Sometimes my intuition and creative energy work overtime. I didn't know that it was THIS family, but I actually had a dream about the session before they ever contacted me. I saw the purples, the creamy light, and vivid colors. At the time, I didn't have anything in my prop stash that resembled these fabrics. I started gathering items for the session over several weeks. Some for other sessions entirely. It wasn't until the family arrived in the studio that it all came together. They brought with them a large plastic tote full of heirloom blankets and quilts. I tell my clients all the time to feel free to bring special items with them to their session. I've never had anyone bring a WHOLE tote! I cracked open the top and I saw the missing items from my dream immediately! Then I realized that my dream was about THIS family! They had brought two patchwork quilts with them that completed my vision. The purple patchwork and the patchwork flowered quilts pictured here are both family heirlooms and so fantastic for this session! Pieces so personal and nothing I could ever have ever found on my own.
A lot of people ask how I market myself and how I find clients. Honestly...when things like this happen, it's clear to me that sometimes I just have to wait until they find me. I have faith that everything is meant to be! Congratulations to this family and welcome to the world baby girl!
