In this day and age where everything is so uncertain I am going to tell you that having these moments and this story to tell is absolutely a necessity! Professional family photos are going to be such an important piece of your story and your children’s story, and their children’s story for that matter!
If I have learned nothing else in the last year, it is to stop putting things off. We are not promised tomorrow or the day after. I know as a mama myself, how important capturing these moments with my children are. My own kids are at that age now where they would rather be out doing stuff with their friends than having a family movie night at home with Mom and Dad. Not going to lie, it makes me sad. BUT I know that I need to treasure the moments that they do want to hang out with us. One of those moments is always at family photos. Yes, even though they are older now, we still do them. No it is not always easy to get everyone excited to do them – but once we are there it is always fun.
I think about this a lot. As a parent, I feel like it is part of my job to ensure that my children have a story to tell. Something to pass down from generation to generation. As a photographer, a storyteller, it is my job to ensure that all of my clients have this as well. I like to think of each time you see me it is a new chapter to add to your book – the story of your family. It is such an important responsibility and one that I take very seriously.
They don’t stay little like this for long. Trust me, I know. It seems like one day I was holding my own kids like the family above, and the next they are both taller then me. It was like I blinked and BAM! They grew up. I want you to have these moments, forever. I would love to be the one who captures them for you!
I know that the traditional hour long photography sessions isn’t for everyone. While, I adore these types of professional family photos because the amount of time the sessions allow for really lets me get to know the families, my shorter mini sessions are just as fun! These are short 30 minute sessions that I run back to back for 1 day only twice a year. As you can imagine they are a pretty hot commodity. If I have peaked your interest even a little bit you can check out my upcoming spring mini sessions here. There are just a couple of spots left!
I’ve got you Mama! My full family portrait experience is just that! We work closely together to style, and plan every aspect of your session. I even have a client closet with toddler outfits and dresses for Mom. We go through my amazing client session location guide to choose the perfect spot to bring your vision to life. You can see my professional family photos portfolio here. If you have already decided that this is it for you and that you NEED me to tell YOUR story, lets chat!
It isn’t lost on me how important my job is. Professional family photos is an investment, something most people save for. I take my responsibility very seriously and my promise to you is to tell your story and capture your family as they are in this moment! If you want to keep up with what we are up to lets be friends on social media! My Facebook is here or you can find me on Insta here. It would be my honor to tell YOUR story Mama!
Me too — I can’t wait to start creating YOUR perfect EJP portrait experience!
