this family was one of the very first i photographed several years ago when i started my family. my friend here supported and encouraged me and my business over the years and i am so grateful. thank you my dear for your friendship, your referrals and your confidence in me to be your family photographer year after year.
i wanted to post all of these images to showcase what a typical session with me consists of. in order to do that i must list the things i want clients to understand about me.
#1. i take TOO many pictures
#2. i keep you longer that i say i am going to (sorry!). this is especially true when the light is super yummy. i will apologize ahead of time for the orgasmic sounds i make while snapping the shutter. i just get WAY too excited when the light is yummy… and when i have a family in front of my camera.
#3. i like for the session to be FUN. not just a memory of me taking you around and taking pictures. i want REAL smiles. (and i’ve been known to do some super silly stuff to get them. be forwarned.) and i want you to look back at the images and remember our time together as fun-not posed or still (or painful.)
#4. i will give you way too many images to choose from in your gallery for orders. (i am truly working on that but i really have a tough time picking which images YOU will love.) i’ve had clients and colleagues all comment on this fault. trust me–i am aware of this being a problem. bear with me!!
#5. i use the frame WAY too much. so feel free to tell me to keep it in the car if you are not a fan!! i just love how it relaxes people. and in this particular photoshoot the girls giggled for a LONG time because of the frame. it was early, chilly and i am sure they were hungry–but they laughed and laughed when asked to hold it. so this time it really worked~!
#6. i always use photo collages to display the photos from our session together. i like repetition and i like watching what a second moment captured looks like posted to the first one. it’s an artistic thing i guess. i just like things together better.
#7. after our photoshoot, i will probably want to be your friend. i want to stay in touch with you–friend you on facebook and watch your family grow and enjoy life via the pictures and stories you post over the years.
#8. i will want to photograph your family again. and again.
#9. so if any of this interests you–please drop me a line. i am currently booking from the second week of november but i really do only have limited spots available. i’m looking forward to making memories for YOU next!
