Cam & Al'Drena Miller
Al'Drena originally approached via Facebook
I had advertised on a post on Facebook that I was looking for couple to add to my portfolio. I'd had plenty of solo test shoots so this was a way to network and get a little bit out of my element.
We had to reschedule our family photography session a couple of times
The first session, I believe, was rescheduled because Cam was sick? I can't exactly remember why. Then the next time it was suppose to rain. Regardless we found the perfect date that would work. We met in the parking lot at Lake Crab Tree park around 7pm.
Couple Session or Family Session?
At first Al'drena and I had discussed whether we wanted to do an exclusively couple session or a family session. Her parents live little farther away and couldn't find a babysitter so she asked me if she could bring her daughter and son. OF COURSE! The more the merrier! I explained to her that I didn't extensive experience with families but I'd definitely give it a shot if there was time at the end of the session.
First; capturing the emotion between lovers
There is this gorgeous vine covered archway at Lake Crabtree Park and after walking past a few times in the past, I knew I had to take the opportunity to grab a shot.
Finishing up the couple session
We walked over to the field and grabbed a few more pictures of the wedded couple and then we gave the children permission to run wild!
Candid shots are the best shots
I don't know what I was expecting but I captured some of my most favorite images of children in their natural state of play. So many cute memories of Cam chasing his son (who was determined to escape) and Al'Drena walking side by side with her daughter.
