Have you ever followed someone on Instagram and wished that you could be their friend in real life? No, just me? Well, that was how I felt about Shalini for 3 years as I followed her fitness, faith and family life on Instagram. When I moved to Denver, where I knew she lived, I couldn’t help but reach out to her and beg her to be my friend. Much to my surprise, she wasn’t creeped out when I slid into her DM’s. She even invited me over to hang with her and her little two year old, Callan! Ever since, we’ve been hanging out and I was blessed enough to capture this Studio Family Session of them when Callan turned two.
Ok, you caught me. So this isn’t the first time I’ve been blessed to meet someone I follow on Instagram who I love and then photograph their family. The same happened with my dear friend Angela back in 2020! I guess I’m just desperate for friends here in Colorado 😂. I have to say though, getting to meet Shalini, her husband Matt, and their sweet daughter Callan has been such a blessing. Shalini is a certified fitness coach and encourages women to love who they are AND work towards health and wholeness at the same time. She’s such an inspiration to Mama’s who work and I so love her heart for the Lord and prayer. We can all take notes from her book.
This session was the first time I got to meet this family and man was it good. We met at one of my favorite studios, Sugarhill in Longmont, and got to photographing their sweet Callan as she just turned two. We couldn’t help but also do some full Family photos and some breakouts with Mom and Dad. I just love family sessions now that I am a Mama. Capturing the seasons as they literally fly by is such a joy!
Blubaugh’s, I just love y’all! I cannot wait to grow more in community when we become literal neighbors at the end of the summer. I hope to capture more of your sweet family as the years go by ❤️
