Sometimes gems just fall into your lap when you’re eating your morning cereal.

This beautiful family had a photoshoot planned with another photographer who, at the last minute, had to cancel. They were already dolled up and ready to take photos so when my friend Ang (from my first maternity shoot) contacted me and told me this, I knew I had to help! Within 20 minutes they had a new photographer, and I’m so excited it was me. They were a pleasure to work with, and Otis, their son, was hysterical to be around! I even got a nice big hug from him at the end of our session.

Take all opportunities that come your way. You never know the great people you’ll get to meet if you just say “yes.”
