Fall is the season of mini-sessions, and I think that is just perfect. With summer winding down, school in full swing, vacations behind us and routines back on track – this is the perfect time to get some photos taken. While traditionally families and little ones are the usual
suspects subjects for these quick sessions, I am of the opinion that couples need to take more advantage, and in particular married couples. Why you ask? Just hear me out on this one, I feel the need to give an in-depth explanation. After the wedding day, when is the next time couples take photos together just to remember the good times? I personally LOVE to browse through photo albums of my parents when they were all young and wild before starting a family. To be honest I barely ever thought of my parents as people who at one point were NOT the parents of anyone until I saw those photos. Have you ever stopped to consider that your parents had a whole life before you? It actually blows my mind. Having fairly recently become a mother myself, I am appreciating whole-heartedly any photos of myself and my husband before we were parents (but after our wedding day). There’s a whole new level to the relationship after marriage, something that I think warrants documentation, even in the smallest way. In the day to day, we get busy and forget to take photos or don’t think we look our best so we choose not to take that photo together. This is when it becomes very much worth it to dedicate a time & date to just that, portraits. Memories. Reminders of who you are before bigger steps in life – and your future-self will love your present-self for it.
If those reasons didn’t convince you, here’s a modern take:
