Three years ago when I met this family for the first time,
I had no idea I would become part of their summer tradition.
Every summer, this family spends a week (or more) in Carolina Beach,
and for the last 3 years, I feel like I have watched Megan grow up behind my lens.
And I feel like I’m the fortunate one to have the experience.
Having family portraits done are no small feat.
There’s the scheduling, the wardrobe coordinating, the location selection, and the investment.
Megan’s mom said it best in a recent note to me:
” I have to save ALL year long for this investment in our memories! Some people think I am crazy for the amount of money I spend on pictures…. and maybe I am crazy… but, I LOVE LOVE LOVE having our pictures done by you. So, I sacrifice other things so that I can ‘afford’ this. ”
This is why I do what I do. This is why I love what I do.
