Take the time to call a college pal, bake, or write a note, or paint the hall finally but the intended is held off cause your just “waiting until you have the time”.
Urgent wins but unfortunately isn’t what you’ll wish you had done in five years.
Urgent puts off everything else for later. Important
things may wait, while urgent doesn’t.
Well the best time to get your photographs is now because they are just getting bigger and there are always other landmarks to hit. In winter, in spring, summer and in fall.
Take the time, and you’ll find that it takes less time than you thought. Schedule it in, and refuse to let anything crowd it out.
Give yourself the chance to have photos of yourself and your crew created that you love. Not photos that are ‘fine’ or escape being deleted on your phone– but that you’re thrilled to look at and share with others. It will change perspective and make you feel accomplished especially if they are printed and framed or come ready to hang!
Don’t wait. Believe me, you DON’T don’t need to wait for season to change, to lose weight, get a hair cut, be not pregnant, dress better, or wait.
Nothing needs to change – except maybe the way you feel what’s urgent. Schedule some time. Most days after 4pm or 1st thing on the weekend days. I’m in. Just email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Cause next thing is that it’s the winter again, a whole new year of urgent.
So we get the shots of everyone looking at the camera. But then I’m directing their play. I WANT the kids to interact and act up. For these too, I know the boundary is a little more aggressive, because we’re related. SO I may have encouraged a bit of a smack down. Photos remind us of who we are to each other and what our family history is. My style is about capturing the little, natural moments that document each person’s personality in the truest way possible. To me, the experience of having a fun, relaxed photo shoot (especially with kids!) is just as important as the resulting photographs. But the point is that I’m not looking for perfect. And that’s not how you will remember your life either. If we can play we can get to the REAL yummy and before you know it, the shoot is done. These two were set in under 15 minutes. Being a mom is what made me a photographer. Kids are why I love it so much. So don’t hesitate because you’re worried about ‘behaviors’ or judgement from me on you’re kids mood. There is nothing your troops can throw at me I can’t work with.
Let’s make a playdate. Delight in your family. Be photographed in a fun & charming way.
Happy to congratulate this new family of four. Because so much of the first month is spent at home, I was delighted to capture what life looks like right now for them. The weather was like today cloudy and rainy so we were indoors at their sweet cocoon of a consuming new baby. Watching the confidence of experienced parents and how the 2nd reminds you how tiny that first had been was lovely. This gal is in good hands!
What fun to see Olive’s big brother Maxwell adjusting. So adorable, he was proud to show me his trains and jump on the couch. He got read to, played with and held, but isn’t quite ready to do that with his baby sister. A kiss or two wasn’t too much to ask. How sweet to wait and see their relationship develop as she becomes more interactive and can play.
Meanwhile, at almost a month old, little Olive didn’t want to miss my visit. She would intensely study her parents and big brother then look right at my camera, so unusual for newborns at this stage. Enjoy some baby charm and take some photos that capture what happens at your nest on a rainy day.
Sending warm wishes on her 14th month birthday. Looking forward to positive results for this joyful warrior baby and her loving family. Cake was made by her crafty momma, check her site at www.morselsparties.com
Outside again – finally! With a bit of a chill in the air, the playfulness of this family warmed everything especially the playground. Twin energetic yet curious boys turning 3 and a big sister with the most gorgeously soft real smile that may just overshadow the mischief in her eyes. A detail Dad with a quiet manner and an on top of it while so patient mom that is a soft place to fall. Their tender connection to each other and quickness to laugh was so inspiring and fun! Been thinking so much lately about focus and how it really is important to capture your family in the realness. Feeling so incredible lucky to do what I do. Feast your eyes on some of the sweetest moments.
Not a newborn baby specialist, I prefer the challenge of capturing a delightful laugh of a smirking kid running and looking back to see if you’re following. However, if you add a patient tiny preemie to two spirited brothers, that’s a combination like chocolate & marshmallow. Enjoy the deliciousness.
Welcome baby Chase!
Armed with a special angel & two other brothers that are sure to be “the only people that will bug you for their own entertainment and beat up anyone else who tries.”
So happy for the parents of this crew. A house full of boys is the best.
