Could the orchards in Londonderry have been more amazing this year?! I think not. I kicked off a busy and absolutely stunning weekend of portrait sessions with this awesome family.
Sometimes you just know you are going to have a perfect session. Other times, the mom calls 20 minutes after you leave the house asking if you can bring a necklace for her to wear... and then says that her almost 3 year old refuses to wear pants... and THEN notices that it's a bit too chilly outside for what the baby is wearing. Mom thinks that the session is doomed.
But here's a little secret.
It never is.
I want to photograph your family the way you are. So if that means that your 3 year old is crazy and jumping up and down. That's okay. We are going to get awesome photos. The baby is hungry and tired? No problem. Let's feed her and get some other shots at the same time. Dad isn't a huge fan of the camera? Please. Don't look at me... look at your family and babies!
Our sessions are always meant to be fun and show you as a family. Not stiff and posed (although I know that everyone wants a shot of everyone looking at the camera, for sure!), but let's capture memories that are reality. Pictures that you want to hang on your wall. Photographs that you will pass down to your kids, grandkids and great-grand kids. What life was really like.
