‘we haven’t had family photos taken in years’
this mom confided in me as we talked about planning a family photo session. “We’re a little camera shy.”
But, she said, her husband had been wanting family photos for a long time. And her oldest son was about to leave for a gap-year internship out of state. And the kids were pre-teens the last time they’d had a picture made together. We talked about the kind of session that could put the entire family at ease – something that would let them interact and enjoy the time together, something that would make the process more about their connection and less about posing for a photo.
Ice cream from Jubilee, the boardwalk at Yards Park, sunset and other humans hanging around, things to look at. A context in which they could feel at ease.
We had a blast.
I can’t wait to show them their full set of photos – this is just a little sneak peek until we meet!
