I just can’t stand it, I LOOOOOVE everything about kids! From the newest of the new babies to 18 month old (who does not want to stop to take a photo) to the preteen (oh boy), yes I love it all. Believe it or not, we get pictures and smiles, usually they are happier than when they came in. And yes, sometimes they make me sweat a little, but truly all worth it! It is worth it, because to have these moments and memories to keep and look back on is a gift. As parents we don’t want to forget a single stage, we want to remember how little they were with that silly smile or that orneriness coming through! All things wonderful to celebrate and to create beautifully!?
ENDLESS PATIENCE & ENTHUSIASM
Kids do things on their own terms. As a photographer, I expect this! I’m not upset when your three-year-old has a meltdown or when your son asks to take a picture with my camera. I simply love kids; I have kids myself. They have taught me so much and lots of patience with gentle guiding goes a long way when taking pictures.
PROBLEMS SOLVED BEFORE THEY HAPPEN
With 20 years of photographing kiddos and after many, many, many sessions, I’m great at anticipating tricky situations and resolving them in advance. I have kiddos of my own and understand it all, trust me. Nothing surprises me or gets me worked up. Either my kids have done something like it before or I have seen it, please no worries at all during your session, lol! I have a few tricks for every age!
I GENUINELY LOVE KIDS
I truly love kids! When you work with Heirloom Portrait Design, you become my extended family. I’ll cheer with you when your baby gets ready for kindergarten, and I’ll tear up if you move away. I’ve been photographing some of my clients since in 2001, and it’s been a joy and a privilege to watch their children and families grow.
