5 Things I Love About Taking Photos

 From taking photos of my own family to other families, its a privilege and a passion that I will forever LOVE!!! With Valentine’s Day just on the horizon, I thought I would pair five things I love about taking photos with with recent photography work that I also love. Enjoy!

 

1. Documenting memories: The importance of photos will only grow as our lives go on. Looking back and being able to see beautiful photos of my kids at every age will forever be my favorite reason why I take photos – To forever preserve these precious moments in time.

 

 

 

 

 

2. Creating a moment: Often times I find myself caught up in the moment that comes with every photography session. Truely getting lost in the moment with my camera and my clients is what allows my best work to shine through.

 

 

 

 

 

3. Telling a story: Every photo we/I take tells a different story. Whether is be love, pain, happiness, empathy, fear, or pure joy, each photo has it’s own little story. How cool is that?!

4. Provoking emotions: Nothing brings me more joy than to watch my clients look through their photos. Looking at beautiful images of their family provokes heart-warming emotions that I will never get tired of watching.

5. Freedom & art:  Photography allows me the freedom to be my own artist.  Each day and at every photography session I am constantly working on perfecting my art. It’s something I love and feel so lucky to get to do for work.

4 Reasons Why I Love Indoor Sessions

Why I Love Indoor Sessions

It’s that time of year where my focus shifts to more indoor photo portrait sessions. I’m glad it does! Although the great outdoors makes for beautiful backdrops, there’s something special about photographing families in their homes. I am happy to share with you my top 4 reasons why I love indoor sessions.

  • Comfortable setting. Kids (and adults) tend to act more at ease and relaxed in front of a camera when they’re in their own home. This safe space makes for the most personal sessions.  I especially love it when kids share their favorite books with me or the whole family gets involved in an activity. (Playing a game, building with blocks, cooking, etc)
  • Sessions are unaffected by weather. If there’s one thing we cannot control in life, it’s the weather! Although snowy backdrops are some of my favorites, uncontrollable wind or rain can put a damper on a session. So, with indoor portraits, we eliminate this stress completely. We can spend more energy on capturing great photos.
  • Personalized backdrops. Featuring your home or favorite room in your photos can add a nice touch to any photo session. It freezes a moment in a space that you spend time in every day. Looking back on the photos, this backdrop could be the house your child grew up in or a way to remember the first home you lived in as a family.
  • A variety of backdrops all in one place. If you can’t decide on one backdrop, indoor sessions are for you! Without having to travel far, you can change up backdrops by taking portraits in your favorite room. Perhaps your newborn baby’s room, or in front of a colorful rug.
