Nope, Nadda, No…. Totally untrue!!!
Mumma’s, I know how much you do with your kiddos!! Seriously…. I know!! the beauty of my job is I get to show you. I will hang out with your family during meal times, during butterfly expeditions, Wiggles sing and dance time, bubble time, climbing the furniture stack, tying up shoelaces, picking out the outfit for the day.
I will show you the Connections I see, simple little looks shared between teens, capturing the moment you leave the room and place a hand on the nearest Childs head, arms wrapped around necks giving tight squeezes and kisses on the nose.
I get to document Moments in Time – perhaps this is the last months your toddler demands hot choccy with dad in the morning or the your baby nurses. Maybe you are about to leave this home you bought your babies back to for the first time. Or maybe your treasured fur baby is getting older and may not be around for much longer. It’s incredible the things that can change in a year. Are you mindful of some of changes sneaking in to your family’s routine that you want to remember forever?
Making pictures in Your Safe Place where kids (and parents) can relax and let the day unfold. The last few years have shown us how much comfort we find in our homes. The breathe we take when we get there and the feeling of safety we have with everyone doing their thing. This is the place where we are the most comfortable, where we can be who we are authentically. Our homes are an extension of who we are, not only all the comfy details like a cuddle puddle lounge, but where we all can be most at ease.
I get to be witness and wonder at the amazing Quirks that exist in your Family. Kids make me laugh every day. They can be so weird! The energy they have to climb out and show me how they can jump in the pool, the way they like readying books upside down on the couch, the teaching of children how to talk smack when playing monopoly, the finding of a quiet place with a hand held up so we (they) cant see our face while pooping in the nappy… man – kids (and parents) have quirky personalities and documentary family photography allows me to see it and document for you. I have a load more reasons why your documentary family photography session will not be boring, but you will need to read that in my blog.
