Busy family? Wild and a bit chaotic at times? Worried about your session because your kids never sit still? That is all music to my ears! This is your family lifestyle right now, and you are asking me to preserve this moment in time for you the way that it is. If I try to wrangle three toddlers all into posing and fake smiling for the camera, a lot of the times it will look forced, and let’s face it–it’s hard! I love when families “warn” me of chaos, and one of the reasons that I enjoy doing outdoor sessions in nature is because of my style of photography. I don’t want the kids to just stand there and say cheese or want to sit on a blanket (other than the quick posed “portrait” shots we get at the beginning of the session); I want them to run about, explore, pick up rocks/sticks/flowers, etc. I want you to laugh and walk together, play and hold hands, interact. This is exactly how I am able to capture natural personalities and get those genuine emotions, which I know is what you want. Chaos is just another word for active, and I can promise you, active families are my favorites!
Speaking of favorites, how could I possibly pick only a handful from this gorgeous session? They were so lovely, the kids so sweet and fun, and we had a blast! There was no shortage of energy here, and I was happy to chase them all as they climbed and played, snuggled, and created a bunch of magic!
Thank you for taking the time to view my blog! I’m Cheri, the photographer behind Moss & Mint Photography, and I am a storyteller. My passion is capturing the real, the raw, the beautiful story called your life, and providing you with the tangible memories of today’s moments with your family for you to cherish forever. I specialize in lifestyle family photography, as well as celebrating childhood milestones from birth all the way through high school graduation. Through my lens, I find the magic in everyday life. My images are rich in color and emotion, and often times set in gorgeous locations. I love warm sunsets and families dancing in it as sun dips behind the trees, photographing all the little details of exactly how you are at this moment. When you look back at your images, you will remember the moments, feel the warmth, and experience it all over again.
