You guys. I can't believe it has taken me this long to share this family sesh, as it is absolutely one of my favorites! This session 100% embodies the way I approach all of my family sessions. As you all may already know, I like to capture people, in general, in their truest state. I really enjoy working with families who open themselves up to the family portrait that is sometimes un-composed and silly. The family portrait that is far from perfect. I love working with families who listen to my silly directions and are willing to have a little fun. I am telling you, it works well when trying to create situations that allow families to truly laugh in front of my camera. No stiff smiles here!
Mike and Jess had me come to their gorgeous home right outside of Annapolis, to photograph them and their two insanely adorable kids plus there super sweet dog, Erin. Their home was the perfect setting for cozy, intimate, family moments. Everyone was at ease in a location they were comfortable with. We were all running around the yard, playing games, and having races. The kids loved it and I think were a little sad when It was over.
I have a lot of photos with my mom, my dad, my sister, etc. But none of them are even close to this. Every family deserves portraits like these. They are more than just a photograph. The experience is a memory that you will look back on with love. Families grow and evolve so quickly. It is the best gift to give families something to look back on years from now, when dynamics have changed, kids have grown up, and life moves on. Seriously. I love working with families like the Leys family. It never feels like work when we have this much fun.
For all my families looking for sessions in 2017- my pricing will be increasing beginning April 1st. If you book your family session before that date (you don't have to schedule it before April 1st, you just need to book and give a retainer fee to hold a date), you will receive my current pricing. Anything booked after April 1st, will be given new, updated pricing. As always, email me to inquire and book sessions, firstname.lastname@example.org !
