Oh my goodness. This was literally one of the most fun things I’ve ever done as a photographer. A few weeks prior to our giveaway, I took my youngest, Asher, to the five acres of Sunflower fields at Dorothea Dix Park. We were sunflower field newbies, and were totally there to just wander around and look through the fields. But here’s what I noticed: There were SO many people there, and the vast majority of them had a camera/phone/selfie stick in their hands. I mean people were taking photos everywhere! As I was walking, I kept telling my little boy, “I should have brought my camera! I’d love to take people’s photos for them!” And then I had an idea. What if I came back with my camera with the intent to bless people with free photos? And from there the wheels just continued to turn.

What started as a small idea, became a spontaneous, fun, riddle filled giveaway! We had so many past NRP clients come out and it was so sweet to get to see each of your faces again! As people waited in line many others who were simply roaming the fields hopped in line in order to spend some time in front of the camera! We even photographed those who totally didn’t expect it! Y’all’s reactions were the best! We had families visiting from California all the way to families who live just around the corner. We had puppies, pregnant mamas, women in hats, and sweet extended families all together for some time in the sunflowers.

The cherry on top for this Mama, was getting to experience all of this with my oldest child. Those that were there can definitely attest to this, but for those that weren’t: Eden killed it as my assistant. This evening wouldn’t have been near the success it was without her help, great attitude, and warm personality. She even took some amazing photos of the flowers! It was such a joy to spend the evening with my daughter serving each of you. You had the most amazing attitudes in the crazy heat and were so patient waiting for your turn in line. And somehow y’all ALL managed to look AMAZING while I was for sure drenched in sweat. This evening reminded me how much I love my job, and each of you wonderful people! It was so fun giving something away without needing anything in return. Thank you thank you for joining me in this spontaneous giveaway! I had a blast!
