Lucky Duck

Once upon a time, a photographer was on a shoot that had her laughing so hard, her cheeks hurt!

Her clients were so cool and funny that even mid-shoot, she made a point to stop and appreciate everything.  She photographed kids who arrived revved up to play and beautiful parents who had the best blend of organized and relaxed that 2 hours disappeared in a blink.

The location had diverse backdrops, two climates (freeze-your-bum-off and almost-warm — haha), and multiple types of light.  There was also a lone black duck who followed the family and photographer around like an extra on a movie set!  There was hot cider, loud animal sounds, a vista that overlooked the bay, and lots of embracing, carrying, and chasing to keep warm.

This photographer is so lucky.

I never would’ve believed it when I was in my 20s and working late into the night at a corporate job, but this lucky duck is ME! ❤️
