Before I photograph your family there a few things I think you should know. Consider this my *DISCLAIMER* :)
1.) I'm going to become your friend. For the hour or two that we are together, look at me as a friend. I'll laugh with you, play with your kids, joke around and run around like crazy capturing every little moment that's unfolding.
2.) I'm going to ask you to please disregard the fact that I am taking your picture. I don't want you to look at me and smile, unless asked, I want you to look at your family. I want you to focus on them. I want you to cuddle them, tickle them, dance with them, throw them around, walk, run, laugh and play. I want REAL. I want to capture YOUR memories. YOUR unique story. YOUR family dynamics. That's what I want.
3.) If you're not comfortable with the above mentioned, I'm most likely not the photographer for you. Anyone can request you to look at the camera and say "cheese"... some can do it a little better than others, yes, but that's not me. That's not my art. That's not my vision. My passion is moments that MOVE the viewer. I mean, emotionally. I look for emotive, genuine and true moments that are uniquely yours. If I can have that from you, I can promise you that your session will be like this one right here....
And with that, I give you this beautiful family. Who did exactly what I mentioned above. They let me be friends, they gave me artistic freedom. They let me "do my thing". And I find when I do what I love most, I love my work the most. I hope you see that, too <3
