I've been photographing the Wilson's for longer than I can even remember...without doing some math. But who wants to do math? So let's just say a long time. Melissa is a photographer too. One of the only photographers in Pensacola who I trust with my own family photos.
(Melissa is also one of my back up birth photographers. So to all of my expectant mamas, if I absolutely have to send someone to your birth in my place, you might just get Melissa. I assure you, you will love her as much as I do.)
What I love most about our sessions is that Melissa and Ace are always up for anything. Always willing to indulge my ideas for lifestyle sessions. I think I'm really beginning to rub off on her, because this time Melissa came to me with a kick butt idea. A donut shop family session at their favorite place, Maynard's Donut Company. Having been secretly hoping that another client would ask for me to document their Saturday morning walks to Krispy Kreme (you know who you are), I jumped on it.
Melissa and Ace were perfect as always, but Juliet was the real star of the show. She was SERIOUS about her donuts. She took absolutely every single chance she possibly could to grab and stuff more donuts into her mouth. When mom and dad finally said 'no more', oh buddy there were tears. Big, pitiful, make you want to give her all of the donuts in the case kind of tears. Click play to see it all.
A HUGE thanks to Danny at Maynard's for letting us invade and distracting all of your other customers with our shenanigans.
