I got out of my car at Hidden Valley Lake and looked around at the location I've shot at before. I wasn't nervous. If you've ever seen the Conleys, you know why. They are super cute and photogenic. I've known them for years, so I'm already really comfortable around them. Plus, spending an afternoon with little Sully is enough to make anyone happy.
Quickly, I scanned for the best light for the session, and the Conleys pulled up. Although he was a tad upset at first, little Sully ran right over to a stump and sat for his pictures. I didn't even have to direct him! I knew the session was going to go well.
To say this session was a success would be an understatement, but working with this gorgeous family definitely doesn't make my job hard.
When we arrived at the lake, Sully warned me to watch out for bears... and if I saw one to shout, "HEY YOU, BEAR!"
When, I told Chris and Martha that I got Sully playing with a rock in the background of their couples portrait, Chris replied,
'That describes family to a T."
