Picture perfect session! As a professional photographer, being in a photo- a family photo-is an odd experience. It is hard to let go of control and just be the subject instead of the artist. But it is also an important opportunity. We need to make an effort to be in the pictures. Heck, even I hire a photog when I need portraits. We are so important, and we deserve loving documentation. The father in this session, Joseph, is exactly in my boots. He is a professional photographer. Always behind the lens– but rarely in front of it. So his lovely wife Michelle decided it was time for a family session– including dad! I was recommended to them by a loyal client of mine, and off we went.
The day was a chilly one and little Dean was fresh off a nap, but he was a real a trooper. We had a golden sunset which gave everyone a glow in all of the pictures. I was happy with the entire gallery of images, but really, my favorites are the ones with just Dean and his Daddy- because I know it’s one of the few times they have been photographed together. So, here is my advice: Get in the picture. It is worth it. YOU are worth it. I know you won’t regret a single picture.
