You may remember this family’s birth story. How four years changes things! Their family is defined by overcoming. Rifqah and her husband have commissioned me to document their family annually. Her fight with cancer is a brutal one and only further highlights what a gift each year together really is.
So when I take these photos, I know the deeper meaning behind them. They are a celebration of how far they have come. They are also a reminder of how precious life is. Especially life TOGETHER.
Here are some of the year’s past (here & here) so you can see the progression.
I believe family sessions should include portraits not just your family, but of each child, your children together, you and your spouse with each child individually, and the often neglected… couple photos! Yes, because your relationship still matters and should be celebrated. By the way… they have been married over 10 years and still so in love! These are the photos your children will dig up for milestone anniversaries and their weddings.
Day In The Life Sessions or Outdoor Family Sessions are exclusive for my clients as I have an ongoing relationship with them. I believe it takes a certain level of trust and report to photograph a family this intimately and my availability is mainly reserved for births. Some book them annually or for milestones. But should you book me for your birth or maternity/newborn, you will always be able to hire me again and again to capture the different stages your family is in as the years go by.
I look forward to many more years of documenting their family. Each time we will celebrate another year granted!
Enjoy just some of their beautiful session:
