Every session begins with just this - a vision. Whether it be as natural and effortless as photos in a field of whimsical tall grass with dreamy sunlight over your shoulder, or something as refined and prepared as blankets, suitcases, and dainty decor surrounded by mother nature at her best, you better believe I want to hear about it. I want to capture that beautiful, unique idea you've had locked away in your mind for your engagement pictures. I can't resist taking photos of your 2-year-old daughter in that absolutely adorable flower crown! And I definitely won't say no to spending an hour under dreamy, warm sunlight. Your ideas are what will make your photos different from the others, even if you did get the inspiration from Pinterest (I totally understand). Just remember this - no photo shoot ever turned out badly because someone brought too much vision to the session.
Dream big. Please. You wouldn't be getting photos professionally taken if you didn't want them to be amazing. And a cell phone photo shoot just wouldn't be enough for the great ideas that are fluttering through your mind, so why settle for less than those great ideas? To some, saying you dream of having breathtaking photos taken of your precious baby bump, or of your 1-year-old bundle of joy before they get any bigger might sound a bit melodramatic or unnecessary, but those times in your life are important and should never be forgotten. Dreaming of having unforgettable memories to keep forever sounds completely realistic to me. So, keep your dreams big - I would love to capture them on camera.
