Saturday, in the Park

Today was a pretty good day.

I went out and grabbed myself some coffee, drove around a little, got some photography porn magazines and got ready to go have some pictures taken.

My friends Jessie and David of Terwilliger Photo came out to take family portraits for my family. With my cousin in town from Iowa, and her mom in town from Alabama, we figured this would be a perfect opportunity to get a family picture taken. But sticking 12 people in a tiny portrait studio? 3 being kids? Then paying out the ass for one or two poses that we would have probably had to settle on? No fucking thanks.

Instead, we opted for the freedom of choosing a place and time. Having two photographers, one taking the portrait shots and the other candids? Being able to get every single shot taken on my own disc to do with them what I please? Having professional editing done to a large majority at no extra cost? Paying only $50 an hour? Yes, yes, yes, and hell yes.

David and Jessie were so professional. They were patient with the kids, even the very, very uncooperative one (not belonging to me for once! SCORE!) and friendly to everyone. They worked with the horrible lighting of the day and found great angles and places for us to shoot. I was seriously impressed and would not hesitate hiring them again. I highly doubt I will ever go to a studio again.

Did you know its been about 4 years since I have had an actual portrait taken with my son? I’ve been meaning and meaning to go but dealing with the appointment, the cost, all that crap just turned me off. Luckily, I was finally able to get a great shot of us. (And yes, he’s usually that squinty, at least when asked to pose. Dunno why)(But can we just say freakin’ awwwwww? Please?)

Seriously. My baby aint no baby no more.

Oooh they even do sexy shots. Obviously not for the uh family, but for erm, private use? Yea. I’m so highly entertaining the thought. Sure I don’t NEED them, but don’t you think they are good to have? Just in case? I mean, I have the boobs, I may as well use them while they are still high above my knees right? Oh shut up. You know you wanna see them if I do them.



  1. By being the first commenter, does that mean I’m also first in line?

    For serious, y’all were damn cute and awww worthy.

  2. Definitely an “awwwwwwwww” moment — and hard to believe the kids grow up so quickly. And I’m second in line for the other photos… :0)

  6. Cool!!!
    I think the last portraits properly done I had taken with Vic and TB were… about a year ago… and well… I am fussy! hehehe…
    The thing is… I am a photographer, so I kinda have an idea of what I want… and kinda feel like my place is always behind the camera! lol
    but for my surprise, the guy that did our portrait called all the right points! He even made TB smile (he was in one of those days where he didn’t wanna be in front of a camera… even tho at this point he was in front of one everyday… πŸ™‚ )
    Really… it is good for the self-estime etc etc
    I just did the ones of a girl that is pregnant and she wanted something just to bust her confidence etc… I have to say it was one of my best photoshoots ever!
    and $50… great price!!!
