I love doing family portraits during the Holidays.
Everyone is happy with family members gathered together.
High school seniors I did 10-20-30 years ago return with their new brood.
Proud parents adore their military outfitted children showing off the uniforms and many decorations.
Stories are told and memories are rehashed.
It was a first for me with over 40 years of photographing families.
During the session… right in the middle of the photoshoot I was handed a note.
I,ME the photographer, was to announce that Jessica was pregnant… and then capture the resulting reactions of the family.
It was great…. took a little while to sink in but tears and hugs followed for a truly special session.
Congratulations to the couple and the extended family.
One I will never forget and one that will be remembered with a portrait from TA Schmidt Photography!
