April 27, 2011 - Engagements
jenn + nick + finn
We first met Jenn + Nick a few years back at a wedding Jenn was a bridesmaid in. And last year when they welcomed their adorable son, Finn, into the family, we had the honor of shooting their new family (which was the greatest thing ever, because, really, Finn is heart-meltingly cute!). So, when Jenn contacted us about shooting their wedding this year, I believe there was some jumping and clapping on my end. I couldn't wait to shoot them again! After the longest ever winter of waiting, we got together Saturday to shoot their engagement photos!
It's been a pretty awesome week to start off our busy season. Despite all the nasty weather and rain, we managed to only have to cancel one shoot this week, which is a minor miracle this time of year. I'm actually a little overwhelmed that Spring seems to actually be here now and we're getting right back in it (other than that whole extra baby thing, which is still making life pretty interesting).
And seeing Finn walking around and being about as cute as it's legally allowed to be is already getting me excited for Dexter to get to that stage.
Gah! Are you kidding me?! I'm not rushing this one. In fact, when he starts trying to stand, I'm going to kick his feet out from under him! It went way too fast with Murphy - I'm rushing nothing! Finn = one heck of a good looking kid, who also just happens to be a bad-ass with his rockin faux-hawk. I desperately wanted Murphy to get one, but he's a big ol' hippie and refuses to cut his.
Also this next shot of yours = win! It's funny, we were driving to the shoot, and it was overcast and threatening rain. Then, we drove through this crazy, crazy fog, then the shoot started and the sun came out and by the time it was over it was back to overcast. It's maddening that we never know if a shoot is going to get rained out, but as a photographer, I love that this town's ridiculous weather allows us to get such different looks in a one and a half hour period. :)
Jenn - you seriously killed these shots!
It's hard not to see yourself in your clients' families if you have kids. I've been hit in the eye by __(insert inanimate object used as a weapon here)__ about 435 thousand times since becoming a dad. These top two photos may be my unintentionally hilarious favorite shots from a family shoot ever.
And shortly after you took those, Finn came looking for me with his branch of justice.
Yeah, I think it took him about .15 seconds after you handed him that before it turned into a weapon. Boys are funny - I look at nature and see beauty; they look at nature and see weapons. I swear, Murphy found a stick at Knox Farm last spring that was an L shaped stick, and it was immediately a gun. And, I might add, his favorite gun toy for the rest of the year. He still has it. :)
Guys, you have the sweetest kid ever - thanks so much for hanging out with us and letting us shoot your adorable family. We seriously cannot wait for the wedding!!
