Your Excuse Isn't Good Enough

Are you struggling with finding the time for family pictures?
I know it can be difficult fitting into everyone’s schedule.
Here are a few tips to help you move past that:
1. Schedule the appointment a month in advance to prepare your family.
2. Plan your outfits two weeks prior to the session. I provide all of my family sessions with an outfit guide for free to help you out with this.
3. Let your kids be a little crazier than usual during the session. This allows for genuine smiles.

Are you done with the excuses? Good, I’m glad to hear it. Take action now and let's get a date set. Click below to start the process.

It doesn’t take much for time to slip away from us. Before we know it, the day is over and tomorrow starts a new one.
And what does tomorrow bring? Busy-ness, to-do lists, work, school, baseball practice, piano lessons. The list goes on right?
Can we all just take a second. A second to breath and appreciate the things around us.
Cuddling on the couch with your kids, talking about random highlights of your day with your husband, sitting still on the porch and listening to silence.
Taking the time to sit in the presence of your family can feed your soul.
Taking the time to be photographed with your family in your home, cuddling on the couch, preparing dinner, baking cookies, playing with dolls, stuffed animals or cars...ya know, the normal everyday stuff.
Can I photograph that for you? The chaos, the calm, the tears, the smiles, the hugs, and all the stuff you would do when you are in down time with your family.
Those are the memories I know I want to cherish as a mom. Those are the things I’m going to think about when my boys, who are 7 and 11, go to high school one day.
Before we know it, time will slip away.
