From the Photographer
Meet the Lloyd family I photographed for an editorial here in Baton Rouge. The magazine and I decided to have them set up in a local coffee & beignets shop called Coffee Call. She is a homeschooling mom of 4 kids. The eldest boy has a family of his own now and lives out of state, so we had the younger three in the shoot.
When I found out that this month’s Mom Next Door was a homeschooling mom of a family of 4 awesome kids, I knew I wanted to push the feeling of love in our session. I’m a homeschooling mom. I’m new at it, but still beginning to understand the commitments, the sacrifices, the justifications, and most of all…the LOVE behind homeschooling. Having your children around you all day can invoke so many emotions throughout the day, as well as, the years…but the first thing that made me smile about this session was thinking about the freedom homeschooling provides…freedom to eat beignets and drink coffee any ol’ time you feed the need!
I wanted to send a HUGE thank you to Gayle and her family…for their patience and kindness during our session. You all were so beautiful, inside and out.
