It's such a fun, gratifying experience to watch a family grow over the course of a few years. Little personalities emerging, sibling relationships being forged in those very first moments. And more and more I'm leaning toward only doing family sessions in and around the home and perhaps on little purposeful outings. It feels stressful for both parents and children to have to stand still and smile for photographs. The dynamic of relationships and giggles, cries, quiet, silliness, and joy welling up naturally is where true magic is to be made.
It's always a pleasure spending time with the Dempseys. This light filled shared bedroom is the perfect little spot to sprawl out and enjoy a morning.
