Westin's Afternoon

A lot of times, as a professional photographer, I forget to stop and take high quality photos of my life and my son. I end up with a bunch of phone photos which, while phones have come a long way, just aren't the same. For some reason, about 2 years ago (when I was still teaching) I got home one day and decided to just document my son's afternoon. I always wished I had continued photographing all the way until bedtime and this year, I will because, they have turned out to be some of my favorite pictures I have ever taken. I love looking back on the curl in his hair, the way his little legs and big diapered butt still looked so funny in jeans, and remembering how he used to hide behind my easel and knock whatever canvas that was on there, off, so he could use it for his hot wheels cars. They are so honest, they show his personality so well, and they are such a wonderful capture of a time that was so fleeting. This is exactly what is so wonderful about lifestyle sessions. They give you a glimpse back into how exactly life was in that very moment. It wasn't perfect (life never is), but it was absolutely beautiful! They also tend to yield more photos simply because you're just naturally doing life and think about how much variation there is in your movements and actions just going through your day. I vowed, to myself, to do this every year and it's time to do it again. But, here are some of the photos from last year. If this is something you want for your kids, I would LOVE to help you out! Hit that contact tab, at the top of the page, and we'll get started. :)
