Dust off that camera and finally learn how to take photos of your family like you've always dreamt of.
"Having our little girl in the middle of this whole pandemic has definitely had its pros and cons...
One of the things we had planned (of course for a few months before my due date) was for someone to come to our house to take newborn photos. You could imagine how sad I was when I realized this wasn't something we were going to be able to do.
However, instead of just accepting that my special newborn photos weren't going to happen, my very sweet husband (who typically does not care about photos as much as I do) and I decided to pick up the camera we received from my parents last Christmas and have our very own photo session! We watched [the Simply by Suzy Photography Course for Parents], learned what aperture and shutter speed were, learned how to edit photos, enlisted the help of some pretty amazing grandparents, and in the end we created something I will never forget!
Now when I look at these photos, not only are they special because they are of our new family of 3 but I am reminded of al the memories we have creating them... spending time together learning a new hobby, going outside at exactly the right time and twisting bodies so that we could get exactly the right light, laughing at trying to entertain a newborn, and holding up every black and white item to try and get her to look at the camera."
I want to start taking beautiful photos of my life, for me and for my children.
I want to learn how to make taking pictures something that's special and fun, so my kids and my partner want to cooperate and take pictures with me.
I don't want to let not having a photographer with me stop my family from having great photos of our best moments.
I want to have beautiful pictures to look at with my children years from now and tell them stories about how wonderful my life with them was.
