Suzanne, Chad, and Viv’s Summer Family Session by Seattle Wedding Photographer Brandi Potter
Suzanne and Chad are really special to me. I met Suzanne through my now roommate Ami, and they were actually my first destination wedding. I’ve loved being able to watch their little family grow, and I was so sad when I moved to Louisville that they were just moving to Mississippi and we didn’t get to spend any time together. Back in August I finally had a weekend free and loaded up my pups and drove down to hang out with them the whole weekend. I LOVED getting to interact with Viv and see how smart and wild she is, and listening to her baby gibberish made me so happy.
I think this session is the reason I want to open up my business to shooting more families. I’ve always seen the importance in having family photos done, but never really knew how my style of shooting would be able to capture a real connection with children. I think after interacting with these three and spending a whole weekend with them, it really helped me see that it’s all basically the same thing. I go into all of my sessions and weddings wanting to capture emotion, and this was no different. It may be slightly happier faces and less drama but I love that I’m now comfortable growing with my clients as they grow their little families. I really can’t wait to see where this section of my business leads.
