I’m a children’s photographer. I love to run around, roll in the grass, tell silly jokes, and play games to get the most authentic expressions from children. I love taking pictures as children grow and mature. I love their honest little faces and curious spirits. Children’s photography is what I do best.
But from time to time, I take pictures of their parents, and that’s pretty fun too. During most sessions, I ask parents if they want a couple picture. Most haven’t had a professional picture since their wedding. They usually jump at the chance and are so pleased. I also will fit in a quick head shot picture if mom or dad need an upgraded LinkedIn or Facebook image. We all need quality pictures of ourselves.
This time was a little different, though. These parents, parents to 2 beautiful young girls, came to me alone. They wanted pictures of themselves, couple pictures similar to an engagement session. Except, unlike an engagement session, their love is deeper, stronger, more mature, and more beautiful now. After years together, they are growing closer and looking forward to the years ahead, together, with their family. And I LOVED celebrating that. I loved getting to document their love years after their wedding, years after their children, looking ahead to what is to come.
Such beauty. Enjoy!
