When Carla and her family came in for their consultation we went over a lot of details and made some incredible plans for their portrait session- but it was the day of the photoshoot itself that took all of us by surprise!
It started out with Natalie and Carla together getting their professional hair and makeup done by our wonderful makeup artist Meliha (check out her work). Natalie finished her professional makeover and we were able to capture some beautiful images while Carla was in hair and makeup. They loved getting some Mother and Daughter time, laughing and talking, and giggling in the mirror!
After snapping some beautiful glamour portraits for both of them the rest of the gang arrived- and I mean the whole family! Carla had asked if it would be okay, or not, if their little terriers could join in the photoshoot with them. I pondered for a moment, it had been a while since I photographed pets, but I had to seize the opportunity to make sure all of the family was together and I'm so glad we did.
The laughs, puppy kisses, and breathtaking photographs were the best surprise of the day (other than getting to hold and pet these sweet puppies!). Their portraits look like they were shot for a magazine spread and I just can't get over how incredible their family dynamic was.
