This past fall, I convinced my husband to go to NYC in the middle of the week to have family portrait taken by Jessica Claire, a talented wedding and portrait photography from California. I’ve admired her work for many years, but wasn’t going to travel to the other side of the country for photos with her. But when she announced she was going to be in NYC for the day, I just had to do it. Going through this, I must admit was stressful. I totally feel for the families I photograph now. Trying to select clothes and find the perfect outfits is NOT easy! And then there is the whole being in front of the camera. There is a definite reason I prefer being the one BEHIND the camera. Even though I spent way too much time shopping and stressing, I’m very glad to have these portraits.
