I was SUPER honored when Simone of ST Photography sent me an inquiry about doing their family portraits…. but when you’re a photographer and another photographer wants you to do their photos, there’s a healthy dose of anxiety that goes along with that (at least for me, ha). Honestly, the session couldn’t have gone any better! I always feel a little silly for stressing so much, but I feel such an obligation to “get it right” for everyone, and that gets amped up when it’s another photographer! But we had a great time!
As photographers, I think Simone and I have a unique viewpoint when it comes to being in the frame with our kids. That’s because, most of the time (unless we want to hassle with remotes and tripods and self-timers), we don’t have the option. We are always behind the camera. And for me, that’s okay. I have a whole litany of body issues that could keep me from stepping in front of the lens. But then I remind myself – those body issues are not what my children will remember. They don’t see any of our flaws. I can’t stress it enough – get in the frame with your kids!
I believe the word I’m searching for here is “Ermagerddddd” because I’m pretty sure this is PERFECT. Every single image that came out of this session was gorgeous and I had such a hard time narrowing it down for their collection. And again just now trying to decide which images to blog!
