My favorite images are the ones that tell a story about the people in them... the kind that make you feel like you were there.
You might be hesitant about a photo session in your home. Maybe the house is a wreck, the kids have turned the living room into a playroom, clothes are strung from laundry room to bedroom, and the muddy paw prints are still on the kitchen floor. I get that but don't say "NO" yet.....
Think back to *your* childhood. I bet you don't remember if there was dust on the bookcase or if the couch was used for folding laundry or if the living room needed to be repainted. You remember the shag carpet in your room, your pet hampster, and riding big wheels in the mud on a rainy day. Your kids are not analyzing your tidiness. That stuff just doesn't matter to them.
Your kids are comfortable in their home, mess and all. They feel safe and loved and secure there. This is where your family can be themselves.
I want to to document the relationships between your family members, not dishes in the sink (unless your kids are washing them!!). Your life and your home doesn't need to be magazine ready to be wonderful. It's all about being together. Having a session in your house or yard or wherever your family loves to be together will be a flashback for your kids in 50 years and they can show *their kids* about the details that made up their life.
You do not need to impress me, or "keep up with the Joneses". This session is for YOUR FAMILY. These sessions are for ALL OF US who aren't perfect, me included!!
Think how much your kids have changed even from last year. Don't miss THIS time. Let's schedule the easiest photo session of your life, and the one that will mean the most to you.
PLEASE don't put it off. It will be the best gift you give your kids.
This is perfect for documenting a glimpse of an ordinary day. Pick a simple activity that encourages your family to be together and do what they do in a normal ordinary day.
FOUR HOUR SESSION $350
You choose what time to start your session and I'll join you! Do the laundry, have the kids do their chores and your husband mow the yard, let the kids play, do your day with all the mess, and chaos, and a kid in time out for drawing on the wall. Just do your ordinary day! You don't have to go anywhere (sometimes getting the kids out of the house is a chore itself), but if errands are on your schedule, I'll go with you!! Perfect session for larger families so I can spend more time with each person.
