This is a Long Beach family session of a mama and her kids cooking. Real life is rushed. And sometimes, pretty much all the time, we forget we need to slow down. Here’s to slowing down. To real life. Pure, chaotic, real, life. It makes my heart full.
Long Beach Family Photographer, the real-life and intimate kind
I want my families, or my mamas and babies, to invite me into their home (like this one) and do what they’d normally do while I photograph like a fly on the wall. It’s less crazy than it sounds hahaha, we will talk and laugh, and I will photograph the quiet moments of you in your home; while you cook or even bathe your baby, and do the normal stuff. Let’s treasure the every-day moments that will matter most later.
I want to photograph all the small moments
Balance is hard, and real, and chaotic, but also so stinkin’ beautiful. This mama does it with poise and strength and beauty. This is real life. It’s rare to have time to cook, but that’s what happened this day, and I was there to photograph it.
We didn’t plan for me to photograph, we didn’t put time aside for photography. No. They were cooking. I took out my camera, Melissa decided she wanted to look nice so she changed and changed her baby too, then continued cooking, because life.
Scroll through. This is a Long Beach Family Session, and specifically, it was a session of a mama and her babies. Melissa and her kids made the best shrimp tacos ever! In hindsight, it would’ve been a great idea to take a photo of the actual tacos too (we just ate right away)… ’till next time!
Photography is personal and my heart beats for couples and weddings, but for real-life family sessions too. I am a sucker for babies and for mamas. Back in college, I worked at a daycare for 3 years to simply have hands-on experience with the development of children because I am so in awe of how they learn and grow. I want to photograph the real life, the lunch time, the play time, I want to photograph you being a mama and daddy. Simple and sweet as that. The moments that whole-heartedly count in every essence of the moment.
Are you thinking of having a magical in-home family session doing the mundane and loving every bit of it? Oh yeah?! Let’s do it!!
