One thing that I especially love about this family is that everyone calls me by my full name– Becca Bond. “Hey Becca Bond, look at this!” I secretly kind of love my name, and I think it sounds pretty fancy when I’m called by my full name. It also makes me laugh.
Another reason I’ve kind of fallen for this family is that they have a style that cannot be replicated. I’m pretty sure that Mom J was a stylist in her past life and pulls together outfits and concept for our photo shoots using vintage finds, colorful children’s clothes, and tons of props. When I meet a client and the back of their suv is burgeoning with a chandelier, a vintage pram, and a creepy baby doll, my heart does a little flip. It becomes almost a creative collaboration– which I *LOVE*.
This is the second year that I have had the honor of photographing this wonderfully colorful family. I have been promised that i am their photographer for life and that I will be shooting their children’s weddings some day 🙂
BTW how amazing is this dress? The story is her mom bought it for her before she was even born. I have some of those for my own little girl and it’s always such a thrill when they grow into it. A thrill, but sad too!
