ARP family : MY Girls

This session was my Mother's Day gift :) WHY?  Because I never get infront of the camera with my girls. Please don't think that it's because I'm a photographer - that is not the reason. 

The reason is because in my mind - it's never the perfect time. I have a tummy pudge, my hair doesn't look right, the girls need  hair cuts, we don't have the right clothes blah, blah, blah, blah!!!!!
WELL guess what...all my girls will care about and fight over are these images of us together. They will LOVE THEM with a passion. They wont dissect themselves - they'll see that we are silly, serious, BEAUTIFUL, goofy and they will see that I LOVE THEM. I LOVE THEM enough to get over myself and get in a session. 

YES - there it is - I said it - GET OVER YOUR SELF.
Stop staying "oh I just want to have images made of my kids, I don't need to get in the images... I need to lose weight, this just isn't a good time" Again with the blah blah blah. It's not for you OR about you - it's for them. Show your kids how to be confident and proud of who they are.

So pick up the phone and call your photographer and book a session with your kids. I WISH I had this with my mom, I WISH I had this with my dad. 

The PERFECT TIME is now - so go do it!!!!!

Allison :)

I *LOVE* these Allison. Adore is probably a better word...so pretty, simple and sweet.

This so made me tear up! You three look beautiful! they have seriously gotten so so big. I love the images:)

I would have to agree with Farrah...I adore these images! Fable is getting so tall and pretty and Ever has grown so much! Love the one of the two girls with Ever's legs bent up on Fable. LOVE the ones of Ever on your lap....so cute and you tickling her is awesome! Fable will love having that one of just the two of you....you both look beautiful! I could really comment on each one but that is all I have to say!

yea!! and i so totally agree...and have been right there with you sometimes (took awhile to get the baby weight off) but yes, good to get over that, especially for the sake of memories for the kiddos and others :)

I want. I need. For me and my little boy. You rule, girl.

ARP Session : Sweet Gals

Assisting on photo shoots with Allison is definitely one of the best perks of my job. Not only do I get to let all of my silliness out and run around all crazy, but I get to watch the master at work! Anna Powell and Chapman's shoot was the perfect example of this. They both came in smiling, but also were a little timid--of course, the best spot to be is with mommy and daddy! As the shoot went on, we watched as they both warmed up to us. And by the end of the shoot, WE were the chosen ones who got to carry them back to the studio! Talk about sweet. :)

I was lucky enough to capture this cuddle moment as a train passed through the square....I think they were a little startled. ;)
