What I love most about photography is documenting. Taking everyday moments and freezing them. Not just what is happening but the emotions. Being able to bring alive a moment that has already passed. I love hearing a client tell me that they just love their photos. And seeing posts about how much emotion that the photos have evoked. Then I know that I have done my job well.
Being at Anna's house to her was just another day but with a photographer tagging along. But for me it was a story unfolding it was exciting. Watching her go about her daily tasks to me is just beautiful. Taking care of her family mothering two little people to mold them into adults. Anna and the boys were perfect subjects because they pretty much just ignored me for the time that I was there. The boys had things they had to do so they could have tablet time and for them it was very important business. And I love that one of their chores was mandatory play time. I always walk away from my sessions with a little piece of my clients in my heart. This family was no exception. The soul of this family is filled with kindness and love.

I would love to tell your family's story whatever it may be. I would even be willing to go on vacation with you *wink* wink*. Jennifer@jenniejamesphotography.com
Finally, some well deserved tablet time.

New York the city that brought out so many emotions in me. I was terrified and excited to be walking among all of the people. I found a braveness I never had before and asked a few people if I could take their photo. I saw things that made me so sad that by the end of the trip I had to try so hard not to look which stung in a different way. Just writing this brings the rush of feelings back and makes me cry.
We had so many laughs and fun that I will never forget. Middle eastern spider man will be forever ingrained into my mind. Sydney using her feet to do weird things and putting on a comedy show for us. (some day I will start booking her for gigs :-) ) Staying up till the wee hours in the morning and trying to find our way on the subway.
What I will remember the most will be the amazing time with my daughter, mom and sister. The laughter was the most wonderful part of this trip. We all laughed so much. And seeing my mom so happy was worth the trip. ( Thanks mom for the opportunity to go on this trip)
Picking photos to share was so hard so let's just say that this is part 1.
