In the Trenches

Being a parent is HARD. Children never ever ever stop needing your attention, love, help, guidance, money, and everything that you are. Of course it's not their fault. It's just the way they are. Parenting humbles you. It stretches you farther than you knew you could go, and yet it's just the small things that bring you big rewards. That first smile, the big hug or kiss on the cheek, or that tiny voice that says, "I love you." That can make it all worthwhile.

There are lots of boring, and mundane days as a parent. You pick up the toys for the thousandth time, and change the never-ending laundry cycles. Then, there are the days you wish life was boring. Those are the days that the temper tantrums never end, and the messes are gargantuan.  All your energy is sapped and you wish for just a boring day picking up toys.

Believe it or not these images are from one of those horrible days for this family. The session starts out rocky - the most rocky I've ever experienced. I was nervous that we wouldn't be able to get the family photos we needed. I know mom was extremely nervous. I love this session even more because you can't tell it started out with tears and anger because all you see is smiles and joy.

This just makes me believe even more in not having time limits for my regular sessions. Sometimes you just need time to adjust, time to relax, and time to figure out what will make everyone happy. This also reminds me that when your life seems too hard or too out of control you just need to be patient. It WILL get better. There will be smiles and happiness again.

Class of 2018 Senior Portrait Special

Are you or someone you love graduation this year? It's the perfect time to document this exciting time in your life with senior portraits. Don't let your portraits be just like everyone else. We can customize your session to incorporate your favorite things. Do you love to play soccer? Let's go to the soccer fields with your uniform on, as well as a beautiful field with a dress. Do you do theater? Let's use the stage as a backdrop, and your favorite spot outdoors. Is surfing your passion? Let's go to the beach. Whatever you love to do we can plan it in your session. If you just want to have a beautiful backdrop and no props or special location that's OK too. It's whatever you want.

JANUARY SPECIAL: If you book your senior portrait session in January our portrait packages will be up to 50% off. You can schedule your session anytime before graduation, but you must book the session before the end of the month. This will save you hundreds of dollars, so you don't want to miss it. Email or call 805-910-7426 to receive a price list, and book your session. I'll provide you with lots of suggestions for locations, what to wear, and how to prepare for the best possible outcome. I'm excited to plan a session just for you.
