Bottchers 001

You will not meet any two people who have more joy and excitement for life than Jason and Georgina Bottcher. I am convinced that the world is a brighter place because they are here. It is people like Jason and Georgina who take any situation, laugh about it, and know that it will all work out just fine in the end. They are the “glass half full,” “lemonade out of lemons” type of people that the rest of the world wishes to be like. The attitude that Jason and Georgina have is absolutely contagious – I love to be around them because they make me a more joyful person. It’s not surprising, then, that their 7 month old son, Austin, would have the same personality they have. He was such a great baby to work with – happy, smiling, and giggling – even though he had already had such a long day because of a meeting that lasted longer than anticipated.

Unfortunately, this meeting caused our photography session to begin later than expected, and we lost sunlight rather quickly. Rather than be upset about this, I had to take it as Jason and Georgina would and make the best out of the situation. I was able to experiment with Photoshop more and try different editing techniques that I normally wouldn’t have taken the time to try. Lighting. Exposure. Textures. There is an endless world of possibilities. It was great to dive a little further into some of these things. And I must admit, I’m pretty thrilled with the results.  I would love to get your feedback too! Please feel free to add a comment to the bottom of this blog post letting me know which ones are your favorites and why! I love hearing what you have to say!

Jason and Georgina – It was so great to spend time with you both and get to know little Austin a bit better! Your family is truly precious and a joy to be around. I appreciate your ability to laugh at life and at yourselves–trying to be more like you helps me not take life too seriously. Don’t ever lose that wonderful spark in your personalities! It is so needed for all of the people in this world that you will come into contact with! Love you guys!
