Three Things I Wish All Moms Knew Before Their Family Session

Being a mom myself, I remember the early days when I stressed over milestone photos and family portraits with perfectly matching clothes!  Please believe me when I say that the stress I put on myself was not worth it!  Here are the three things I wish all moms knew before their family session.

Your Session Means As Much to Me as to You!
I know how much I treasure my family photos, and I want you to treasure your photos as much as I treasure mine!  Believe me when I say that I am honored to work with you and your family.  You are not just another photo shoot in my calendar!  I am truly blessed for every photo that I am able to shoot.  I hope you are as thrilled as I am about your photos!  I can't wait for you to share them with all of your family and friends!

Kids Will Be Kids
My favorite photos are the candid moments that just can't be recreated!  I often see adults nervous about having their pictures taken while kids are beyond excited.  Sometimes a little too excited that they may forget their manners.  I get it.  I'm a mom too!  Been there, done that.  Please give your little ones a little bit of freedom during your photo session.  I promise to capture their wild and crazy expressions that you will laugh about for years to come.

Emotions Are The Most Important Thing You'll Be Wearing
I know you love how a certain pair of pants makes your legs look fabulous, but to be blunt: the most important thing you wear at a photo shoot are your emotions!  Your smile.  Your eyes.  Your smile.  These are the things that are noticed first in every photo.  So, please don't fret over what outfit everyone is going to wear!  Just relax and have fun.

Three Things I'm Loving Right Now: Summer 2019 Edition

I have a guilty confession to are my top three things I'm loving right now! BH 90210 - The Beverly Hills 90210 reboot series has only aired a few episodes and I'm so thrilled with how they did it!  It's not a typical reboot that picks up almost 30 years after the original series ended.  The original cast play themselves in a distorted reality-based way.  If you were a fan of the original, it's worth checking out this reboot!  "The Art of Racing in the Rain" (Movie Edition) - OK - I'm a "This is Us" fan (Milo 😍).  And, I love dogs (especially golden retrievers)....and well, I love Kevin Costner and Ferraris too!  But, I finally had a chance to watch this in the theater and let's just say I'm so very glad there were only a few other people in the theater as I silently sobbed from the first 30 seconds to the very last 30 seconds.  I have not read the book.  So, I don't know how they compare, but this movie was so beauti
