I know this better than most, but there will come a time when family photos look a little different. Maybe this is because those childhood curls have straightened out or your mom’s wrinkles have set in a little deeper. For some of us, it sometimes means that moms and their wrinkles are gone.
We’ll get the classic group shots—those milestone images to see how things have changed and grown, but beyond those classic portraits, our family sessions are filled with candid moments and genuine laughter. We want to immortalize the tiniest of connections or the mischievous glint of an eye before a tickle fight or surprise hug. We aren’t focused on perfection, but on personality, connection, and engagement. When those we love are only here in paper form, those classic shots are special, but the hand-holds, hugs, and yes—sometimes the crocodile tears—are what bring back the biggest smiles.
From someone who doesn’t have enough photos of her mom—
Every moment is worth the pause. Trust me.
