i enjoy photographing families.
i really enjoy photographing families being real.
things never seem to go “perfectly” during a session, especially when a small human is involved. but, the session can still be awesome, as long as the family (and photographer) are willing to embrace the chaos that is family life with young children.
here’s the thing . . . i love the chaos that is family life with young children. i want you to show it to me. to let me into your life. to allow me to document this for you. because, one day, when you are on the other side, you will want to remember your family in the thick of it. sure, a perfectly posed family portrait from those days will do just fine. but, documentation of the truth – that’s even better. so bring your chaos. i want to capture it.
this family is expecting a new addition. we met because they wanted to document that and to celebrate their family of three before it grows to four. mom and dad – totally on board. small human – not so much. you know what made it all better? – embracing the chaos (otherwise known as a trip to the ice cream shop). i loved working with this family. and, i especially loved their willingness to go with it. the moments captured in the ice cream shop are my favorites from this session.
