If you have followed me for awhile, you will recognize these faces! The Copeland’s are the family behind The Cake Mamas, and I have had the privilege of working with them several times over the last few years. In fact, if you haven’t been in there, go check out their cakes & cupcakes (the Banana Cream Pie is ahmaaazing) and you will get to see some of my pictures decorating their store, too!
Janelle & Eddie just celebrated their 10 year anniversary, and they wanted a photo shoot. Not just a regular anniversary session, though. They wanted pictures they never got when they were married and they wanted their daughters, Jasmyn, Kaylah and Jordan, to be included. Eddie & Janelle are two of the most passionate, hard working people I know. Their life is busy and full, but their love is definitely the center of it all. As we were talking about just this and their vision for the shoot, we decided the inspiration would be how in the middle of the chaos of life, their love stands still. What better place to photograph this then smack in the middle of Sunset Blvd in Hollywood at rush hour on a Friday night? It was ambitious of us, and I was crazy nervous that we wouldn’t be able to pull it off. We stopped traffic a few times (thank you Nikki for having my back!), pushed through crowded streets and ended up with some amazing shots.
Thank you for trusting my vision, Janelle & Eddie. I am so happy to give you pictures you waited 10 years to have! Can’t wait to photograph the next 10!
