When I talk with clients about our upcoming session and they ask what to bring, I always remind them to bring something special from their home or family; something that has meaning or "a story" that they would like included in the photos in a creative way.
Sometimes it is a well loved blanket or stuffed animal. Other times, it is something like little Sailor is nestled on in this photo. The quilt she is resting so peacefully on was her moms from when she was little. How amazing that her mom kept it all these years to pass on and that they brought it to the session to include as part of Sailor's "story."
|Another amazing piece of Sailor's family history has been preserved for her physically and now in these photos. Pictured here is the christening gown she will wear soon. It was also worn by her mom and many other family members. After capturing this photo, Sailor's mom told me she plans on sharing the photos with everyone who has worn it. How awesome...everyone can now cherish the memory of the gown in photos, telling their "story".
