Two Things I Tell All My Clients

Ashley Newman Photography

I have had the privilege of nearly a year with this family. The miles can't keep us apart. Joseph, you are an absolute joy. Your parents adore you something fierce and have hearts as big as Texas ;) It has been my honor to serve your family, so closing this chapter is bitter sweet but the ride is the stuff that makes your soul grow. Thank you for sharing your family with me and giving me your time. Sending you off into year two with love and grace.

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.
