You pay a professional a higher premium for a reason. That reason being, you can relax and not stress because you know and have faith that they have done this enough that you are going to get great results. A professional is no longer practicing on you. Professional family photographers are also seasoned in interacting with people and developing human relationship skills to create an enjoyable environment to create beautiful results.
Being one of many family photographers, my specialty in photographing families is telling your story, however and whatever story that may be. This family had a phenomenally fun story to tell and it was a pleasure to tell it, capture it and experience it with this family. This cute couple….(down below) were a few weeks pregnant…..and they wanted to document their families reaction to them breaking the news. UM! Fun! The mothers had planned the family photo shoot and Alyssa reached out to me and asked if we could do a surprise during the shoot. That was a no brainer. I love stuff like this. I have done this one other time when a mom and dad broke the news to their two kids they were going to have a baby. Getting the real joy, expressions, moments that matter most in life is where my happiness lies in this job.
Their son is a rockstar behind the camera. I always love talking and collaborating with other creatives. You can check him out on his site.
Here is the photo RIGHT after they announced their impending arrival. The shock is awesome. They had only been married a very short amount of time and so it was really unexpected. No one knew what to think and thought it was a joke. Dad, I don’t think he heard. Haha. He was unfazed.
I loved this session. I loved this family. I loved their love. I loved their friendship. I loved their teasing. I loved their energy. It was a great day to be part of with this family. Thank you for the invite to participate in such a memorable day in your life!
