months ago!!!)
We had a beautiful evening for our session now that the hot humid weather seems to be gone. The sky was a crispy blue with just the right amount of clouds. I felt like I got to know them a bit too as we sat and ate our hamburgers together under the shade of a big tree and it was there that I learned that they are just as beautiful on the inside as they are on the outside. I also learned that Andrea has a very high pain tolerance (toenail!) and that they have an awesome sense of humor. They joked that they had talked about naming their kids "rug", "sun" and "wind"...since their last name is Burns. Ha!
Anyhow, it was a pleasure to meet all of you.
Andrea, here is your family...though my eyes:)
Did I mention it was windy? Wind definitely makes for messy wind blown hair...but also for happy natural smile:)
