“What should I bring to our session?” is one of the most common questions I get asked & the real answer is…an open mind, a smile & trust. Giving me free reign during a session is like letting my creative Free Spirit SOAR!!! I love when someone e-mails me & says…we trust you because we know you are going to give us a beautiful outcome no matter what. Thank you! That means the world to me. I don’t want you to show up stressed out, crabby & short-tempered with your kids. Leave it to me to produce the authentic smiles, the real emotion, the connection you should have as a family. We will play games, ask questions, explore, etc. So show up with a good attitude, a smile, and trust me to do my job because I love it & that’s what I get paid to do. I promise you won’t be disappointed!
Why am I talking about that before posting about this particular session? Because I remember the rapport I had almost immediately with this new, young family. They were worried about their little doll-face not smiling & having boogery-boogers because she had just woke up from a nap & was recovering from a cold still lingering. As moms, we’ve all been there. I totally understand, but I also have worked with kids for 10 years now, not to mention my own & TONS of nieces/nephews…I know it takes time to warm up, wake up & even if you don’t get THE PERECT SMILE…I promise, you will still LOVE your pictures! You know why? Because you will always look back & remember that your little doll-face was recovering from a cold & gave us funny & adorable expressions. You will remember how little she was, you’ll ooh & aah over her curls & round, pink cheeks. You’ll remember what a lovely Spring Day it was & nothing else will matter.
I absolutely ADORED this family & I really, really, really hope they come back & see me this Spring because I would die to squeeze this munckin’’s face again. Take a peek at our session together…it’ll forever be a Spring Favorite. =)
