When our little ones are young, it’s no wonder that we maxed out the storage on our phones with photos of priceless moments, unforgettable family experiences, and hilarious childhood antics. We want to remember every single minute that we have together as a family. We know that these cuties seem to grow overnight and we covet the sweet times together. While others may see just another photo of a kid running through the yard, but we see the whole world in those bright eyes and beautiful smiles. This is what love looks like.
And although I’m truly grateful for the convenience of iPhone cameras that allow us to capture those day-to-day experiences, there’s also something to be said for professional family portraits that can be turned into art and preserved as heirlooms for years to come. While the photos on our phones get shared with social media or sent as screenshots to friends or family, professional portraits serve as high-quality artwork that can be hung on the mantel or decorate the walls of your home. You can put these in greeting cards or cherished photo albums.
A few months ago, the Desai family reached out to me about updating their family portraits. She heard about me through my cousin, and when we got in touch, we knew it was the perfect fit. They knew they wanted professional photography, but rather than formal, traditional poses, they were looking for something a bit more authentic to show off their kiddos’ sweet personalities and close family bond.
On the most gorgeous day ever, we headed out to my favorite outdoor location. On this particular evening, the sun glowed just perfectly through the trees and illuminated this family’s big smiles even more. As they explored the area and spent some quality time together away from the busyness of everyday life, I discreetly clicked away. I love how naturally they fell into the most beautiful, loving poses! What a wonderful session with a wonderful family – check out their photos below!
