Meet the Maldonado’s…….Pay it Forward!

A couple of months ago, our family was chosen to participate in the pay it forward sessions that John Michael and Dalisa Cooper were shooting during the Very AltF Tour.  As part of our “payment” we were to do the same for another photographers family!  So we are excited to introduce you to the Maldonado Family.  We had several photographer families send us emails about why they should be selected and we picked these suspects!  (We did forward everyone else’s info on to other photographers who were looking for families to shoot!)   We had a little snafu during our first scheduled session….a hurricane named Ike!  But, we finally got to meet our family one Friday in Ennis, Texas.  Alex owns a photography and videography business in Palastine, Texas.  They have three kids and are expecting number 4!  Alex has not had his photo taken professionally since high school!!!  So we thought this was a great time to get them some new family shots.  We could have posted a 100 pics of this family as they are all so photogenic!!! But, here are a few of our favorites!  We will post the link to the Roadside Family Portrait blog once our photos have been uploaded.  Enjoy!  Thanks to the Maldonado’s for letting us get to know you…you have a GREAT family!

Alex is such a sweet guy! How cool to see his whole family…great job, guys! These are fantastic, and I am sure they will cherish these for a very, very long time!

I can not even begin to explain how incredible these images are. I see great photos all the time and part of the reason we wanted Bludoor to shoot us is because their work is super, the colors are vibrant, the composition is unique… blah, blah, blah…. but seeing MY family in these images is unreal.

Having great images that capture exactly what a family is like is something everyone should do on an ongoing basis. If you have a family, a bride, a boyfriend, a pet rock you HAVE to give Mike and ReJana a look the next time you need a photographer.

Thank you guys for an amazing gift/session/morning.

I can’t wait for the rest.

Thank you guys sooo much for taking such great pictures! It was nice to finally have Alex IN the pictures instead of having to photoshop him in. We looked at them on the tv this morning and they are so amazing!!! Of course, we can’t wait to see the rest. Thank you for being so laid back and relaxed. That’s what you have to be whenever there are 3 kids. It was great to find those qualities in a photographer.

The more I read, the better your material is.

Thank you for sharing your ideas! There are, however,
some disadvantages when it comes to practice.

When I was a college student, I thought just how one should tackle this issue but I would always come
across some questionable answers: go google it or even ask a friend.

What if my friends don’t have sufficient knowledge or expertise
to help me? What if I googled it several times and couldn’t find the answer?
That’s when posts like this you can give appropriate guidance on the issue.
