Photos are a celebration, not something to stress over.

But it’s only natural to have these worries creep up:

  • Is my house too dark/too small for photos?
  • Are you gonna take pictures of all my clutter?
  • What are we going to DO during the session?
  • What the heck do we wear?
  • Will my family even cooperate for this?
  • Is Daisy going to get any good shots at all?

From personal experience, I know it’s totally weird getting in front of the camera, and I also know hearing “don’t worry!” doesn’t exactly help. Up until last year, the only time Lee and I had photos taken was our wedding. But after working with a photographer for some casual photos of us (without the pressure of a wedding!) we were surprised how fast we warmed up in front of a total stranger. And trust me, our awkwardness can be a lot to handle! It all comes down to finding the right match in a photographer. She was able to help our personalities + our love shine, which was such a boost in confidence and it really does shine through in our photos [insert sappy tears here lol].

OKAY… enough about me! Let’s talk about you…

Here is how YOU can have a session nobody whines about:

  • Get your house everyday tidy, not Better Homes and Gardens tidy.
  • Trust that I’ve been in dozens of homes of ALL shapes & sizes. There has never been a single one I couldn’t make beautiful photos in.
  • Answer your questionnaire and I will figure out what we’ll do during your session
  • Pick outfits based on comfort, not the latest fashion trends. And, let your kids have a say! They will thank you for it later.
  • Let me worry about getting honest + real photos. I promise there is nothing your spouse or kids can throw at me, that will throw me off. 

We did all of our favorite things together while Daisy snapped away; we hung out by the fireplace, had a dance party, and read a chapter book as we snuggled in bed.

My husband actually enjoyed himself, and the kids didn’t want Daisy to leave!
