I have three, very independent and individual kids. It baffles me sometimes that they come from the same gene pool. It is, however, good preparation for walking into a client’s home where I know each person I am photographing will come with their own set of requirements to unlock their personality. Some will begin to twirl and entice the minute I walk through the door. Others, will take a little longer to unfold. It’s one of the many reasons I love capturing life this way. As we get to know each other we unlock a little bit of magic together.
And because life isn’t always predictable, twirls can turn to tears. Shy smiles to exuberant embrace. And both are beautiful cause that’s part of the journey, don’t you think? Life is so much more than the Christmas card photo you thought you were looking to create.
As always, I find myself a little bit in love with this adorable family. Thanks for letting me into your lives to tell your lovely love story!
