Today I came across a moving blog post from a friend, Deb Schwedhelm about an article that discusses what in fact makes a great portrait. Two ideas of those stood out to me:
a meaningful connection
an emotional exchange
I hope that my portrait work be of those two ideas and that I capture a family in a true manner – not a façade. But even going a step further, I want the entire experience to have meaning. A meaning that takes parents (and one day their children) back to that time, just as quickly as a familiar song or smell.
A session this week with a Fort Smith, Arkansas family completed this thought.
Just wanted to say thank you again for such a fun and wonderful experience yesterday. This morning my husband said “yesterday was a really good day” and I agree! Can’t wait to see the photographs. You were great with the kids. We were a large group and I’m sure that has to add difficulty. We super enjoyed the session :)
Talk to you soon,
Thank you Tiffany for letting go and loving your family in front of my camera.
Contact Raye to get your family’s photographs booked soon.
