Planning to coordinate your family for a photo session can be stressful. I’ve been there. I’ve done that. No matter how many times you’ve been through it, somehow it never gets easier. Going into a session I do everything in my power to make families relax and realize that for once, they get to be themselves with those they love more than anything on this Earth. Sometimes that involves me talking incessantly. Sometimes it involves joking about tripping over my own two feet (or more likely my camera bag). Sometimes it involves horses..beautiful, majestic horses. And sometimes, just sometimes, it involves sitting on a blanket, cozying up with your family and forgetting I’m even there. Because that’s when I get to see you. The real, beautiful, incredibly happy you. It’s when I get to see how your children adore each other. How your children adore you. How they feel safe in your arms. And how they feel close to you.
So while the day leading up to your session can be stressful, just remember, the clothes aren’t going to make your photos perfect. It’s how you show how much you love one another that will.
