So way back when I was a newbie to the Buffalo Wedding Photographer world, Sandra was one of my most loyal clients. We did so many portrait sessions together, and I got to know her daughter from before birth to being an adorable little girl. Then Sandra got busy. Super busy. Like, wonder-woman, mom and nursing school type of busy (for those of you who know someone who has been through nursing school, you know this means they have no time for anything). So I was beyond thrilled when Sandra contacted me to do some graduation and family portraits for her! She has worked harder than almost anyone I know to get where she is today, and I know I'm not speaking for just myself when I say I couldn't be more proud of her!
And how cool is it to have mom graduate from college the same year that her daughter graduates from kindergarten?!?
Buffalo in the spring is a questionable thing for family portraits. Weather is either beautiful, or rain, or sleet, and you never know what it's going to be until that day. I've rescheduled so many family photography portraits in the last couple months because of the unending rain, that I felt apprehensively excited for the day we did this families pictures. I held a "share and win" contest on facebook in April, and Rebecca, who says she never wins anything, was the lucky winner. I was thrilled, because once I heard a bit about her family, I couldn't imagine a family that deserved to win a photography portrait session more than they do!
