I used to work with Rebecca when I was still in college. When we went on interviews together, we used to joke and tell the subjects that you had to have the name Rebecca to work at The Daily Record. (Or, we went by R-squared.)
We had some good times, and I found her to be a solid mentor. To this day, I miss leaning in her office touting, “Merlin’s Pants!” Thankfully friendships don’t have to end, even if offices change.
So when Rebecca mentioned that she might want to get some family portraits taken I was beyond giddy. I had yet to met her lovely husband and I had briefly been introduced to her new tiny human, the lovely Genesis. Come to think of it, I can’t believe Genesis is growing so fast, as I remember attending her baby shower.
The day of the shoot was both wonderful and hectic. We had chosen the covered bridge in North Little Rock’s Burns Park as our second shooting location, starting out in the lovely home that the Brockman’s have recently purchased and made their own.
It turns out we weren’t the only ones trying to shoot at the bridge that day. I’ve never seen so many photographers in one place – but we made it work.
Although tensions might have been high for a second, the shoot was one of the most enjoyable I’ve done to date. Getting Miss G to smile became my ultimate goal, and I think even Parish had fun. (I’ll ask him, soon.)
Here’s some of my favorites from the day. One day, I hope to have a family as sweet as this. ❤
