Of course I love babies, and most of my focus is on newborns, but I really love portraiture in general. I will photograph most any human (or pet) that will let me! And I realized that I have recently been fortunate to have a series of beautiful couples, and I love it!
When did you last drag your parents in front of a camera? Most of us are pretty good about pictures of our kids because we are aware that they are changing fast. But sometimes we let years (decades?) go by without other family pictures because we figure we are staying the same every year and have all the time in the world.
But maybe plan ahead this summer and try to get a professional portrait of the whole extended family when you are together, or at least one of your parents or grandparents. The pictures of our extended family on the wall make us smile and keep them close to us because we happen to be all alone here in Michigan. (Shout out California/Florida/Texas/Georgia/Pennsylvania/Washington/Illinois family!) If you’re lucky enough to be going up north to the lake with grandparents and cousins this summer, record it! There are great photographers up north! (And a photo session with grandkids would make a great gift for people who have no room in their lives for more STUFF.)
