I spend a lot of time each year documenting weddings, newly engaged couples, and families. It’s what I do. I have recently noticed that I haven’t yet photographed a couple, NOT recently engaged or married, or NOT with several children just outside the frame pulling them in different directions. Yes, I always remember to take a couple of pictures of mom and dad during family sessions, because I think that it’s important to have at least one great picture of just them without the kids, but the reality of it is, the kids are usually causing trouble nearby and mom and dad struggle to smile for one one-hundredth of a second before Johnny pulls Sally’s hair and she squeals, attracting the worried attention of passers-by.
For all you married couples out there: How many times since your wedding day (how many years ago was that, again?) have you been photographed, professionally, without the kids, for no other reason than to get some updated, professional images of just the two of you?
That’s what I thought. And I’m guilty of the very same thing. (And yes, I plan to do something about that soon)
The Anytime Session is just what you and your significant other need – the weather is on the brink of turning to warmer days, and there’s no time like the present to have your picture taken for no other reasons than the ones stated above. It’s good for the two of you. Make an afternoon out of it: Hire a babysitter and go out for a nice dinner after the session. It’ll be fun. I promise.
The Anytime Session isn’t unlike my engagement sessions. It’s relaxed and casual, not overly posed with cheesy, fake smiles. It’s about the two of you, not your relationship with my camera. Ideally it would take place at a location that’s meaningful to you as a couple, but great sessions can happen just about anywhere.
Whether you’ve been married for just a few years, or you’re pushing a a few decades, call me to schedule your Anytime Session, and finally have some images of the two of you worth putting on the walls!
