A Strong, United Pair

September 18, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

When Jessica contacted me about doing this family portrait session, she told me that she was going through a divorce, and wanted a way to document a new beginning for she and her daughter, Kaila.  She wanted the photos to show a strong, united pair.  

I think that documenting new beginnings is a perfect reason to schedule a portrait session.  I thought Jessica's words in her survey to me were beautiful. 

She said " I want to show Kaila that we are still a family even though we're divided now and that we will be stronger and better from everything.  I want her to see how much love there is for her and how much fun we can have together."

I love it when clients really put their thoughts and feelings in my client survey. It really helps me to have an emotional connection with them, and to understand truly what the photos mean to them. I can't even explain why this matters.  The closest I've come to verbalizing why it matters to me is the quote by David Alan Harvey that says "Don't shoot what it looks like. Shoot what it feels like." 

Maybe it's all in my imagination, but I somehow think I do a better job with the photos when I feel that connection to the clients story.

I know it felt super easy to capture a strong, united pair when I was photographing Jessica and Kaila.  Photographing mothers with their babies (no matter how old!) is always one of my favorite things and I just loved watching these two interact with each other.  It's so obvious just by the look in Jessica's eyes that there is so, so much love for this beautiful little girl.
