This was the ultimate Christmas miracle for me. From shoot on Tuesday, editing through the night, client proof Wednesday morning, overnight prints from Minnesota in December to Raleigh arriving on Friday night and framed and wrapped by the photographer in time to be under the tree Saturday night for Christmas eve; that was the ultimate miracle and even more miraculous is what a doll I had to photograph. I think I must still be recovering from shock of it all and also making sure all the intended gift recipients have opened their gifts. I have known this little ones dad for years and it made it even more exciting for me to receive the best e-mail after it all was over with :”you are now our families photographer of choice!”
That makes my job oh so worth it and also working with adorable kids like this little one. We did have to use some bribery, about a million pine cones thrown into the pond at Duke gardens and oh yeah, it features THE red bridge! Enjoy!
