I get nervous before every shoot.
We all do.
It’s a great thing-it keeps us on our toes. Packing lists to triple-check, meeting someone new, and the generalized anxiety of our responsibility to you and your family. It’s never something we take lightly, going into it.
Yet when I return from a wedding or family session, my husband will joke,
“Let me guess. They were the nicest and most interesting group you’ve ever met. They were ‘totally precious and you just adored them all’, right?”
Yep. That’s how it always works.
Your hugs, expressions, inside jokes, even the way you squabble. Each group has a unique fingerprint.
I can’t really explain it, but I think you are ALL the cat’s pajamas.
Some sessions and weddings have been blogged already, and a few weddings are still pending publication elsewhere, but here’s Part One one of a sampling of my 2014 work that I haven’t yet shared:

I met up with the King crew over the holidays so that they could get a Charleston family portrait while everyone was in town.
We’d put a lot of thought into this session. Wardrobe opinions, plans to change to a beach location after we took some photos downtown, etc.
Approximately 11 minutes into our session, the sky opened up. Linda, who’s a television producer and knows about getting things done, said “sometimes you just need to punt.”
We didn’t get the golden beach frolic-y light we originally wanted, but we got to watch model trains go around a mountain. And hey-that’s a win!

Molly’s vision for her family session was to capture them having fun and being themselves. And we did! I love the light, colors, humor and energy here.
