I’ve known Erin for… well most of my life, we grew up at the same church together and I’d been friends with her older siblings for years so it was an honor to get to do Erin’s engagement shoot. We picked a fun location that would sport multiple looks and fit their style in my hometown of New Braunfels. To my surprise the whole family showed up at the shoot! I was a bit nervous not knowing what they all planned on doing while we did photos. Having a ton of people linger in the background while I try to connect with my clients through the lens and get them to smile, laugh, and be natural is not easy. Thankfully the family understood that and did their own thing. Later they all went to eat at a favorite restaurant afterwards and we had a lot of laughs during the shoot.
