It’s hard to talk about the Paulson family without talking about my journey as a photographer because they have been with me from the beginning.
When I decided that I wanted to start WCP, I started as most photographers do, by offering Mini Sessions! Gabby and Brian were some of my very first clients! Gabby was pregnant and wanted a Christmas themed maternity session.
A few months later, Gabby gave birth to Ella and came in for a newborn session! I was just learning studio lighting and had only done a few newborn sessions. Ella was sweet, but it didn’t take me long to realize that newborn photography was not my gift.
Gabby booked me again for an Easter session. This was a turning point in the quality of my work. We shot the session at Bonaventure, and it was one of my favorite family sessions.
Gabby and Ella are my go-to models. Any time I think of something I want to try, I call Gabby and she is always excited to participate! I can’t remember whose idea the milk bath session was, but the results were beautiful!
It’s been a year since Ella was born, and Gabby wanted to do a session to celebrate. As my brand has evolved, I knew that I wanted to do a Glamour Session with her and Ella, as traditional cake-smash sessions really aren’t my style. I am so proud of how far I have come and so thankful that I’ve made some great friends along the way!
