Kristen Lynn and I played roller derby together years ago. She retired some years back when she started her family but we have kept in touch through Facebook. A few years ago when her son Harry was only a few months old, she let me come over to try my skills at "newborn" photography. Turns out, I'm not great at posing babies and prefer lifestyle/documentary style. Kristen told me that she never got family photos because she didn't like posed portraits. I was very happy to hear that, since I am pursuing this documentary style full-blast now!
Enough backstory, fast forward to a few Saturdays ago when I went to the Lynn household and spent a few hours with this awesome family, documenting their typical Saturday afternoon. These are my favorite types of sessions because I enjoy capturing the ordinary and freezing everyday moments for parents who can enjoy their babes and look back on these photos forever, to remember this fragment of time. From this session Kristen and her husband Harry will be able to remember when Joey loved playing dress up and would change her outfit multiple times a day and loved to play jungle gym on her parents. They will remember when little Harry was still into Lego's (even though Minecraft is also pretty important to him) and he was in the stage of wanting to show you everything he did with your undivided attention. In a few months, some things may change but through these sessions, we can create art and memories together to last a lifetime.
These moments will happen without a camera there to document. I'm honored to give this gift to the Lynns to cherish for a lifetime. Hope you all enjoyed this session and be sure to drop us a line to book your in-home storytelling session today!
