I’ve been working on a new type of photo session for a while now and it’s inspired by my Children’s Lifestyle and Food Blog, Make & Taste. On a weekly basis I post a recipe and/or food road trip that my kitchen helper and I make or venture out to. It’s all about baking and cooking WITH your child (or grandchild, niece, nephew, cousin etc). The act of sharing your passion, spending time together, creating something delicious and building on their fine motor development is what it’s all about. So many other benefits happen in-between all the fun, like learning about different ingredients and not being afraid to try something new.
I have photographed many families in their kitchens over the past few years and love how the documentary, food and family photography all come together to tell their kitchen story. Passing down family food traditions or creating new ones is so impactful to our next generation and I’m capturing it all. What a gift to look back on and remember those times. I know I would love a set of professional images of my mom and I baking in the kitchen, but unfortunately my own memory will have to suffice as she left this world too early. Every time I bake or cook with my kitchen helper I am continuing our family traditions and enjoy creating new ones along the way.

As a photographer I am constantly finding locations for a perfect photoshoot session. I catalog them in my head, make note of different set ups and plan to visit again as soon as a client comes along that will make the location come to life. A close friend of mine was visiting from out of state with her two blue-eyed children in tow and I knew it was a perfect time to revisit a local farm that has the most amazing birch trees and weathered barn. In all seriousness I have been waiting for years to photograph these birch trees and my friend’s cutest little 18 month old girl was the ideal person to make this on-location photoshoot a true success.

Family photography is evolving to more than just the traditional portrait. It’s always nice to have a perfect portrait to look back on and reflect on a specific time and place, but what if you had high quality photos of how your family lived their daily lives. All the silliness, crying, climbing, jumping, spinning and running that makes up your everyday, sometimes chaotic life. Yes, it’s not always glamorous and many times it’s ridiculous, but that is real life. We all have camera phones and try to capture those fleeting moments but with low light or fast moving subjects the pictures never become worthy of a second or third look. I know I have had moments when I thought, “now this is a photo” and I was holding my child on one hip, carrying multiple bags and then trying to open the door to the house. Ridiculous, but if I had that image now, I would love to see how I was “living” during that stage of my life. Maybe ten years from now I would reflect back to that old house or my son wearing his favorite shoes or hat, so many memories captured in one image.
This new session offering is called “A Slice Of Life” and will be a 1 hour session and cost $325. Included in this cost is 5 digital images of your choice, photography time, editing and a private album to view, order and share. This is a spin off of a session many photographers offer called “Day In The Life”, which requires 4-6 hours of your time and over $1,000.00. I believe that so many families would cherish these photos that can be attainable during a “A Slice Of Life” session. So who’s ready to capture all the “fun” that makes your family unique? Have questions? I would love to hear from you. Email me at: email@example.com

This family mini session was full of fun, dropping temperatures and a lot of wind, but you wouldn’t know it from the photos we were able to capture in just a 25 minute mini session. The chosen location was full of unique backdrops which made for great photo set ups. This fall to winter shoot was a perfect way to kick off the holiday photo season. I had scouted the location prior to the photo session so I had a general plan of where we were going to start and with the 25 minutes timeline the location had all these different areas to discover only a few feet away from each other. Did I mention the wind? The wind coming off the Connecticut river was pretty intense but luckily the sun peeked out at the end of the session to warm things up and end on a fun and smiling photo session.

It takes a village, right? Well that is certainly true with a family photography session. The Auger family was full of fun and I loved their willingness to help make silly faces and gestures behind the scenes to create great smiles and laughs from the youngest family members. There is so much more to a photo session than that one perfect group shot, I love to capture the in-between genuine moments that highlight the entire photo session experience. My style for this 1 hour family photo session was a mixture of both portrait and lifestyle photography and by the time the session was wrapping up I felt like an honorary member of the family.
