Documenting a Saturday morning at home :: Real Life Family Photo Session

Introducing a new type of photo session offered by yours truly.

The Real Life Family Session.

Picture this: You’re at home with your loved ones on a lazy Saturday morning, with nothing else to do but do what you love to do.

With the ones you love most in this world.

and I’m there to document all of the seemingly ordinariness of it all.

Pajamas.  Pancakes.  Story time.  Game playing.  Snuggles.  Pigtails.  Giggles.

Knowing that greenberries is a safe place where families can wonder around and imagine what they are in for as they enter this journey, makes our staff beam with joy. View full post »
