This past summer I took a course on lifestyle family photography and Capturing Joy. The course was amazing! We spent an entire week focusing on parent + child connections and capturing our own self portraits. In my business I am passionate about my getting moms + dads in the photos with their own children. I always ask the parents to be prepared to be in a few photos of their kids even if it is just a children’s session. As our kids grow it is so important for them to have photos that capture moments of them with their mom + dad. I am aim for not only family pictures but a photo with each parent alone with each child.
This summer I realized I am 100% guilty of turning my camera on my husband and kids 99% of the time. I came to the realization that my own boys need these captured memories too. We started a personal project of monthly self portraits this summer. To my surprise they love it and have completely run with it. (Honestly I think both boys just love to click the remote but whatever works!) Thank you for taking a time to look over these honest + real images of my family. Oh and for all of you mamas . . .get in the frame! Book a family session or pass your camera off to someone else and make sure your kids have pictures of you with them.
