On Impulses, Mindy, and it All Coming Together

The cherry blossom. A simultaneous representation of both the beauty and fragility of life. Here’s to taking advantage of these fleeting times while they last.

 

Every once in a while an impulse decision leads to an awkward situation, something along those lines, but for me, never a regret.  I can always rest easy knowing that I followed my gut, and maybe worst case scenario learned a lesson.  So there I was this past Saturday night, resting after a long, beautiful and eventful wedding, thinking back on all the places we went and events I witnessed, and… well… I just wanted more!!!  So I texted one of my favorite past clients, Mindy, literally in the middle of the night.  I had photographed Mindy’s engagement pictures, bachelorette and wedding a few years back and she and I have become friends in the process, but not like, “I can text you in the middle of the night” friends.  Whatever.  I knew if I waited I would forget or get busy or whatever other life stuff.  So I texted and asked if we could bump up her maternity session a little bit – I talked about the symbolism of the new life represented by the spring blossoms as a backdrop for the new life in Mindy’s belly… I don’t know it made sense in the moment.  Being all pregnant and such Mindy apparently doesn’t sleep much and replied right away!  Next thing I know she’s trying on dresses and I’m recharging batteries and suddenly we’re in the park making magic.

I left the shoot feeling really great, like I had put extra work in and it had really paid off!  But then I got a text from Mindy.  It was just a little, “thank you” because the session made HER feel so good about herself, that it was a boost she needed, stuff like that.  Trust me, this was a 100% a selfish idea on my part, making Mindy feel great was not my purpose.  But boy do I love when things just come together like that.  When impulses turn in to these magical little snippets in time and everyone is better for it.

Anyhow, without further ado – some maternity photos of Mindy taken at Delaware Park in Buffalo, NY
