I’ve been photographing the Fry family for years & ALWAYS look forward to their sessions. Anna is an incredibly talented graphic designer & that creative thread runs through everything she does. Her house is always decorated perfectly & the clothing she selects has a great combination of color & texture without being distracting. But the thing I love most about photographing these great people, is watching the way Chris & Anna interact. They truly are a team & I don’t think I’ve ever seen them get annoyed at each other. They’re always aware of what the other needs & they both take a very calm & understanding approach to life. Often times photo shoots can be very stressful for families & a lot of self-inflicted pressure can be placed on making sure the baby isn’t crying & that the 2 year old is smiling, looking at the camera & behaving at all times. But Chris & Anna have come to the realization that the fun of photos is truly capturing memories & they’ve found that those images are the ones that they cherish most; not the shot of everyone looking perfectly at the camera, but rather the images that showcase real life. Whether it’s Lola’s fun & spunky personality or her sweet interactions with her baby brother Jackson, the real raw moments are what counts.
In home sessions are so great. In my humble opinion, there’s something extra meaningful & personal about being welcomed into a family’s home to photograph their family. I love seeing the day to day interactions unfold. And when you add beautiful interior design & tons of natural light, you know you’ve got a winner!
