Since the beginning of my photography career, I banked on posed images. My stomach would turn at the thought of family portraits and having to pose a large group of people well enough that I wouldn’t have to spend time using Face Swap. I’m not sure when it happened, but at some point I quit caring so much about perfection and instead began seeing the value in images that are unposed and unmeditated. I began seeing the treasure in real laughter, raw moments, and unparalleled affection.
I discovered in myself a love of adventure during, yes during, family sessions. Letting the children play. Joining them at the riverside. Walking hand in hand. And what better place to start than with my sister and her sweet kiddos?
And then the light got all sorts of dreamy and it looked like a fairytale!!
