Fact: We’ve always been right-brained creatives. From writing poetry chapbooks at age 8, to crocheting at 9, and exploring photography by 13, we’ve always appreciated art in all its forms. Due to this passion, we’ve developed our own signature photography style.
Also fact: We’re introverts with a lot of anxiety. And that makes running a business really difficult at times.
Full disclosure, decision-making isn’t always easy for us, and knowing what we want or how to achieve it tends to get lost in the mounting pile of client work. It’s easy to look around and think the answer to happiness and success lies in what others are doing, and then do that. But it turns out that isn’t how it works, and it took a lot of bumps and failures before we realized that.
But in between all those bumps were lessons that taught us that the type of photography we love most is the genuinely interactive kind that only comes out when you allow time to take you there. The bottom line is: we want to get to know you at your session so we can photograph the real version of you.
Unpopular opinion: We hate mini sessions. Though trendy and totally right for some people, fast sessions stifle our creativity and have never felt like a good fit for us.
From our years of photographing families, we know that the end of an hour-long session is always much more carefree and easy-going than the beginning, and that’s when real smiles and belly laughs start to happen! Adults loosen up, kids get to know us, and we all end up having a really genuinely fun time because we play and laugh like old friends.
And before you think it; there’s no need to worry about kids “being good” for that long, because we encourage playing and yelling and joking around, and thrive off of this energy! Because there are two of us (we’re twins, in case you’re new here – hi!), we’re really good at entertaining kids (and even dads that would rather be anywhere else).
Our style of photography keeps you moving and playing with your family, and really, is there anything better than that?
