The story of the way your family loves and moves through life is a beautiful one, on the easy days full of laughter, in the hard days full of tears, and all the days in between...the extraordinary and the seemingly mundane. Life is beautiful, even when it's not.
Before we meet I will find out the things that make your family joyous and what you want you and your children to always remember. When we meet, my goal is to photograph those things and everything I see in your family that makes my heart go pitter patter.
You’re invited to love out loud with your hugs, tickles, kisses, cuddles, laughs, by playing, by singing, by dancing, however it is that you love your family. There's no need for super posed photos or saying "cheese". Your job at the session is to relax, play, love your family.
I love when we can actually keep the focus off the camera for most of the session. It can be fun to plan an activity. It can be as simple as fixing and eating breakfast. Something your family loves. I love when I get to join you in the heart of your home, where you live and love for at least a portion of the session. Then we can continue at your home or go to another nearby location. There's always a chance I'll ask you to do something that seems weird...like everyone standing on the couch or in a field of tall grass. Just go with it and it'll be completely worth it.
With all of this said, it doesn’t mean that we never have tears or bickering siblings. What do we do? We relax, roll with it, and smile.
Why do I believe so passionately in photography done this way? Because I believe this is one of the greatest gifts we could ever give our children. For them to be able to look back at pictures from their childhood and see and truly feel what that time…that moment…that place…that snuggle…was like and how much they were loved. What do we look at and hold onto to remember our pasts? Pictures or videos. That’s it. The best part…they will show their kids…and their grandkids. The love just continues on.
All inclusive session collections were created to not only simplify things, but also to ensure that your images stay together and your story is told throughout the generations. I want for you to walk away with all of your images, they belong together and tell your family’s love story. I also want you to walk away with the highest quality album and/or prints so you and your loved ones can snuggle on the couch, with these images in hand, remembering all the love…the joy…the hard times…and all the beauty.
