Capturing All the Details | Alexandria Photographer

Remembering All the Details

“I want to remember all his favorite things – all the little details!” That’s what this mama told me, an Alexandria Photographer, when she booked her session. She wanted to to remember her little guy’s favorite toys and his nursery and all the little things that mean so much to him right now!

Here’s the truth – you forget all the little things. Believe me – I’ve forgotten. Over the years there are so many things your kids are “into” that you forget some of them. And that’s why it’s so important to make those special items part of your session.

Horses, Books & Balls

His nursery had so many special touches – things that belonged to his parents and even grandparents! But the things he loved the most were his rocking horse, his farm book by one of my fave authors and all the balls he could get his hands on!

Toddlers don’t stay in cribs forever! But now mom will always remember him in his.

Did Someone Say Doughnuts?

Mom did! One of her little guy’s favorite treats. He finished it in about two minutes! Little hands, his little plate and his high chair – such a snap shot of his age and stage.

I love getting pictures in clients’ kitchens because that’s where we all spend a lot of time! Eating, baking, cooking, snacking and probably cleaning. And I know, as an Alexandria Family Photographer I hear it all the time, “but my kitchen isn’t perfect” – YES, yes it is!

They had the best light in their kitchen and I took advantage of it! Focusing most of my shots in the parts of the kitchen mom loves.
