THE  WEDDING GUIDE

Keep your wedding day running on track with some of my top tips for a stress-free day!

Sometimes people ask me if I ever just “enjoy” a family outing or event or basically anything without “having” to take all the pictures.  I find it amusing, almost, the frequency with which I am asked about my ability to enjoy my children without taking pictures of them.  The funny part is…what do we see when we are at a park, museum or celebration?  A bunch of parents following their kids around with their phones trying to catch a few quick pictures.  That’s basically the definition of a lifestyle photographer.

Taking pictures is something I love.  Taking pictures of my children is something I absolutely adore…ESPECIALLY in a candid and busy environment.  I don’t like to ask for smiles or eye contact from them, it usually results in a meltdown or a limited number of frames allowed.  But when I’m just there observing their fleeting little actions they don’t mind my camera.  And, believe it or not, I can SEE through it to witness everything they are doing but I also get to keep that memory safe forever with a quick shutter release.

Don’t get me wrong, I don’t drag my camera around everywhere we go.  But if you see me out and I’m taking pictures, don’t worry I’m having just as much fun as they are 🙂

Our trip to the B&O Railroad Museum on our visit to Baltimore (home) this year.
