The bond between a parent and their children is unlike any other; it can be beautifully captured in a photograph. But if you’re anything like me, you’re always the one behind the camera in family photos and hardly ever in them. Even when we have our family photos professionally taken, I’m always too busy worrying about everyone else and don’t get to relax and enjoy the photo session. The photos also tend to focus more on the kids and I hardly ever get to capture moments of us being ourselves.
I’ve recently been reminded that life is truly precious and filled with moments we sometimes take for granted. I want to be in more photos with my children and this is why I have come to realize how important family photo sessions are. Now is the perfect time to capture memories with your children, regardless of where you or your kids are in life.
I want to make our photo session work for you. So whether you want a few photos with your children, or you simply want some memorable pictures of you and your own mother, I’m here to guide you. This is your chance to get creative and really make a photo session about you and your kids and the special bond that you share.
Bring along anything that will make you all feel comfortable and will help you spend some time together during the session. For example, you might want to bring a blanket and some of your daughter’s favorite books so that we can capture your snuggles and story time. Maybe you want to stop and grab some ice-treats with your son or bring along a game that you both enjoy playing. This is all about creating a space where you can enjoy being together so that we can perfectly capture these moments for you.
If you’re looking for an alternative to the traditional family portraits, semi-candid portrait session will probably work better for you. Keep in mind that although a family portrait can be a wonderful way to capture those special moments of you and your children through the years, it does require some extra effort to get everyone together and in the same place. With my approach, your family photo session will be easier style and coordinate. Most importantly, we’ll capture that unique dynamic that says to you “this is myfamily.”
These sessions don’t take very long and will free up your schedule to spend more quality time together. These sessions provide a space where those natural interactions and emotions can play out, resulting in a mini time capsule of your current relationship. You might even want to make this an annual tradition so that you can beautifully document the relationship with your children. And, as an incentive, I offer multi-year discounts.
