Little Georgia and her gorgeous parents joined us at the pumpkin patch for the second year in a row for a fun session, and for me it couldn’t have come at a better time. We shot at the same location with an even tinier Georgia, one year ago. I pulled some pics from their first session, so we can all ooh and aah at how she’s grown. :)
I won’t get too sappy here, but this family means the world to me. Georgia’s mommy, Cristina, is one of the most beautiful people (inside and out) I know. She’s been the best friend I could ask for, when we lived ten minutes from each other, and still now that we live almost two hours apart. Whether we’re satisfying our taco cravings or the ever-present sweet tooth, there is always meaningful (or when we need it, silly meaningless) conversation and always, always tons of laughter. And this visit brought me back down to earth in the world of our photography business.
These folks are real…whether doubled over in laughter (Cristina & her hubby John), or making us double over with laughter as they “argue” with each other, we’re snapping like crazy and capturing who they really are. In the world of photography, it’s easy to get caught up in comparing yourself to others’ work and how they do things. I’m so secretly competitive, and equally secretly sensitive, when it comes to our work. But, if I so much as think about worrying about our style and talents, one session with the Adkersons brings me back down to earth and shuts me up. There’s no posing, no worrying about suggesting locations (even when we’re knocking on a random classic car collector’s door whose doorbell has been taped over to try and get permission to shoot there…and not get shot in the process), no doing things that really aren’t Jordan And Mindy style. We’re here to follow you around, and capture who you really are. It’s what we do, and we do it well. Thanks for reminding us, Georgia and fam. We love you. :)
Enough rambling, now check out little miss Georgia, won’t you? A bit of “now and then” can be found below…
Georgia, while her mommy was singing The Wheels on the Bus. This is what the mommies on the bus say (ssh ssh ssssssh).
Pure Georgia, 100% cute!
We lucked out with an overcast day last year at the pumpkin patch, but this year we had full sun, lots of warmth, and not a cloud in the sky. We’re loving the outcome for both situations. :)
Georgia, flying high!
As Cristina says, “farmer’s daughter”
She was fascinated by these flowers, and kept “petting” them. :)
What little one wouldn’t want to climb up here? :)
Sunny pumpkins everywhere!
A few shots by a pretty weeping willow.
Presenting….GEORGIA!! Peekaboo, we see you. :)
Leading the way on a little walk…mommy and daddy aren’t fast enough, apparently. :)
This is just beautiful!
A few from last year, including some corn maze shots. This year the corn was extremely low and dried out, so no corn maze this go-around.
Look how tiny she was!!
One of my favorite shots of Cristina ever!
She was so fascinated by the pumpkins last year.
Right before a tiny topple-over in the dirt. :)
Thank you guys for roaming with us. We love you so very much, and will see you again soon. Anyone up for tacos in Wilmington? :)
