“Have you ever heard of Jose Villa” asked Cyndi. In that moment, it felt like fireworks went off. “Absolutely” I responded, adding “Do you know Jonathan Can…” Cyndi jumped in with “Jonathan Canlas…I love him!” In that moment, I knew we were going to have an amazing family lifestyle portrait session. When your clients know and respect those that influence your work, it’s just going to be a good day. We spent the rest of the evening walking around Cleveland shooting photos and talking shop.
Equally amazing is Cyndi’s family – Lee, Jordan, and Natalie. The two girls are brilliant beyond their years and truly hysterical! They threw themselves into the event and had a great day. As we were wrapping up the session, Jordan asked “So, I’ll see you next year?” A little perplexed, I responded “Sure, what for?” Jordan jumped in with “Senior portraits, silly!” I just melted and have been in a good mood ever since. What an amazing vote of confidence in my work.
So here are just a few of my favorites, and I certainly hope you enjoy. Judging by Cyndi’s early reaction, I think the Dillard’s will just love their new portraits.
Working with the Dillard’s was such fun that I have decided more family lifestyle portrait sessions need to be in my future. Weddings are great, but I certainly love doing both. Thankfully, I have another family session coming up in August. Check back soon to see more.
