I love getting out and meeting new clients. I especially love learning new jokes from new kids and seeing their smiles as we dance our way through a photo session But, when it comes to my own kids, sometimes they are not so happy in front of the camera. So, when my own daughter said she definitely wanted her own Lemonade Stand Mini Session, I silently cheered! 🙂
I told her to find a summer dress and she could be my next client.
She styled herself perfectly. 🙂 Bare feet, a bright, comfortable summer dress, that even had a glass of lemonade on the beautiful detail. She started mixing and pouring right away and was happy to wander with a basket full of lemons.
Side note: Dresses by Youngland, Bonnie Jean, and GoodLad are some of my favorites for photo sessions. They are sweet and classic.
When I thought we were done, she asked for more pictures. I think that she was enjoying some time just with me. We talked and chatted and she sold me lemonade.
You might think that you should get family photos taken to preserve these memories, to commemorate a special occasion, or to have something to leave your children. But, these are only secondary to the real reason you should book a photo session: These moments – unplugged, in nature, enjoying each other’s company – are the essence of life. You aren’t just taking pictures, you’re making memories together. It’s a chance to fully engage, un-distracted from the rest of your responsibilities, and take a moment with your kids. Your photographer just happens to be there too.
Here’s the result of some uninterrupted time together: Beautiful images and some great memories.
