I'm Brianna. Pennsylvania based wedding + portrait photographer. My hair is typically in a messy bun, I usually have a baby on my hip, and I never say no to cake. I want photographs to feel as good as they look, and my overly sentimental, married, momma heart knows the weight of soulful photographs all too well.
It was literally a zillion degrees on this evening.
She was rather pregnant.
Little T didn’t nap.
J just wanted to do boy things.
It could have been a literal hot mess. BUTYAKNOWWHAT. It wasn’t.
AND. We are both photographers. Both moms. You think we would have this family pictures thing ALL FIGURED OUT.
But life + kids are unpredictable. So just know that even if you *feel* like your session was a hot mess…there are still opportunities for magic.
Be like Addie: be kind to yourself, your kids, and dont stress. Think of the wine & ice cream waiting for you at the end, trust that SOME magic is being captured, and that this is the reality of the here & now of your family.
Can’t wait for this family to be asking for a table of FIVE AT A RESTAURANT!
