For the past two years, I’ve met this dear family at their charming Chestertown home to take their annual pictures. We don’t plan out a list of shots to be taken ahead of time. Nor do we agonize over wardrobe or the prettiest backdrops for photos. They play outside (like they do most days) while I hang out and photograph them in action, just being themselves.
Yes, this way is easiest and the least stressful. No need to load the kids in the car or worry about forgetting something at home. It’s not necessary to purchase a new, coordinating wardrobe just for pictures and, of course, all pets are already conveniently home to easily be included in the photographs too.
While having me come to their home makes things much easier and smoother for them, there’s an even more important reason for it. It’s understood I’m there to freeze this moment in time for their family. This is what this sweet mom had to say after receiving her album and prints from this past session:
“[Jen] does an amazing job of capturing all the small, special moments that you cherish in your heart, but never get pictures of. She is professional, kind, patient, and flexible - all necessary qualities when you’re dealing with three kids under the age of 10 and various animals. We have purchased the collage print as well as the photo book and could not be happier with the finished product. Both are show pieces that we enjoy sharing as a family and will be a special memento to pass down to our children when my husband and I are gone.”
It makes me so happy to know they have these seemingly ordinary moments recorded, the details of which will never to be forgotten. Click here to find out more about having me do the same for your family.
