Today I had a lovely conversation with an older mom. And by older I mean in her 90’s now. She raised 4 children…. and she survived! It gives me hope, that I may actually live to see 90 even though some days it feels like I may drown in the sea of laundry, die of whining overload, or suffer from death by lego (you know that terrible moment when you step on a tiny toy… yah). So what did this awesome lady have to say to me? She said to live in the moment, enjoy the crazy chaos, and embrace every detail, because soon enough it’s over. And then these tiny people that call me mom, will be independent teenagers who don’t want my advice, and not cuddly 8 year olds who think I rock.
I’ve been toying with the idea of “Day in the life” sessions for a while, and now it’s cemented in my mind! If you have small children living at home, you NEED to do this. These are the real memories that you will want to keep forever. Any mom will tell you their kids aren’t always dressed perfectly, with clean faces and a smile. That’s the cute version of their kid, but not the real life, every day version of them. More often they are covered in dirt, and marker, and making a huge mess at the breakfast table.
For this type of session, I will come to your home for 2-3 hrs and shoot your family doing what you normally do. If your family loves to cook together, then we’ll get pictures of that. If your kids love bath, and story time, then that’s what we’ll do. If you guys are all about going to the park and flying high on the swings, then that’s what I want to capture! This is a totally customizable session, fit for your family exactly. You and I will spend time discussing what your family is all about, and create an amazing experience that is uniquely you. Don’t wait until your house is perfect, or you lose just a little more baby weight. Because our kids really don’t care about that! And neither will you when you’re kids are grown and your house is empty, quiet and in perfect order 😉
Because I’m so excited about this I’m offering day in the life sessions for $50 off the normal price in the month of June! I am only available to shoot this type of sessions on Saturdays, so book yours fast! Those Saturday dates fill up very quickly.
