Baby Evie & Capturing the Uniqueness of Each Family
Every client is unique, and it's important to me to capture that uniqueness in my portrait sessions.
If you've ever booked a session with me, and you're the type of person who actually does read a contract before you signed it, you may have noticed this paragraph in my client agreement:
Each session is as different and unique as the beautiful families being photographed and I do not aim to copy or recreate Pinterest images. Before booking a session with me, I want to make sure that you are familiar with my style, and that my style is what you are wanting for your images.
This statement isn't just arbitrarily in my contract. It's there because I want you to understand that our goal with a session is not to recreate some scene that you saw on Pinterest, or even to copy a photo you saw on my website that I took. Our goal is to create images that are as unique and beautiful as your family.
Finding what makes families special and unique is especially fun when I get to photograph clients in their home. Details like a baby's nursery, knick-knacks or books displayed throughout the house, cherished toys, and a family's pets are all items that can be photographed that tell part of a family's story. I look for those types of things as I am photographing. For example, both of Evie's parents are Chemistry professors at Vanderbilt. So when I saw a set of Science Board Books sitting on the nursery table, I knew I wanted to include one in the photos. Mom and Dad said "Quantum Physics for Babies" was their family favorite, so I asked them to read to baby Evie for a few shots.
Other things I made sure to include in photos were the cat and dog (who Lauren had said were a huge part of the family), a blanket made by Grandma, & the stuffed Bunny Evie got for her first Easter.
And I'm convinced that in 20 years when families look back on these photos, they will be glad to have those details captured instead of someone else's idea of a pretty Pinterest scene. 😍
