An ordinary day has so many little moments worth documenting. The way your littlest clings to your leg, carries a baby doll in each hand, or lays their head on your chest won't last forever. So do yourself a favor and book a photosession with the goal of freezing these moments in time.
I book an annual session for my family. We mostly snuggle in bed, make a meal, and sit on our couch with our iPads. YES we aim to do exactly what we would be doing if there wasn't a photographer in the room. Think how funny we will look when iPads no longer exist! We also do the activities we love doing together like bowling, swimming, playing board games, or going out for ice cream.
Yes, it is really as crazy as it sounds. I show up at your house the day before to meet your kids and or to put your husband/partner's mind at ease. Then we do this thing. I follow you around with my cameras to get the laughter and tears as you go about your everyday life. Common question: Do I follow you into the bathroom? (yes I have been asked). I follow little people. Big people you get the privacy you only dream the kids would give you.
So what should we do????? I have done a 1st birthday and anniversary for special occasions, but otherwise just an ordinary day filled with your extraordinary moments. Just life as you know it.
