When I agree to photograph a family, my goal is to go in and win their trust. As a friend and participant in the play date, I am able to capture true, intimate moments that wouldn’t necessarily be available during a traditional photo session.
This image melts my heart every time, and when the family looks back at it many years down the road, they will be able to see life as it really was. They will be able to say, “Life wasn’t always easy, but we loved each other through it all. Wasn’t it beautiful?”
