She called me late Thursday afternoon. I wouldn’t have answered since it was after business hours, but the area code wasn’t local. I thought maybe it was a lab calling with questions to an order. Instead it was this sweet mama. She’d wanted to know if I had any sessions available over the weekend. Normally, I probably wouldn’t have, but with this dreadful stifling heat, my schedule was a bit free. They could only do it this weekend because they were going back home. “What? You don’t live here? You just googled photographers and found me and want to book me?” I don’t know if those words came out of my mouth, but they definitely were running through my head.
You see, it’s very rare that someone calls Thursday to book a session for Sunday; even rarer that they are from a city 4.5 hours away. Sometimes I need to be pinched to realize that I really get to do this awesome job that I love so much 🙂
So Sunday came, and we met in the park. Mom and dad booked me for a purpose: the Crystal Charity Ball’s annual Children’s Book. I hadn’t really heard about this book but when they told me about it, how could I not look into it? The Crystal Charity Ball is an amazing charity that has donated over 90 million dollars to children’s charities around the Dallas area for over 50 years. Amazing!

Anyhow, I know you’ve been waiting, mama! Here’s your sneak peek!
