there’s a difference between pretty-ness and beauty.
you probably already know that, but let me explain.
beauty isn’t just a bigger grander version of pretty. It’s full of depth and knowing, like the way your mother is gorgeous to you because she’s lived, even though her body isn’t as “pretty” as it was when she was 18 and her face has lines now. when you look at her eyes you can see she’s known sorrow, big rivers of it–but that she’s strong and isn’t afraid to rip her heart open to huge joy too.
beauty is the thing that gets me. the stuff that has a few raw edges from experience, the poems that take an unexpected turn, the photographs that say more than what the person looks like.
on this day i felt like we were doing more than documentation of what this family looks like. because let’s just call out the elephant in the room, they are one hundred percent pretty as pretty can be and their house is like whoa, but also, they are so, so beautiful–and that. that’s what i wanted to show you.
well hello, if you’re still here you just might be interested in a family session that feels like this–kicking cheese-saying to the curb and full of, you guessed it, feelings. your best people and most treasured relationships bottled in a way that’s more than “documentation.” here’s what Aubrey had to say: “The pictures are everything I was hoping for with a little somethin’ somethin’ extra that only you could make happen! I didn’t just want to have a keepsake of our faces, I wanted to preserve the nuances that are specifically us–the relationships that are each unique and dynamic–and you certainly brought that to the table. Thank you, thank you, thank you for giving us this experience.”
Let’s chat about your family session–cause there’s only 1 count it o-n-e family session left this fall in time for Christmas cards and I’d love you to have it.
