The Blades family was one of my very first clients back when I was a photographer in Florida. That was almost ten years ago! When I first photographed their family they only had one child and he was a toddler. It was so great to see them again and see that they added a daughter to the mix too! They are such a gorgeous, photogenic family. They sure make my job easy.
I started my photography business back in 2009 in Gainesville, Florida. In the few years that I was there I grew quite the loyal client base. In 2012 my family moved back to my home state of Minnesota, it was so hard to leave behind all those families. Over the years I had made connections and friendships with these families. I knew someday that I would return to Florida to photograph my clients again. Last spring I threw the idea out there and the response was overwhelming. I couldn’t believe how many people wanted me to be their family photographer again! So a trip was planned, and many sessions were booked.
I knew I wanted to time my trip with wildflower season, and the I couldn’t have timed it better. The wildflower field is one of my favorite places I have ever been. It truly is a magical site, it is a photographer’s dream come true. The flowers were right at peak when I was there and I had perfect weather to boot! I look forward to doing this again sometime in the future.
