I’m always torn between at-home sessions and getting out and about with my families. On the one hand, there is probably no place else that means more to you and your children than home, where your family’s story unfolds most, both the big and small moments.
But it is definitely not the only place where your family’s memories are made and new stories are written. Especially in an outdoors-y city like Austin, many families have special spots around town that mean as much to them as their home and I love getting out there and playing and exploring with them. And after this sweet daddy and daughter session, I just want to get out there even more.
Garret is good friend of mine and one of the best compliments I’ve received so far from our fellow friends has been how ‘Garret’ these photos are — meaning they reflect who Garret is, what kind of father he is (pssst, he’s pretty awesome), and how he and his daughter like to spend time together.
Authenticity and love. And of course, lovely images. That’s what I strive for each and every family session. And putting together this post of some of my faves, I think I nailed it this session, if I do say so myself.
Now as awesome as our friends’ response has been, by far the very best compliment was when Garret texted me after getting the full gallery and said that it made him tear up. That’s not uncommon to hear from the mommas, but I don’t hear that very often from the dads, which of course makes it all the sweeter.
