One of the most known phrases (if you're a GOT fan) is WINTER IS COMING! Well, if you're a photographer FALL is THE season. I even own a shirt that a client gave me (from my Wayfair days) that says FALL IS COMING. Fall is MAGICAL, BREATHTAKING & CRAZY BUSY. It's a photographer's dream. We get inspired by mother nature and love & we shoot every single day. The love that we see is real, candid, and emotional. The fall breeze is magical, not too cold, it's perfect.

The fact that you're reading this blog means that you have a desire deep in your heart to freeze time. We go through life in a hurry. We love our kids, yet we're mostly running on task, going off the script seems desirable yet sometimes so complicated.

A family photo session is an opportunity to do just that, to prioritize to slow down and dedicate time for memories. The photographer will facilitate the session, but it's your family's essence that will shine through. You'll get portraits of the most important people in your life with YOU in the frame; isn't that the best gift for a parent's heart ten years from now?

We're in an era that moms crave to remember all the little details of their kids, technology is available 24×7, and we're always snapping photos of our kids with our phones.

What's missing from this interaction is that we — moms — are barely in the frame, let alone as a family of 4 (my case!). That's when a family photo session with a professional becomes something to crave for. Here are a few reasons why you should have it fulfilled.

When Carolina reached out to me to ask whether I would photograph her baby's birth, I could not feel more honored and excited. I had been in the photography business for years yet it was my first time photographing a birth! This is a special moment in a woman's life, and she was asking me to witness and capture it with my camera.

Today, this birth stands as one of the most special moments in my career as a family photographer. Here's my recollection of this special moment. And because I want you to understand what this experience really entails for Mom and baby (and Dad, of course), I've asked Carolina to share her impressions and memories as well.
