Every year I drive out to the Schaap families house near their dairy and shoot a family session. Every year I am blessed by their generosity, kindness and sincere friendship. One of the coolest parts of my job is watching families grow up. Watching their kids go from a little six month old baby to a nine year old. My job as a portrait photographer is to document these growing families and then give them a product to help store these memories. One of those products is a lookbook. It is a hand-crafted 8.5x11 coffee table book with 30 pages and various linen cover color options. I design each lookbook to fit each session. I photograph these family sessions in various angles and groupings with the idea that a lookbook would be a final product. My most favorite pose are close-up connections bewtween the family. For example, mom hugging on her daughter while walking down the dairy road, or big brother putting his arm around his little sister. Sweet moments.Here is a peek into the Schaap families lookbook.
This bridal shoot was special. It was special, because I knew Anjelica when she was in high school, which has been like five years ago or so. She is now a college graduate and just got married last weekend. She makes one gorgeous bride thats for sure!!We did her shoot at Overton Hotel for the first half and then moved on to the Garden and Arts Center in Lubbock. She was absolutely stunning.
Just look at her!
