It’s been a while since we’ve had a family session here on the blog! And what a great way to break into March (even though we got about 3 inches of snow this morning)!
Say “hello” to the Hakes’ family of seven! When Faith (the Mom) emailed me about scheduling a shoot, I knew right away we would get along. Her phrasing went something like, “I’d like to a book a family sitting… I mean, I don’t plan on you sitting on my family, but maybe taking some photos of me sitting on them?… Are you interested?”
And I’m like, “HECK YES!”
We met up in Chattanooga, ran around a park, and eventually found a small field where I tortured the kids and arranged them until they were a grassy mess. It was great!
So let’s get to know Faith, her husband Gary, and their kids Taylor, Tori, Big L, Little L, and Girly L. 🙂
Huge THANK YOU to Cyndi of Cyndi T. Photography (who you recently got to know here) for coming out to help and bringing along her brand new Canon 50D! It was a pure joy to photograph the Hakes family. These kids were just so happy and care-free, I couldn’t help being a bit envious for childhood again! And kudos to superhero mom, Faith! Not only is she mother to five kids but she’s also their teacher too! I honestly don’t think I could do it… Seriously blown away.
I’ve decided to open the books up a little more for any last-minute photoshoots only because George and I are really feeling the moving-across-the-country pressure and would like to create as much buffer room as possible before our big adventure. So if you’re still looking for some carlybish action before we leave, feel free to send in your inquiries. There’s still time to book a shoot!
Okay, and one last thing! This family just puts me in a good mood and I feel like spreading the love! So share some love to the Hakes family, pick your favorite photo or just say something nice in the comments and you’ll be entered for a chance to win an iTunes gift card! So feed the comment-monster and get some monster-lovin’ back! (Only comments received now through 12:00am EST today, 3/2/2010, will be eligible.)
