Yes, you have taken a thousand pictures on your phone of all the details, cute faces and fun things you do through your day, but who is taking pictures of you? Who is capturing you snuggling up on your baby and making them laugh? Who is taking photos of you playing and swinging your kids around until you are so exhausted you just can’t do it anymore? Who is photographing the wonderment and surprise on your face when exploring a new place with your family?
That would be the job of the photographer you hire. When hiring a professional photographer in the Philadelphia area, you can become over whelmed with the styling, the options, the locations, the prices, the packages, the time restraints, the… list. goes. on. One of the most important pieces to feeling good about the investment of your time, money and energy is to find someone that will capture you the way you want to feel and remember this time. What are you actually looking for from your photography session- do you want to capture the details and story of this time? Do you want curated, beautiful portraits looking at the camera? Do you want intimate pictures for just you or something to adorn your walls at home?
My voice as a photographer has always leaned more towards natural, connection and slices of your life. Little details like hair curls, or scrunchy noses or toes that will change and grow into something new so soon. I want your session to be enjoyable and carefree. I want you to love way you felt being photographed, but also love the feeling captured in your photos.
Young toddlers and children outdoors can be so fun. There are so many ways to engage with each other and with your environment that can add element of exploration and newness to your gallery. Nature lends so much to see and do. The sun gives us light to play with and elevated your photos. Keeping your toddlers engaged in a natural way will give us the best results from our time together.
This means we sing and listen to music if your child typically enjoys this. We play airplane, hang kids upside-down and thrown them in the air if they are more adventure seeking and physically playful. We walk around quietly and carefully if they are more observant. Child-led means that we try to with the flow of what is happening around us in hopes of capturing more true-to-you moments for your family.
