Slowly catching up on all of my blogs for my sessions from November! This fall has been the craziest season of the year and I am so thankful to all of my clients (and blog readers!!). You make me LOVE being an Orlando family photographer and I am forever grateful for you! Today, I have another very special fall family session from Chisholm Park to share. The Collings family has looked a little different the past two years, and I am so excited that I was able to capture their new family just before Thanksgiving.
I first met Cassandra when she became my mom’s pre-k assistant at the local preschool 10 years ago! Cassandra is now a pre-k teacher at the school and brings us all so much joy to be around. She is an amazing single mother to two crazy smart teenagers. Aiden and Isabel were students at the preschool back in the day, which brought Cassandra to us. It really shocks me every time I see them because I’ve known them since they were 4!
The Collings family is stronger than ever in 2020 and it’s in part thanks to their newest addition! Natasha was adopted by the Collings crew the day after Christmas last year and they were surprised when she arrived to her new home on New Year’s Eve, just when they needed her most! What a better way to start a new year, am I right? Although 2020 has been crazy for everyone, the Collings family got a pretty great deal. Natasha is the sweetest and most lovable black lab. Plus, they named her after Black Widow herself! I love a good Marvel reference!!
It was time for Cassandra and the family to get some updated photos with their new pup. After a few weather reschedules (honestly, what’s new this year?), we finally made it out to Chisholm Park for a mini fall family session. No one really knew how Natasha would do, as it was her first professional photoshoot (and the ones at home NEVER go according to plan). She was the absolute best and by the end, wanted to be the ONLY one looking at the camera!
Cassandra, thank you for always trusting me with your family and allowing me to capture these memories for you. We all love you and are cheering you on! Friends, take a peek at the Collings’ fall family session below and make sure to leave them some love!
