After the COVID-19 pandemic caused reschedule after reschedule, I finally was able to photograph Jamie & Abe’s beautiful family at Shell Ridge in Walnut Creek. And boy, was it worth the wait! We had perfect weather, killer light, and such a fun session. It truly was a dream and I’m obsessed with the photos we captured.
The past few weeks have been quite a rollercoaster of a ride for this sweet family. Jamie, a teacher, has had to try to balance raising her two young boys while also educating her students from home. An accomplishment I know I would most certainly fail at juggling! And Abe, a police officer, is doing his best to keep our community safe while battling the current no-bail rules that is allowing criminals back onto the streets immediately after committing a crime.
This hectic life is only further topped by trying to plan their Fall wedding during this pandemic. I pray our sweet session was able to take their mind of the struggles for a little while, and focus on their beautiful love for one another! I am so impressed that Jamie and Abe arrived with the most big and beautiful smiles despite all the challenges they are facing. You would never know!
Jamie and Abe- thank you so much for trusting me to capture this sweet time in your young family’s life! It was such a joy to meet your sweet and handsome boys. Between the “airplanes” and the tickle fights, I had so many favorite moments from your Shell Ridge, Walnut Creek family session! I hope you love these shots as much as I do! I can’t wait to photograph you guys again at your wedding this Fall.
