So many people don’t realize that I offer gift cards; because of military life, I only guarantee them for a year…while I hope and pray we are not leaving DC, any time soon, who knows. So, Adriane bought her boyfriend a gift card last year so he could get photos with his kids; they never used it, it was expiring, a family session was planned, but he and his kids couldn’t attend, so it became a mommy and me session at Terrapin Park instead.
I have been wanting to do a session at Terrapin Park for a while. I explored it this past spring my with kids and in-laws, and I loved it because it had one of the main things I look for in my locations: variety. It has trails, it has fields, and and it has beach. And with the exception of the toll for the Bay Bridge, it honestly is the same distance as driving into DC some days.
It was her son’s Liam’s 10th birthday, and it was so nice to be able to commemorate that with some moments with his mom. We always think of doing mommy and me sessions like this with our little kids, but sometimes it’s nice to get in the frame and capture it with those bigger kids, too. Editing this made me think about doing a session like this with my daughter when she turns 10 in October and continuing it with each boy; I’m not in the frame as much as I’d like to be, and I don’t want them to look back and wonder why. I want them to see me loving them at all the ages!
I have just a few openings left for 2021, and it’s not too early to book for 2022! I know that sounds crazy to say, but it’s true! The great thing about a session at Terrapin Park is that it gets great sunsets and I know this would be a great fall/winter location, too! It gives timeless photos.
