The party starts when the Gbadamosi family arrives. When they came into our studio for their consultation prior to their session, it was all laughs, jokes and story telling. We accomplished what they came to accomplish – plan out their session and pick out their keepsakes, but by the time they left we felt like we had not only made friends (I say that about all my clients, but honestly, we do), we had learned so much about their story, and our sides hurt from laughing.
Their session matched the enthusiasm of their consultation. Within the first 15 minutes, I was bent over aching from laughing so much (I literally had to stop photographing), and I remember quite clearly realizing in that moment how. much. I love my job! I am incredibly lucky to be able to spend time with clients like this family. They’re just good people! They love, cherish, respect, and embrace each other for who they are. When you’re around them, you’re welcomed into that warmth and friendship.
The Gbadamosi’s love with zeal. Shy isn’t in their vocabulary and they are as close as one could hope for their families. The girls modelled with expertise and ease, and the men’s posing skills were just as strong. Mom and dad couldn’t keep a straight face as they took their portraits together, and I admired their ability to have so much fun with one another after so many years of marriage. The images with the entire family were just as full of energy and happiness, just as they had hoped for.
This session was a perfect way to end their season of everyone under the same roof, as each member was soon going their own way. Gbadamosi’s, I think it’s safe to say we had a blast with you and loved getting to meet each one of you. Can’t wait until next time!
