I absolutely loved the family session at Airfield Falls in Fort Worth, TX of Amanda, Shawn, and their little one, Knox. The Stark family’s dynamic was very fun, relaxed, and contagious. For the better part of our time together, I could not stop smiling. In the beginning of the family session, Knox was a little shy and unsure of getting in front of the camera. Once I suggested a race between his parents and himself, he was nothing but enthusiastic. They cuddled, raced, laughed, and later played in a creek. Our evening together taking family photos at Airfield Falls in Fort Worth, TX was so fun and meaningful, I just loved it.
“We love listening to music together. Knox loves picking out records for all of us to listen to. He often opts for listening to “big music” (rock) with daddy and dancing to folk music with mama. He also loves going to festivals and concerts.”
Hearing what families all do with one another fills my heart. Every family is different and photographing them together is so wonderful. Moments with our family, especially young children, pass by faster than we’d usually like them to.
“Family photos are essential. Having those moments displayed at home as art is very important. Theses says everyone has a phone or camera, but having a professional session with an artist will capture to life and moments that phone simply cannot. Also, getting them off the computer and printed is important in preserving these memories and adding true personal touches to our home.”
Growing up, my mom was obsessed with taking photos and videos of me. I have most of my horseback riding lessons on VHS and a plethora of photo albums. I remember things clearer because of all the moments she captured. While we did not get professional photos done often (digital photography was still pretty new), I still understood the value of capturing moments. Obviously, as a family photographer, I understand the value in this. It is, however, wonderful when clients understand this as well! Knowing Amanda values these family photos truly brings me purpose. I hope they treasure these for years to come as Knox grows up.
