What Moments Matter the Most?

So, I set out to do a family photo session this week-end.  It wasn't your typical family photo session because it involved a pig named Daisy and 2 lovely, furry bunnies.  I knew the Cavanaugh family was special, but what I didn't know was that I would get to experience an absolutely genuinely fun, beautiful family too!   We did the Family session at their home because, well frankly, how do you take a pig on a field trip?  Plus, pictures in the privacy and intimacy of your own home carry special meaning.  These pics were taken between the moments with Daisy.  Good luck getting a pig to pose, but stay tuned...

Family Lifestyle Portraits

I've talked about 'lifestyle photography' before, and this is an example of that kind of a shoot.  Some of the shoot was posed, but the expressions were priceless and all their own.  I captured some moments between the moments and got those goosebumps (brush with the divine) that I yearn for.  When I get goosebumps, I know I'm in the midst of something truly special.  So I was!  

Family Photo Sessions- What Moments Matter the Most?

What moments matter the most?  Those moments between the moments where the personalities shine through.  I've found that the still images are incredible for this and to even add more BAM, I create a video/slide show.  The video portions are quick snippets but they capture some of the movement and love that still images simply cannot.  It's a blend of the best of two worlds.  Add music and you've got memories that go on and on.  My husband Tim Buck was kind enough to get some video footage for me so this video is definitely a behind the scenes because it shows a little bit of me.  It is a memory of a wonderful afternoon family photo session for the Cavanaugh family and for me!  It might be the best part, so be sure and take a look and leave a comment for this beautiful family!  Oh and PS- Daisy was relatively cooperative, sweet and you'll just have to see for yourself how the posing went...
