I know, I know, it’s on your “to-do” list…it has been on the back of your mind for weeks, no…months. You keep pushing it off and then you see my posts on Facebook and Instagram and think “oh yeah” I need to do that. Yes! You do need to do that! Photo sessions don’t have to be a chore, they can…no, they SHOULD be so much fun! Please don’t put it off any longer, I would LOVE to be your family photographer and I will take you by the hand, help you with planning – that includes locations of choice, wardrobe selections, coordinating props and meeting your expectations…heck I even sing and dance, not very well, but I do it! Ha ha, anything for a genuine laugh.
^^^cute right? Doesn’t it just pull on your heart strings? This could be YOUR baby! I’m great with babies…and toddlers (yes, seriously!) and kids of all ages really. I have two of my own. I have two totally opposite children and I can make them BOTH belly laugh from time to time, I know I can make your kids laugh too. I think it is because I’m just a little goofy, but I always get down to their level.
Ok, so why do you need to book your photo session NOW? Why wait? There are so many GREAT reasons to stop putting off your photo session and just come have FUN with me while I capture some amazing memories of your family…of your kids…who are not getting any younger by the way. Which brings me to THIS…
Reason #1: 940 Saturdays. That is ALL we have with our kids, until they are grown and moved out. I know, it makes me weepy too, but it’s the honest truth. We only have such a SHORT time with our little ones, they are only THIS little for such a SHORT period of time (believe me, I have a 13 year old…time does freakin’ fly! She will be in high school next year and I cannot stop thinking about her and how hard she was to potty train and now she’s going into high school. HIGH SCHOOL people. Trust me, time flies!). You will always want to remember what they looked like when they were tiny. It is just fun to look back upon those times. Book your session now. Before you blink.
Reason #2: They need memories of YOU. Without getting too somber here, let’s face it…we aren’t on this earth forever. One day your kids are going to want to show their kids and their kids kids kids (you get the point) what YOU looked like. When you were young. Or how they looked with you when they were young. I remember growing up looking through my mom’s old shoe box and old albums (the kind with sticky backing that you stuck the photo to and put the plastic clear sheet over, remember that?), it was so much fun looking at my mom back before she even had us kids, but then seeing her pregnant with me…and then family photos, photos of my great grandparents that I never got to know. I love looking back and reminiscing, it is so much fun and those photos always tell a story. YOUR story. Let’s capture some memories of you, so that you can one day leave YOUR legacy. Book your session now.
Reason #3: Golden sunlight. It’s out there people, every darn day. At sunset. And I LOVE it, YOU love it, we all love the California golden sun. It looks amazing in the background with your kiddos dancing in the light. It is warm and delicious and if it were a food I’d probably call it warm buttery popcorn (sorry, I’m a foodie at heart). Living in Southern California we are incredibly BLESSED with having the sun around most of the year, 266 days out of the year in fact. (sorry to all of my Midwest and East Coast viewers…hey, move here! hee hee!) I love being a photographer here because we have sunlight year round practically and I would love to use it, don’t let any more sunsets go to waste people. Book your session now.
Reason #4: Locations, so many GORGEOUS locations. Again, being in Southern California we have it ALL. We have the mountains (let’s do a session in Big Bear, in the snow, what do ya say?!), we have the beach…sooooooooo many beaches….rocky beaches, beaches with cliffs, beaches with miles and miles of SAND, beaches with piers, beaches with shops, so many different beach options. We have FIELDS. Like luxurious full grassy (sometimes brown, hee hee silly drought) fields, and FLOWERS in the Springtime. Nature trails GALORE. So many trails with greenery and flowers and cacti. We have urban, textured walls and murals on walls and blue/yellow/red/artsy walls. There are a zillion different locations to choose from. We are not lacking in this area at all. All very beautiful in their own ways too! Ok, just do it. Book your session now.
Reason #5: You know you want to. Why wait? You are very well equipped to book now, I am right here for you…me, THIS photographer. I am dying to get to know you, your family, your kids, create memories, run in the field with you, tickle your baby, pretend sneeze, sing, dance, laugh until our guts hurt. Let’s DO this. Let’s create some memories for your family to cherish for years upon years upon years! NOW is the time. Book your session now.
