When I first started my family photography business, I lacked confidence. I started it on kind of a whim, like most momtogs do. I loved shooting my kids so I figured why not jump into a business. Once I started booking families and had no idea what I was doing. Ha! So, I had tendency to let them take the lead. I would let clients choose locations, shooting times, and gave no direction on clothing or expectations. I bet you can guess how I would leave these sessions, sooo unhappy. I knew that I wasn’t producing the quality images I wanted to provide my families and what they truly deserved. I knew that I needed make some changes and could do so much better.
Motherhood is at the heart of my business. When I am shooting a family session , I find myself drawn to the mother-child bond. Sometimes it will be wild and crazy, other times delicate and quiet. Nonetheless, it is what my heart longs to capture. While shooting, I look for details or moments during the session that make me feel something.
