Happy New Year All! It's a new year and a new start!
The family above is just the sweetest. Smiles all around. Mom was a quite uncomfortable but she made the effort. She fixed up her hair, got her makeup done and showed up ready for whatever. She is a beautiful woman but really felt out of her element. It's one thing to get the kiddos ready for a photo session but it takes courage to get in there yourself.
We all need a good portrait for social media but more importantly your kids will want photos of you. The power of photography as a memory trigger, a moment in time, a feeling, emotions. This is why I love photography so much. Portraits are filled with memories. It's magical.
So along with all the mamas (and papas and grandparents), I need to get in front of the camera. I need to print out photos so they just aren't on the computer. I need to stop saying no photos of me please. I need to be brave like the mama above.
Happy New Year!
