I'm retroactively updating my blog with the launch of my new website. SO many good memories to look back on! The Verma family session will always have a special place for me. This was the session where I felt this is it! These are the type of images I want to be capturing! The lighting, the feel, the experience, was on point for me, and I hope it was for the Verma women as well.
Videl had reached out to me a few months before to coordinate capturing some images for her and her daughters with her mom before she went back home to India. Here's what Videl had to say after I posted their initial preview on my business FB page:
My mom was in town and we wanted her to take home some great memories with her grandkids. Leilani is such an amazing photographer. She was so patient with my 4 year old and we saw the preview and we are absolutely in love with the moments she captured!
We decided that we'd have the session at Beaver Lake in Sammamish, Washington.
I LOVED that Videl wanted to capture moments of her children with their grandmother! Anyone who knows me well, knows how important family history is to me. I think it's important not only to research the past, but to document the present. I wish so much that I would have gotten more images of myself with my own grandparents before their passing. It's one reason why I take so many pictures of my own kids with their grandparents. I'm so happy that Videl saw the importance of capturing those memories as well!
