It doesn't take much poking around on Facebook groups before you find photographers clamoring to get you to notice them. When some unsuspecting soul asks for a recommendation for a spring-mini, the photographers swoop in like seagulls to a french fry. They yell and scream and wave their hands and beg to be noticed.
And I'm no different.
I want you to notice me. And more than that, if I'm being 100% honest, I want you to hire me.
But the truth also is, my style isn't for everyone.There's plenty of people who don't want what I bring to the table. I don't use props or Photoshop. I do very minimal posing. There's no cute/ clever/ creative concept.
What I offer instead is the promise to capture your family in all its wildly imperfect glory. To find your beautiful truth. To capture your now as it really is: full of love, chaos, dirty knees, messy hair, and joy.
It feels great when my style resonates with the people who hire me- when we're on the same page and want the same thing. And Sarah, with her family of red-headed women, she gets it. I will always be thankful for the first person to ever book be for money (Rita), the first person I didn't know to book me for money (Mylene), the first person to hire me for their wedding (Kerry). And I will be thankful to Sarah because she was the first person to book me for a second time. Return customers validate you. They make you feel like you're doing something right. So thank you, Sarah, for giving me that.
More of Sarah and her family come. We've got a third session coming up..this one with newly toddling babe-o.
