Shoots are rarely perfect for photographer or family, but those moments when they aren't "perfect" are perfect! They are real and unguarded and often are the quintessential representation of that exact moment in time.
Everyone isn't always smiles. A few years ago, J was not happy and was definitely OVER having his picture taken. If we had waited for him to look at the camera and smile there would be NO pictures that day. This is still one of my favorite family portrait shots.
We also got some fantastic shots of the whole family. It's real and natural and for me that is what it is all about.
Yesterday we had another awesome shoot. It wasn't perfect but I am in LOVE with these shots. They are unique and genuine and lovely. Thank you to the Cerceo's for allowing me to help record your memories on a regular basis. It's a treasure for me.
