This past Sunday I meet with the Saycocie Family because Mr. & Mrs. Saycocie decided it was time to take some new family photos. While they were at it, they also wanted to have some couples photos made to celebrate their up coming 15 year wedding anniversary.
When Maricarmen, Mrs. Saycocie, first contacted me she had a vague idea of the style of photos she wanted made and was not 100% sure where she wanted the session to be held. What she did know was, she wanted them made outdoors and not in a studio. Once Maricarmen informed me of the date she would like to have her family session, I knew immediately where we would shoot it. I informed Maricarmen that I already had another photo session scheduled for the date she was requesting, but I would still be able to accommodate her family if they could meet me, at The Old Hidalgo Pump House, at least 2 hours before my other session began. My plan was to meet with my other client here already, so why not kill two birds with one stone.
The Pump House, located in Hidalgo Texas, is a wonderful location that provides photographers with many photo opportunities. When I arrived with my assistant we were the only photography team present, but that did not last long. By the time the Saycocie Family had arrived the Pump House grounds were teaming with photographers. A one point I counted 8 different sessions happening at the same time. The good news, the Pump House grounds are large enough that photographers could not possibly get in each others way.
We utilized over 10 spots as back drops and still had angles and corners that went unexplored. All in all, we had a good time and came back with some great images.
Thank you Mr. & Mrs Saycocie for having me as your photographer, it was truly a pleasure. I wish you both a Happy Anniversary and hope our paths meet again.
