I’ve had so much fun shooting portrait sessions out here in Nashville. Blogs make the world smaller and the Sulcer’s are proof of that. My mother-in-law works with Kari (mom in the photos) and told Jimmy (dad in the photos) about me a while back (since he’s a photographer, as well). Well he’s been reading the blog since then, invited us over for dinner a couple weeks ago, and grabbed the last Nashville session I was going to be shooting. Stories like these are one of the main reasons I love blogging :)
Anyways, as you’ll see from the photos, we got to know their daughters REAL well when we had dinner with the whole family a week before the portrait session. So the shoot was basically Ava and Dylan hour — which I instantly found out meant racing, wrestling, them shooting photos with my camera, more racing, more wrestling, and then negotiating terms with me so we could race, wrestle, and shoot with my camera some more. If you’re not a photographer, this might sound hectic. But if you are a photographer, you’ll know that this means awesome photos. The two oldest girls were just hamming it up over and over for me — photographers can’t ask for more :)
Funny story here. I was shooting and said “ahhh… come on car…” waiting for a car to move behind my subject’s head. Well, my subject’s name is “Kari” (pronounced “Car-ee” and not “care-ee”) :P Needless to say, her response was, “I don’t know what I’m supposed to do???” and my immediate thought was “what’s she talking about, she’s doing great!” Then it hit me that saying “ahhh… come on car…” sounds an awful lot like grumbling “ahhh… come on Kari…” We had a good laugh over it :)
On your mark. Get set. Go!
Hands down, my favorite image from the day. Her expression is priceless. If someone offered me a million bucks, I doubt I could duplicate this face :)
Here’s me being attacked by a miniature mob.
And here’s how Jimmy helps me :P
This is the no smile until I say ‘bananas!’ game :)
Second favorite image from the day. It’s just so sweet.
I might start shooting more portraits at home. I’ve been having a lot of fun doing them out here :)
