We have a lot of questions about how to create the perfect family photo session-
What is the perfect time of day?
What are the perfect clothes to wear?
Can you help us with the perfect poses?
On and on and on and on
In Search of the Perfect Family Photo Session
These are great questions, but my answer is: Every family photo session is perfect just as it is. I know, I know...it sounds trite. What we crave most in our lives is connection, love and all those intangibles which leave us feeling all warm and fuzzy. If a family has some of this, I can bring out more and we are all set no matter what the weather, time of day or outfit they wear.
The weather was cold and windy. The kids were so energetic and excited to be in a new park. They were buzzing with anticipation of playing together and having pictures taken with their grandmother. This was her first experience having photos taken with her grandchildren. I was buzzing with excitement too!
Are You Waiting for the Perfect Time?
You know who you are! If you've ever uttered the words: when I lose ___ pounds, when my hair grows out, when I'm not so tired...
I get it! I've been there and then I realized I was rarely in any pictures. I left my son with memories but no pictures of his Mom. I look back now and think 'dang, I looked pretty good! What was I thinking?' You get the picture (pun intended)-there is no time more perfect than right now. When I was indecisive about something, my father used to remind me that life is no dress rehearsal. You get what you get, so make the best of it. I realize now just how right he was.
