It's just about getting to that time of year when many people start thinking about updating their family pictures and gearing up for THE one that they'll use on their annual Christmas card...are you one of them?! I sure am! It gives me so much joy to be able to bless families with photos of the ones they spend each day with, and even more joy to be able to photograph so many of our dear friends through this little business I've created the past year. Thank you friends for trusting me with your families, to capture memories of you all at this point in time where you can look back years from now and remember what made your little family unique. It truly means so much to me to be able to do this for you! Thank you!
I've come to realize that beauty in itself isn't necessarily a bad thing, because a beautiful home or flower or photograph can bring so much happiness. However, when a beautiful family is paired with a beautiful location on a gorgeous sunny summer evening, what makes the most beauty is when this scene and real-life collide and you get a peek into what truly matters-- an honest-to-goodness authentic moment where a family can sit back, enjoy this time with the ones they love the most, and let me photograph a little glimpse into their life. So yes, a "posed, everyone-look-here-at-the-camera" photo in a pretty location is always nice, but what I'd rather deliver to clients are photos where it's evident that real connections were made with your family...which is why that is my main focus in every.single. one of my sessions. Here's a peek at some of this "real-life beauty" from the Hess Family's mini session!
