I love my job. I love meeting new people all the time, and getting to know a little bit about their story. This blog, and my future blogs, will be about clients, family, and friends that have really inspired me as a photographer, and as a wife and mother, and how they did that. I can’t wait to share some of their amazing stories through photos, and a few words. Hope they inspire you as much as they did me!
What inspired me most about this family that I will feature today is their relationship with their very young children. We were only together for one hour, and I could tell they were such patient and wonderful parents! To me, there is nothing more exciting than to see a child happy with his mom and dad! It inspires me to take fun photographs, and also to be a more patient mother! This two year old was not as interested in the photo shoot as everyone was hoping! I have three kids, so I have been there many times myself! He loosened up with the help of my assistant and our Elmo doll, but the real trick here was the wonderful attitude of the parents. No stress, no bribes, no begging…just fun! I just loved witnessing the fun they were having once he was warmed up. He forgot he was even at a photo shoot and just couldn’t take his eyes off of Dad who was making him laugh every chance he could!
And, a little break to cuddle with mom never hurts!
This could not have been any sweeter!
My inspiration today is this family and how they showed me that being themselves and just having fun is what it’s all about. It’s why I love my job.
