I love family photoshoots because each member has the opportunity to express their uniqueness. Each person contributes different quirks, traits, and perspectives to a family. So, when everyone comes together for a photoshoot, meshing personalities becomes fun and exciting. Sometimes, even a little chaotic. My goal in photographing families is to, first of all, capture memories based on the time of life that everyone is in. Each and every day all of us are changing and evolving. This is why it is important to capture the here and the now, because one day you are going to want to look back and remember who you were, who filled your life with joy, and what trends shaped your life. If it weren’t for pictures, we wouldn’t be able to compare the chapters of our lives. Another goal of mine is to celebrate the wonderful institution of family. Like I said before, when families are brought together it creates a joyous dynamic. That being said, allow me to capture the essence of your family through photos. Don’t what another moment to reach out!
The best piece of advice that I have for people who are considering a family photoshoot is not to wait. Family photos need to be renewed annually because we are evolving everyday. Every chapter of life is sacred, and your family deserves to have your life commemorated through photographs. Personally, my family has made it a point to gather once a year and have photos taken of us. I have never appreciated a decision more in my life because reminiscing brings me so much joy. When I look back on some of my own family’s photoshoots I can recall what I was doing at that time of life, how I felt in the moment, and who constantly invested in my life. I want the same happiness for your children in the years to come. I want them to look back on these family photos and realize how much time and effort their parents and/or siblings put into loving and spending time with them. In addition, I want you, as parents, to look back and acknowledge the amazing job you did with your kiddos. Parents have the ability to create beings, souls, and humans destined for greatness. This amazing fact deserves to be celebrated and shared.
