We all want to live in that beautiful, Instagram-model world but most of us don't. Instagram models don't even live in that world. While I'll never stop loving the beauty of a carefully planned wedding, when it comes to the people in the photos I want the real emotions and expressions.
Genuine moments are starting to become a huge focus of my photography. If it ain't real, I don't want it. The whole concept for a kids photoshoot in the bathtub evolved from that mentality. What is one of the realest ways families bond and connect when kids are young? Through routines and activities - one of them being bath time! Most kids love bath time, it's a chance to play and have fun. Who doesn't love splashing around in bubbles and water?
The normal ordinary parts of your day, like bath time, might not be the beautiful, organized, perfect Instagram post but these are the moments that you'll be looking back fondly on in 5, 10, even 20 years. The reality we live in day to day is so emotionally rich if we just take a moment to experience it, and it can be just as beautiful as our carefully positioned latte photographs.
