I know what it's like. You've just scheduled your photo session and you are worried. You may have spent hours pulling together outfits that coordinate with your home and your style. You want to look your best, I get it! You might be worried that your kids and husband will be miserable. You're hoping that it won't take too long and you'll get through it without any meltdowns or grumbling. I get that too! Mostly, you might be worried that you've just invested your time and your money into this session and it will be a total disaster. Hear me now...
Don't be worried, relax... I'm not after your perfection, anyway. I want your truth!
I want the real you.
Trust me... the most beautiful moments are not the perfectly posed, every one looking at the camera pictures. Sure, we will get that too. Truly though, the moments that you will want to remember are the cuddles, the closeness, the just being together enjoying each other. I will give you that because it's what speaks to me most. I want you to have fun. I want you to be silly. I want your kids to be kids. I want dad to just play. I want you to just be who you are!
The kids and I will become great friends. I will ask them about the things that matter to them... what sports they like to play, if they like to dance or draw. Soon they will be telling me all about themselves. I will get to know them, because I want to really "see" them for who they are. We will laugh, play games and joke around a lot!!!
After the session, your kids might even ask you to invite me over again some time. Your husband might even say, "that was actually a lot of fun."
My job is not to make you look beautiful, it is to show you how beautiful you already are! So don't be afraid to show me your truth. I promise you... it's beautiful.
