Jeremie's Family: A Sneak Peek! | Hampton Roads Family Photography

So... my friend Jeremie contacted me a while back to schedule a shoot for her family while they were all gathered here for her sister's nursing school graduation. I, of course, screamed like a little girl, ran around the house, told DJ about 16 times, and then... all professional-like, calmly emailed her back and was all, "Sure. I'd love to Jeremie. I can't wait to see you!" *Snort*

So, the big day was Saturday and, as per usual, the weather was supposed to be awful. Rain. Thunderstorms. More Rain.

I did what any self-respecting photographer would do. I ran to Target and bought a handful of fun colorful umbrellas... and then proceeded to become a neurotic mess checking the internet weather site, like, every five minutes... I mean, I hoped for the best.

I left the bazaar early and hiked on up the road to Williamsburg for the shoot ... with my awesome new friend and assistant, Jessica.

Here are a few... I had a hard time choosing, so there's more than usual !

This is Jeremie (on the right) with her gorgeous immediate family. I asked them to sing their favorite song... fully expecting to hear something along the lines of 'ABC's' or 'Twinkle Twinkle'... you know, something cute for the kids. Nope, Jeremie's husband belted out some awesome song and ohmigod-he-can-sing-keep-going-keep-going! Jeremie calls him the 'Karaoke King'. Poifect.

And Jeremie's two sons, 'C' and 'J'. 'C' played football with Trey back in the Oki days and little 'J' was in his mama's belly when I saw him last! Time flies folks. It flies.

This is Jeremie's gorgeous (and, uhm, OBVIOUSLY very well-educated-super-smart-and-totally-graduated) sister (Jocelyn) and her husband (Ken). There's something about this height difference that I love...that's so endearing. Or maybe that just reminds me of my best friends Dev and Lis... this picture makes me smile. I have no idea what we were talking about... actually... yes I do, but I will not embarrass all of us that way... nope. No way :)

This is 'M' a very-cool-probably-way-too-cool-for-all-this-portrait-phooey teenager. He, however, did an awesome job interacting with the kids and totally humoring me. All whilst being very cool... did I mention that?

And here's Jocelyn's little girl, 'M', in the arms of their neice, 'G'. THIS may be my favorite picture of the shoot. Ugh. It just pulls at my heart. 'G' was so awesome with the kids. SO AWESOME! Could I please employ you as a full-time babysitter?!

And, uhm, Jeremie, would it be weird if I had a ginormous picture of YOUR family in MY living room?! Seriously.

And then we had to get some total family shots! Jeremie's parents (in the middle) had come down for the graduation as well...

But... just wait...

We can't be normal! We had our umbrellas out (b/c OF COURSE it started raining on us) and then, I made everyone JUMP! ONE! TWO! THREE! JUUUUUUMP! This picture is awesometastic b/c just look at their faces! LOOOve it!

So there's your peek! More coming to your inbox soon!
