Although you truly don’t need an excuse to have family portraits updated, a confirmation is a great reason to!
This gorgeous family found me on the internet and arrived for a confirmation session for their daughter. It was the first time I didn't have to tell a cold caller about the experience. This woman said she saw my work and knew I was the one as she booked me on the spot.
While the daughter was having her hair and make up done I photographed Dad by himself. Then I did a few shots of Mom and then the couple. By the time the daughter was ready to go we hopped on set for some family portraits and then focused on the daughter. Dad was so happy to be finished and Mom was in love with the experience. So we sent dad home and he came back for a pick up when the ladies were finished floating around the studio being photographed in all different ways.
Since then this family has booked two more sessions and we have become friends. This is an unexpected benefit of becoming a portrait photographer. We spend a fair amount of time together preparing beforehand and then a lot of hours on the shoot date so it's easy to get to know each other. Now we message and text like besties and I am thankful my art has brought these wonderful people into my life.
