So this was a fun craaazy day! Sam and I decided to really test ourselves as superwomen on this day. She had mom duties she didn't want to interrupt of kids swimming lessons, an appointment, a birthday party for 6 adorable little girls, and a get together later that night. No problem to wiggle in a couple of photo shoots into her day, right?? Haha! We pulled it off, getting a glamour shoot, a family shoot, and a little mini shoot for her daughter in, not to mention that we also did mini photo shoots and video for the birthday party. And the sad fact that one of her daughters Grace, also got sick, which was super sad because she missed a good portion of the fun at the birthday and you can imagine how she felt about posing for family pictures, poor thing! Normally I strongly suggest using this shoot as a time to slow down, pamper yourself, and get in touch with your beautiful feminine side with a low key evening out with your sweetheart, but I'm pretty dang proud that we juggled it all and got such beautiful photos of Sam and her kids to give her husband on Father's Day just a week later. And isn't that just so typical of a mom and wife, trying to fit it all in and totally knocking it all off her list?! I love that she reported back how choked up he got when he saw the photos (well, yes, I can see that....he has a beautiful family and obviously knows how blessed he is!). He is an extremely talented photographer, so that means even more to me. Big thank you to Charity Fales, Hair and Makeup Artist. First time working with her and didn't she do a great job?! And if you're curious about the party, (or ever in the need for a carefree pampering princess party for the mini you in your life), check out the video of Parlez Vous Parties that made her daughter's birthday party so carefree that she was able to accomplish so many other things that day.
