We recently had our kiddos spring birthdays and scheduled a session with Sabotta Imagery for some good old fashioned family photos and a little smash session for our youngest.
We've been working with Jeff for a number of years now and this guy couldn't make the family photo experience more chill, his attitude is the best and somehow always captures my kids showing their true personalities. In past photo sessions our older kids fought to hold his hands while exiting the session, thats how much they like him!
As my kids grow it is becoming more and more evident how quickly they change and that it is not only that we need to capture their little faces and precious smiles and how they have grow but freezing their spunky, unique little personalities in time that is where the value is!
That silly attitude or the goofy smile or the fancy twirl that is a must for every dress that is what really matters. Whatever your choice is for photography if it is a professional or if you are just snapping on your iPhone, let your kids be themselves. Let them stick their tongue out between their missing teeth or allow your 3 year old to wear her $1 store necklace for the photos even if it wasn't part of your "vision". In 15 years you won't be worried if you got the PERFECT smile you'll want to see pictures of her as HER when she was 3 in that silly necklace she wore all summer long or a fancy twirl that was required with every outfit.
It makes me crazy emotional to think that in 10 years how different our family will look with 3 teenagers who barely will have the time of day for their super un-cool parents. I'm basking in these photos of our kids climbing all over us because truthfully we will never be more loved by them than we are right now... ENJOY!
A huge thank you to one of our favorite guys, amazing photographer Jeff Sabotta, we couldn't be happier to have you as our family photographer and love that you have gotten to see and capture our family as it grows year after year!
