Houston Family Photographer
Ashley Newman Photography
I have had the privilege of not only personally knowing this family but getting to work with Julia within my business. They are so talented and their family has stolen my heart. We have been through some hard stuff together within our families and it has brought us closer together. So yeah…I love them. When Julia booked this session, it was as a client not a photographer. So we had to dive into how to prepare, what to wear and what to expect at their session. Good thing I have all of that already set up for all my clients!
Do you have a milestone begging to be documented?
Planning a milestone session doesn’t have to be hard! This what I always tell my clients:
- Keep your hands busy: Hold your child’s hand, give kisses, brush their hair behind their ear, play and dance, chase and ask questions, pick flowers, tell secrets, start a tickle fight. Keep moving and enjoy the process with your children. Activities you enjoy doing with one another will help tell an authentic story and capture your true personalities.
- Stay patient and positive. Children tend to go at their own pace – and that’s fine. On the day of your session, we will work with you and your family to make sure everyone has an enjoyable, relaxed experience. If that means your preschooler needs to take a break for a snack, or your baby needs a new diaper and a change of clothes, you should feel comfortable to take the time you need. We know that a great photo session takes flexibility and patience. Accept the unpredictable: Embrace the chaos of the moment and this season of life. Honest connections and candid connections create real and specific memories.
Be vulnerable and open in front of the camera and your family’s story will begin to pour out.
