Kent Park Mini Sessions

I‘ve considered doing mini sessions in the past, but could never line my fall schedule up with an open weekend. Or, if I had an open weekend, it was the only weekend sandwiched between many weekends of weddings and I knew I’d need it reserved to rest. So this year, when I saw that I had two weekends off in a row, combined with peer pressure from my past couples to please take their family photos, I decided to go for it.

As a wedding photographer, I don’t often get the chance to photograph kids as my main subjects. And while I don’t have the desire to switch to family photography full time, I’m so glad I got to step out of my comfort zone and hang out with little humans for a day!

So much of what I do is to photograph people on “the most beautiful, happiest day of their lives”, but after photographing several of my past clients, I think that saying doesn’t apply to weddings. The wedding is the most beautiful and happiest START to the rest of their lives, but this right here? Seeing my couples go from lovers to parents is the most beautiful thing. Seeing their partnership weather some storms and continue digging deeper roots? That’s beauty.

Sure they’re not wearing a designer gown or have professionally applied makeup or hair perfectly curled, but the love that flourishes between them over time is something that no makeup brush can do.

Also, they make beautiful babies.
