The Whole “C” Crew

When I say the “whole crew” I mean ALL of them!

It’s not often that I’d have the opportunity to work with this entire family. Some drove from the west coast of Florida and some flew in from Boston.  Regardless of how far it was to travel I am so very happy that I had the opportunity to work with all of them before they all took off on vacation and left me behind in Orlando  (PS i am happy to join you guys on vacay next year…just think of me as the family photographer – haha!)

I’ve known this family for about 13 years (gosh…I can’t believe it’s been that long) but this was the first time working with the full /extended version of the crew.

We had one opportunity and a small window of time – so rain, shine or heat stroke (seriously it was so hot) this session was a go.  I can only hope that I caught some images that each of them can enjoy.

It was so very evident (when I jumped into my “photographer role”) that these “kids” have some great role models!  More than anything, during this session, I enjoyed seeing the love that is shared between Pete and Kelly.

Each time I took an image I was drawn towards their affection for one another and how proud they are of their kids. It was an absolute pleasure and I hope to have the opportunity to work with them again in the future.

Calm My Mind

Thank heavens for other people….
other blogs that captivate me and occupy my mind when it needs to be calm.
I read the below on someone elses blog and wanted to remember it myself
and lets be honest….
I can’t post without an image attached…
this one felt right although its not mine.

The Kama Sutra of Kindness: Position Number 3

It’s easy to love
through a cold spring
when the poles
of the willows
turn green
pollen falls like
a yellow curtain
and the scent of
Paper Whites
clots
the air

but to love for a lifetime
takes talent

you have to mix yourself
with the strange
beauty of someone
else
wake each morning
for 72,000
mornings in
a row so
breathed and
bound and
tangled
that you can hardly
sort out
your arms
and
legs

you have to
find forgiveness
in everything
even ink stains
and broken
cups

you have to be willing to move through
life
together
the way the long
grasses move
in a field
when you careen
blindly toward
the other
side

there’s never going to be anything
straight or predictable
about your path
except the
flattening
and the springing
back

you just go on walking for years
hand in hand
waist deep in the weeds
bent slightly forward
like two question
marks
and all the while it

burns
my dear
it burns beautifully above
you
and goes on
burning
like a relentless
sun

The H Family: 10 of them to be exact!

Like I said in my prior post, I consider this new momma somewhat like family.  She is awesome and I just loved being able to capture this time in her life.  It was an absolute pleasure working with this entire family!

K, I knew you were a great guy, but it was so wonderful meeting the whole crew and I have such an appreciation for how fantastic they all were too!!

Coordinating 10 people seemed like a daunting task in the early stages of my planning but I must admit I am so happy with these images and hope the family enjoys them for years to come.

Lil’ Miss Andi stole the show and towards the end of the session and decided to give me a big ‘ole smile – It couldn’t have ended on a more perfect note!

XO – J

P.S. I promised that April was going to be a busy month around here and I’m so glad to be back up and blogging (its been a long time coming).  I fully look forward to the challenge of delivering great service to each of my clients this month. Keep your eyes peeled for newbies, a few 6 month olds and a special engagement session toward the end of the month.  If you’re on Instagram find me at Jennypeppers21 and on facebook at jennypeppersphotography.

I’d say the ladies are completely out numbered by the guys…but the good news is that there’s room to grow!

I can’t help but post this last one.  I really believe that the love of a grandmother or great grandmother is one of the most capativing loves of all.

Happy Wednesday everyone!!
