Last night I got meet the sweetest little family and capture their first ever family portraits! It was a combo family/engagement session because even though Stacey and Dimitris are married, they are having another ceremony in Greece with their full families this summer and they wanted tons of pictures of the two of them. And we went to one of my favorite places to shoot, the Shrine of St. Anthony, and, yet again, it did not disappoint! All their trees were right on the cusp from flowering to leaves which meant it was the perfect amount of different colors to make some gorgeous portraits.
More importantly than the pretty surroundings, this family is outrageously kind y’all. Their little Athena was a legitimate princess with eyes that were like sparkly daggers to my soul!!! I cannot get over how adorable and happy she is! She must get it from her mom who is like a human sunflower. Stacey was bubbly from the first email and meeting her in person just confirmed my suspicions…she is the nicest person ever! And can we talk about how supremely gorgeous she is?! And Dimitris is one lucky man to have these two ladies in his life. He has a killer smoulder with an even more fun laugh. Plus, rolling up in a Mustang with his shades on made him probably the coolest dad I’ve ever photographed.
As you can tell, it was a night for the ages and I cannot wait to share these images with you! My favorite part about them is seeing the real love and happiness this family oozes. I feel like I need to plan a trip to Greece now!
