Be You!

The Way To Be, Is To Be YOU! 😁

Recently, we had the blessing of capturing a few DriveByShootings (Porch Portraits from my vehicle).😉 Until the fun got shut down because of the Stay Home mandate. But, during this time one family made a decision. A decision which impacted me and is still impacting the way I see things.

 

"I don’t know if we can be so creative... I’ll see what we can think of! Might have to be boring. But I’ll try"

Amanda sent the above statement in a message to us. She was seeking our help in capturing her family in a DriveByShooting/Porch Portrait. However, little did she know her little statement would be the 1st domino to fall in a whole line of my mental dominos. Then, she said this! 😲

"We’re looking forward to it. I decided we’re just going to be in our “normal” clothes just the way we are."

This simple statement rocked my mental capacities!!! It caused me to step back, acknowledge her desire and celebrate the family's decision to BE REAL to who they are.

Amanda was helping me to see once again the WHY behind my passion for portraits and the WHY I love photographing families!

Our lives are so unique and needed in this world. Not to mention how necessary they are in the lives of friends and families.

The way to be, is to be you and you make a difference!

Being forced to slow down during the Covid-19 quarantines should help us to stop and look at how much time we spent chasing the dreams and lifestyles of others. As we're forced to seclude ourselves we might see and appreciate how great it is to be exactly who God made us to be. To be just as we are and not strive to be others!

Here's some context!

Once Amanda asked about doing the DriveBy I began trying to help her prepare for the shootings by suggesting helpful tips and preps.

  • What time of day would be best according to light.
  • What the area looks like and how they'd like it to look.
  • What they might do in the portrait.
  • What they might wear in the portrait.

Then I sent her a few examples of DriveBy's we'd already done to help her get some ideas. I included the portrait of our family to see if she'd like to get a little crazy.

She saw the examples and didn't think they'd fit the bill and I'm SO GLAD they didn't try to!

Our family, senior, couple or any other genre of portraits are to capture WHO YOU ARE! Not who we want you to be.

This is why we have mandatory consultation meetings prior to any portrait sessions.

We want to learn about who you are, what you enjoy doing and what other things define you and your character. We make a big effort to get to know you and build a genuine relationship with you. Not only to create beautiful portraits, but beautiful portraits painting an accurate picture of those we're photographing.

We'll help you hone this view into something memorable and lasting,

but we DO NOT WANT TO CHANGE who you are!
