One thing I have learned from this quarantine (as a family photographer) is that there is always more work that can be done to work on your craft. Even if that does not include shooting. I am going back through older sessions and came across this session with my best friend Natalie of Natalie Grace Photography and her daughter Aurora. This was a trade session between her and I. Let’s just say, the session did not go exactly as we planned but that’s pretty typical when it comes to family sessions with a toddler.
Aurora went back and forth between happy and crying. But you know what, it is okay. This is what life looks like with an almost 2 year old. You do what you have to get them to cooperate even if that means any kind of snack possible (even if it is chocolate and they can smear it all over themselves lol make sure you scroll all the way through) and wave keys in front of the camera to get them to smile. In the end, the images that you capture are real life and they are memories that you will cherish for a lifetime. Make sure you scroll through and find the donut pictures… Prepare yourself lol
Being a family photographer can be challenging at times and require a lot of patience but I wouldn’t change it for the world!
A little backstory before product photography came into my life… I started really getting into photographing other people when we were in Florida in 2015.

If you are stationed in Germany, you have most likely been to Burg Lichtenberg at least a handful of times. This is one of my favorite castles to go to for family sessions. The kids love to run around and play and the adults can really take in the scenery around Burg Lichtenberg. Going to this […]
What is the first thing an engagement photographer thinks of when a client says they want to do their photos in Washington DC? Sunrise. Daily I go back and forth between whether or not I like sunrise or sunset better. I have to say though after Julie + Jordan’s engagement session, I prefer the lighting […]
I am a new photographer to the KMC area and I am so happy that Josh + Caryn chose me to capture their maternity session at Burg Lichtenberg! I just got back from visiting family and friends in Minnesota and Maryland on Friday and got to jump right back into photography yesterday with these two. […]
