Meeting families like this reminds me again and again why I love my job as a lifestyle photographer. Story-telling has always been my passion, and when I get to document the most precious life relationships, like family, I feel so very, very lucky.
Even more, after our session, I got the most heart-warming message in my inbox: "...everyone is feeling pretty happy about this... even if the photos somehow got lost, it was a great occasion to hug and enjoy each other's company!" THIS. THIS perspective is exactly what I hope for all the families I get to photograph. During the session I want them to feel and be genuinely thankful for each other! Because when they are, joy happens! And joy naturally results in amazing pictures because it comes from within. Our afternoon ended with a mini-cake smash for A's 1st birthday! I can't think of a better way to end a session than all-you-can-eat cake, anyway!
Thank you for letting me in on your joy. I loved meeting you, and spending time getting to know you. May our paths cross again in the near future!
