I know it seems like people are always saying “This might just be my favorite session ever!” And while I find myself starting to type that all the time, I always have to delete it because I start to worry that I’ll make someone else feel bad. Like, if THIS one is my favorite session, what about the one I just did last week? Are they going to think I don’t like them anymore? And does me picking favorites make this some kind of dumb competition for my love? Because I can’t have that! No way. Not gonna do it. Can’t have a favorite. Won’t have a favorite!
I mean, truth be told, I realize that no one else really cares that much, but I do. And I’d like to be clear: I love all my clients and all my sessions for different reasons. There is not one single session that’s exactly like the other, so it’s easy to love them all.
This one, for example, took place in Perry County where I grew up. I often get teased for being from such a rural location, but I’m so Perry Country proud that I don’t ever care!!! Being here and shooting this session made me nostalgic for my childhood. It was so gorgeous. The family was so humble and kind and loving. The kids were free to run and play and be free. IT WAS AMAZING. It almost made me want to up and move my family to the country.
Almost. When I remembered that we had to drive AT LEAST 30 minutes, if not 45, just to go grocery shopping as a kid, I decided that I’d just like to do more sessions in good ol’ PeCo so I can soak up the country family goodness while I’m there and then go back to my 10 minute grocery commute (that still feels so long some days!).
Anyway... you won’t catch me saying that this is my favorite session ever, but I absolutely WILL say that I 110% loved every second of this family session and totally adore these people!
Do you live in Perry County, too? PLEASE HIRE ME to photograph your family in your home! Do you live somewhere other than Perry County? It’s ok. PLEASE HIRE ME to photographer your family in your home... I love where I grew up, but I love lots of other places too. :)
