When I first met Amber the day of the shoot I knew she looked familiar but couldn’t put my finger on it where I knew her from. It was about an hour into our session when I realized how I knew her. I use to work at Electric Beach Tanning salon, in Grand Terrace, many many moons ago, and Amber used to come in. It has been years since I saw her which is why I couldn’t figure out how I knew her. Her daughter Hailey is right around my sons age and luckily I had my family with me that day. Her and Logan ended up playing towards then end of the shoot which worked out to my advantage. When we met Hailey was sleeping in the car, when she woke up she was not a happy camper at first. I can’t blame her, I wouldn’t want some weird lady with a camera in my face if I just woke up from a nice nap. It took some time for her to warm up to me , but after that, we were all good. We drove to a couple different spots in Oak Glen, basically if something caught my eye we stopped, I love shoots like that. We ended up at Riley’s farm and had a great time running around there. I love that I was able to capture all the different faces of Hailey, she is quiet the character.
Amber and Hailey, thank you for such a fun shoot.
