Art of Photographing Children

Amaples Photo

Half-way through, she told me how she’d thought about canceling.. or pushing back her family photo session.

‘It never feels like the ‘right’ time? Ya know?’

You want to feel ‘less-frumpy’ and less like the ‘work-from-home-I’ve-gained-a-few-pounds-since-quarantine– look.

Trust me, I understand!

My first session back since quarantine, provided every reminder of why I tell stories.

Children grow quickly, we blink and babies become toddlers. They never stop growing and evolving. Those first 18 years are already half done for me.

It’s important to remember despite the current world climate, it’s important to focus on what makes YOU happy. Stay positive and make small steps in the direction of happiness every day.

When you don’t know the future, simply continue doing the NEXT right thing.

Whitney found me last year when searching for a photographer to help celebrate her daughter’s first birthday.

I was smitten. From our first phone call when we discovered we were both from red-heads who moved to KC from the South. This instant connection still excites me after all these years photographing families!

So what will you miss tomorrow, after it’s past?

I miss my daughter’s toothless grin.

But I fell in love her new smile, the one full of baby teeth. When those began falling out, we celebrated singing, ‘All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth!’

It became part of our memories, celebrating milesstones together.

As I look back through these memories, I realize I have few images of my daughter and I together. While I know I was there in all of them, I long to see us together- even if I felt ‘frumpy-and-gross’ at the time.

As a mother and woman whom often judges her own reflection with criticism, trust me when I say this:

I DO NOT SEE YOU THIS WAY!

(Plus, it’s about the kiddo anyway.)

I promise that together, we can create something magical and celebrate the beautiful people and moments in your life.

Let’s celebrate the HAPPY now!

Stuck in our homes with our children, day-in and day-out is exhausting. Believe it or not, a photo shoot outside is a perfect way to spend the afternoon!

The photograph below was inspiration in the moment. With a little trust from Whitney and a few items from my collection, we wrangled the baby into the frame below.

We can do the same with a few simple items from your closet just ask me how and we can brainstorm together!
