For every session I always ask what the story is behind WHY you want to book a session. It’s such a simple question, but it really makes you think about why capturing these photos are important.
For the Boyd family, they wanted to capture this new time in their lives in their new forever dream home with their daughter. When chatting with Grace she said,
“I love life. I love everyday and I want to just capture pure emotion and love.”
I think it’s important to let you know a few things before photographing your family. Ground rules, if you will 🙂
1.) I will become a fly on the wall and photograph you in your element. Capturing the love, genuine emotion, and what makes you thrive as a family. I will also encourage snuggles, and run around with your kids.
2.) I want to capture what’s REAL. That means I won’t ask you to look at me and smile, or pose you in awkward poses. The heart of your session is YOU, and telling your story through photographs. It’s perfectly okay if no one is looking at the camera, in fact, that is even better!
3.) My passion is storytelling and capturing emotion. I want to make you feel something. With that being said, if posed memories are what you are looking for, then I probably am not the photographer for you and that is okay! But, if you trust me enough and let the “perfection” guard down I promise you your session will not lack emotions, memories, and pure love.
This is an incredible example of a family who trusted me with their story, and that is when sessions like this happen. Can you can see the genuine emotion and feel the love between this family? This is why I do what I do, and I hope you can see it now to..
