Ducks and Bunnies 2020

Ducks and Bunnies 2020

This was the tenth year we have done the Ducks & Bunnis mini-sessions  at the studio and I have to say it was a year like no other.  With concerns over Covid-19, many sessions cancelled and this was the lowest number of sessions we have ever done, BUT each and every one of the sessions we did was AWESOME!  We had so much fun creating Easter portraits in the studio gardens.  Its such a joy to watch the children interact with the animals!  To all the families who kept their sessions and helped us make it through the Covid shut down, I thank you from the bottom of my heart!

COVID19 is NO fun.  We miss our friends, our routines, our sense of normal.  I desperately miss being in the studio, playing with all the kiddos, snuggling all the babies and spending time with all my clients.  I am so blessed to be a part of a very large network of professional photographers and through this we have stayed connected online to give each other support and friendship.  One of the most importrant of these groups is my home guild- the Tallahassee Professional Photographers Guild.  

This group is where I first put myself out there to network with other professional photographers.  13 years later, this group is some of my closest friends on the planet and they are my “co-workers” in a sense.  We celebrate each others successes and we help comfort in times of failure.  They have my back and I have theirs through thick and thin, so connecting tonight online instead of in person for our monthly meeting was just what I needed.

I was thrilled that we could still hold our monthly image competition and that my peers chose two of my images as the best in their categories. 

Super proud mama moment when the image of my babies was chosen as the winner for Portrait of a Group!!  Then I also won the special challenge that had to be GOLD themed.  I am always honored when my fellow professional photographers choose my image as the best, it just means SO much!

Belcher Family Maternity

Belcher Family Maternity

So excited for this new journey with the Belcher family!  It all started MANY years ago with an engagement session, then a wedding, then the first maternity, first baby and now maternity with baby #2!  I LOVE when I have the privilege of photographing a family throughout their journey.  Its so incredibly rewarding and it allows us to build a relationship where I really know their style, their personality and the things they love.  Now we are in the countdown for baby #2 and I am hoping she holds out until COVID19 calms down a bit more in Tallahassee so her daddy can be in the delivery room!  Y’all cross your fingers and say a prayer with me!

Vickers Family

Vickers Family

After years of being a “girls only” family the Vickers Family is adding a baby boy!  Yay!  The girls are so excited to be big sisters and love on their little brother!  The one good thing about a stay-home order is that you get lots and lots of extra sibling snuggle time with the new baby!  

I am so glad we were able to do maternity portraits for this beautiful family before the shut down!

The studio has been so busy in the last year that I have neglected to post a LOT of celebration posts about how my images have done in competition!  I have made a New Years resolution to celebrate more and share with y’all all the exciting news!!

This month at the Tallahassee Professional Photographers Guild meeting my images won Best Group Portrait and Best Portrait of a Child… and then I won the overall Print of the Month!  Yay!  Its even more meaningful to me because of the images that won these titles.

The group image of the Charles family is one I adore not only because its a great family portrait, but because I love the people IN the photo.  I have been photographing the Charles family since their oldest was a toddler and each and every session is awesome, memorable and a heck of a lot of fun!  

The portrait of a child is a story near and dear to my heart and it is an image of healing, self love and growth.  Almost daily I have someone mention Bri’s story or the Phoenix Project I am currently working on.  To read more about Bri and the Phoenix Project, go to: https://www.longsphotography.com/tallahassee-photographer-charity-phoenix-project
