This sweet at-home family session has had me smiling for weeks. Elisabeth had been preparing for my arrival, and promptly pulled out her box of jewelry, and then led me to her room to show me her basket of little treasures.
I told Jessica, I just wanted to capture their ordinary life – I wanted the kids in what they wear every day, the home just as it is, and I wanted absolutely no pressure to preform or make a perfect picture. This is the attitude I take into all of my sessions, because I am convinced these are the types of pictures everyone will enjoy for years to come – and that no one will look back on with negative memories of having to wear itchy clothes, or put on a forced smile. This is life, and it’s worth celebrating, in all it’s ordinary magic.
