You know it's probably time for a new family photo session. A good image of everyone smiling at the camera, now that would be great! But for me as your photographer, I'm looking for so much more! Let me show you what I am seeing during our time together.
I see a group of people who live a busy life but whose favorite activity is to be together.
I see siblings who are growing into forever friends.
I see kids who are unique and precious and spunky and sweet.
I see a dad whose best and favorite "work" is playing with his kids.
I see a couple who still really likes each other. One who may have been through a lot over the years and still picks each other.
I see a mom who probably questions a million times over if things are going "ok," if she's doing it all "right," wondering how it's all turning out. But mostly I see a mom who doesn't have a thing to worry about. I see the way her kids look at her. I see the way she holds them or hugs them or knows EXACTLY what makes them smile. These are her people, and she's cultivating so much love among them.
So I'm going to be really honest and say that lots of photographers can snap a photo of your family. They may even be able to get everyone looking and smiling! But I want you to know that I'm looking for so. much. more. I want you to SEE what I SEE when I'm with you.
I want you to see that while life isn't always perfect or beautiful, there are so many beautiful moments. And there's a whole lot of love coursing through that chaos. I see it, and I want you to see what I see.
