Being the Woodlands family photographer in springtime is such a blessing! The temps are mild, the grass is green and flowers are a majestic beauty. It is the perfect time to get that summer look without melting into a puddle of sweat! Grab the kids and let’s go! Wait….kids…..young kids…my kids that like to be silly and RUN…..I don’t think my kids will go along with that. I AM HERE TO TELL YOU, IT IS OK! Their magic will be captured!
Childhood energy and chaos is the beauty we will capture. Is it a time to all wear matching turtlenecks and stand in a line like our childhoods? Absolutely not. Why do we think we need to force anything at all, right?
It’s your family story, the love and interaction that is so very beautiful. That is our goal and what we aim for. The beauty in the chaos, as my sweet friend reminds me of, too, when I get all stressed out in a run for perfection. Perfection is boring, canned and stale. Let the kids be kids. Let them run….I will chase them. Ha!
At my session with the K family, mom was well prepared and, honestly, brilliant. They had recently held a dinosaur themed birthday party for one of the boys. She knew having some fun would would be a great outlet for her two young sons. She brought DINOSAUR tails, they were dinosaurs at the end of the session. They ran, they jumped, they played and had a ball.
AND, in the midst of the wild roars…this happened. AMAZING!
See, it can be a time of letting the kids express themselves, be themselves and loving fun. Its the magic that one day will be overwhelmed with responsibilities and only moments of the carefree. Embrace the beauty in the chaos now…capture it while it’s yours.
