My Top 5 Reasons Why I Love Photographing Families

  1. Families are more interactive! I really like to photograph families enjoying each other-hugs, swings, twirls, chases (siblings love to chase each other), funny faces, hanging kids outside down, all of it! It brings laughter and joy to me to watch a family having fun together. *Some families have had me laughing so hard that I could barely photograph them from laughing so hard.
  2. Kids change so fast!! Kids are growing and learning so quickly that each new photo session you can see the change. It is amazing to compare pictures from every different season.
  3. I am capturing a legacy. Families are establishing a legacy-a legacy of love, joy, laughter, smiles. A legacy that can be seen, a legacy that can be documented and passed down for generations. It truly is a legacy of love, every session.
  4. I often get to see families throughout different seasons or different years. And it is always a honor to photograph families multiple times. We become friends and every session I get to talk and catch up with you. It is like seeing an old friend every session.
  5. Because I have a family. I know how much joy it brings me to see sweet pictures of my own family. The smiling faces, the twirls, the hugs, it’s all the love of our family in a picture. I truly want that for everyone! I want you to have joyful pictures of your family.


It isn’t a perfectly posed picture, but I love it. The kids naturally posed like that. Their family obviously had done this pose at home.

And it was just such a sweet true moment of family life.
