A Trip Down Memory Lane

Tabitha (7)

I have been photographing for this precious family for some 8 years or so now! The beautiful woman in floral is one of my closest friends, Tabitha Dumas of Tabitha Dumas Signature Color (www.TabithaDumas.com). I adore this photo session with her family from a couple years ago. Her littlest one is about to turn 3! This was a fun trip down memory lane.

Her husband, Drew, is a realtor and has been doing some AMAZING house flips here in the Phoenix metropolitan area recently! You can reach him at ((602) 403-0458).

Family Is Creating Memories Together

When families come to me for a photo session, I know they are not just coming for photos. They want to walk away with positive feelings and knowing that they built memories together in the half hour or hour that I spend with them. I have to work really quickly to help them feel comfortable with me and each other.

I had my own photo session recently for my engagement photos and even though I’ve professionally been photographing for almost 9 years, it was intimidating! You become very vulnerable when you are being photographed and it’s important that your photo clients feel comfortable and relaxed.

Photographers, I think what helps with this are 5 important keys:

  1. Confidence
  2. Connection
  3. Genuinely loving people
  4. Directing
  5. Common ground

The joy and genuine love that came from this family was evident and you could tell them deeply care about each other and I invite you to take a peek into their photo session together.
