Shortly after taking Camryn’s newborn photos, Aly said we needed to plan our next Panama City Beach trip when Camryn is 6 months old so she could take her 6-month photos. Done! But, I told her that I wanted to take some lifestyle family photos of her family while we were down there.
When we started prepping for Aly’s lifestyle session, I said, “I want y’all to be as natural as possible; you know, chaotic.” I would never say this to someone other than a close friend or relative, but the truth is, family life is chaotic. Weston and I know now first-hand that parenthood is pure pandemonium sometimes and we only have one child. I imagine that chaos is multiplied with each additional child.
Aly and Pitt have three beautiful, sweet, and lively boys. With a mom as a photographer, you know they have a TON of photos taken. Their oldest son, Philip, said he didn’t want to take pictures that day; however, we assured him it would be fun. “There will be tickle fights!” we said in our best sing-song voices. That was enough to get them excited. At least for a few minutes! 😉
I know many moms want “just one photo with everyone looking at the camera” and I think those are highly valuable. That’s what I strive for during every session. I also believe that candid shots with your kids just being kids are ones that you will treasure forever. I am thrilled to announce that I will be offering snuggle sessions from now on that are heavily focused on candid moments (plus a couple with everyone looking at the camera)!
Snuggle sessions take place in your home with lots of natural light. These sessions are 45 fun-filled minutes of snuggles and playtime to capture natural and candid moments of your family. If you’re thinking, “I don’t have a lot of natural light in my house,” or “My house isn’t photo-worthy,” or even if you just don’t want to take them in your home, I have the perfect indoor space for you! Email me for more information. Mention this blog post and I will give you $25 off your snuggle session if your deposit is received by March 1!
Aly and Pitt, thank you for listening to my crazy ideas and letting me take these fun photos of your family! We enjoyed spending the weekend with y’all and we look forward to our next trip!
