As a mom of a 2, 3, and 4-year old boy myself, this family was speaking my language. I also couldn’t have asked for a more perfect morning. We started our shoot just as the fog (and smoke because it’s 2020 and of course there’s smoke) cleared and the sun broke through. Even having a sunny day line up with your shoot this late in the year in rainforest territory is magical!
The only thing that went wrong is I stopped to play with the oldest boy for a bit while dad ran home for an outfit as we were all early to the shoot anyway, and while I did, I carefully locked my gear in the car and covered it up with a blanket just like any responsible photographer would. However, I made a deal with myself a while back after too many shoots dumping out my pockets and bags trying to remember where I tucked my keys away. I made a deal that I would always put my keys in the same place every time – the same place in my camera bag. Well, let’s just say I’ll never make that mistake again and I’ve been panicking and checking my pockets before I lock the car all week since! Thankfully hubby was home with my spare keys so he ran them over and saved us all!
