Life is messy and imperfect. I say, let’s embrace that. Family photos don’t have to be posed to be beautiful.
Your session will be all about your everyday life. Whether I’m with you for 2 hours or 12, it will be a window into what a regular day looks like to your family. I’ll have a few questions that will help guide us to find what an ideal session looks like for you, but mostly we will keep things loose and open to spontaneity. Below are a few tidbits to keep in mind for your session.
- At some point, your kids will cry, misbehave, be less than perfect. That’s OK. More than ok, that’s part of who they are right now. Working with me is a safe, no judgement zone. Parent how you need to parent but don’t worry that my camera is there.
- There will be mess. Even if you clean before I come over (though please don’t feel like you have to). Kids can be like tornados, it adds to the adventure.
- My role is more involved than a shadow but less than a visiting relative. I’ll joke with you and listen to your little ones down on their level. I’ll also be a silent observer in the background at times when the moment is quieter.
- Whether your home has lots of light or a few small windows, I will be able to create great photos that tell the story of you in your space.
If you have any questions about what a session would look like for your family, write me a note.
