A family of 5! Gilbert, Arizona
I am so grateful to have met this family! They were so much fun to photograph and just be around for an early morning session. I enjoy it so much when a family can just be real around me and not pretend like they don't face the same challenges I face as a parent. That moment of being real to me allows me to enter a more intimate space with the family and get in close and ask questions that I normally couldn't ask. Opening up to me during a session and revealing what your days are really like is what will produce great photos. During this shoot we had it all and I wouldn't have had it any other way. Spilled coffee (cold) into a carseat w/ baby, full diapers, sweaty toddlers, splashing in puddles and the 90+ temps at 7am. It was one of my favorite sessions in a long time. I hope more people will be real with me in the future.
