Mary contacted me a few months ago and asked me to shoot her family’s pictures at Disneyland. Engagement sessions I’ve done at Disneyland before and they are tough. You have to shoot around the crowds. People walk in front of you. The light isn’t my most favorite. And then I thought about throwing kids into the mix… Basically I told Mary I thought it was a bad idea. She convinced me to try it and I must admit that Mary was right. Disneyland was perfect for her family. You can tell that Disneyland holds a very special place in Mary’s heart. She has many great childhood memories from going there with her family and I love how she is carrying that on with her own children.
We got very lucky with the weather. The week prior to our shoot the weather said rain. But, we waited it out and decided the night before it was a go although weather.com still said rain. And guess what? We got no rain! Because everyone else thought it was supposed to be raining the park was as empty as Disneyland can possibly ever be.
Thanks to the Chandler family for being so awesome and dealing with the crazy weather! I had a blast and I hope you all did too! Here’s your slideshow!
Be very careful when riding backwards on Thunder Mountain! Almost lost my brand spakin’ new 16 – 35! Yikes! And also, I think I got whip lash! Dangerous! But, I love the shot
