Although I photograph sessions primarily in Mingo Creek County Park now that I’ve moved to the upstate of South Carolina, it never ceases to amaze me how many clients I get that are from Pittsburgh. Like, not in Washington County. Apparently the dreaded fear of crossing the county line INTO THE BIG CITY only holds for the South Hills folks. Pittsburghers can happily and blissfully enjoy driving out on unfamiliar roads for a day in the park with no worries 🙂
It’s especially noteworthy when families who are incredibly busy with jobs and Tweens manage it. As a Pittsburgh area family photographer, I know how busy life can be and how it can be challenging to find the right time for a photo session that isn’t rushed or stressful.
I love it when a day that is designated for “photo day” becomes a reason to spend time together instead of yet another job that has to be done.
THAT’S when I know that I have connected with the right client. They don’t look at a family photo session as a chore, but as an opportunity to relax, enjoy one another, and snuggle up together to capture who they are as a family. They already know how important and lasting their images will be as a way to preserve their memories. They know that someday, far in the future, they will be at a family get-together or at home for a holiday and they will pull out the album of images from this session – and delight in the memory of it all.
