The sweetest of Jackson Hole in-home family sessions with this family. Aside from this style being one of my favorite things, I could have sat with Wynne and played with the kids and talked about life for the entire rest of the afternoon and night. I left with a soul filled with love, not only from these little munchkins but because the immediate friendship I felt with Wynne.
When I was first prepping for our shoot, I sent Wynne a general list of some overall photo concepts I wanted to capture. She quickly wrote me back and let me know she was open to whatever, but preferred a more documentary style of images and less posed shots…. music to my ears! Sometimes, the best moments are captured by having… TIME.
Often we rush, we rush everywhere in this world. When i’m working on my wedding couples timelines, I sometimes feel a pressure to explain every minute of their package with me, or that i’ve done something wrong if I didn’t fill every moment. But, at the end of the day, there’s a reason I don’t. Not only does life often shift, but having extra time means a little time to relax and settle, which means I capture moments that are the most YOU. I sat on the floor and played with Teddy and Charlie, chatted with Wynne, hung out with Ben, and documented moments in an afternoon in their lives during these crazy times. Charlie was born during the beginning of Covid, so their whole world literally shifted in the past year!
I’m in love with these moments, and I hope they inspire more families to take the time to not only document the formal or wild outdoor shots, but also capture some of the quieter moments in their lives together.
