Oh how I just adore the family I’m blogging about today. You may recognize Mama as fellow Beaumont photographer Simone Trahan of Simone Trahan Photography. I’m lucky enough to say this is my second time photographing the Trahan family! I truly can’t believe how much the children have grown and changed since I first met them.
Remember these guys?
Look how little those kids are! Wait until you see how they’ve grown!
We’ve been planning this session for months! Between two photographer schedules, plus schedules for our kids, our families, and our lives were just nuts! So we planned this out literally over the course of several months, and once we decided on a date, both of us were dead set on keeping it! Simone had seen photos I’ve done in my field and was in love with the wash of sunshine when the light hits it in the afternoon. The day of the session arrived and everything was beautiful! I was actually sending Simone a text to come 30 minutes later because it was still so bright out when I heard the first rumble of thunder. No lie, within MINUTES the wind had kicked up and it was pouring down rain. I was devastated, and I knew that Simone would be too, since she had spent all day preparing. The rain wasn’t heavy for very long, and although it was still sprinkling, I told them to come on. I was determined to get at least a few pictures, even if we had to try again another day! Luckily, the deluge never picked up heavy again, and although we all had an eye on some pretty impressive lightning all around us, I am SO in love with these images!
Simone didn’t end up getting the bright sunshiney photos she was dreaming of. I wish I could control Mother Nature! That being said, I kind of love the moody sky in these.
Okay, enough text. Check out the amazing Trahan family!
Mom is the self-professed Selfie Queen, so she requested these of her and the kids. How cute are they?!
