*bear with me as I try to articulate my thoughts on this shoot*
I have photographed MANY families over the past several years. Of those families, I have experienced nearly every type of scenario possible from the “perfectly dressed, sit and smile family” to the “family of uncooperative kids and overly stressed parents” and everything in between. And by the way, my kids would probably fit better into the second category…
I have learned so much from each experience of photographing different families but this shoot struck a heartstring when I loaded the images on my computer and watched them appear one by one. Instantly I saw what I long for my photos to portray: a genuine connection. It was the way the son’s face lit up in his mother’s arms, the daughter doting on her daddy, a tender kiss between mom and dad that was unrehearsed…. I loved seeing the interaction between this family and it has made me stop several times this week to take a moment with one of my kids and just be.
Think about the little moments, the simple things, the tiny details that we miss each and every day when we don’t take time to enjoy them.
“P” family, it was truly an honor and privilege to meet and photograph your family. You have been a huge blessing to me! Enjoy the sneak peek; the rest of your gallery will be ready shortly.
p.s. 25 comments from friends and family = an 8×10 on me. : )
