The Kaiser Family: A fall session at the University of Virginia | Charlottesville Family Photographer
If you ask the Kaisers, they might say their session at the University of Virginia didn't go as planned. Their usually happy, silly twins were having a hard afternoon. There were tears and meltdowns, and I know mom and dad left wondering if we had captured anything good.
But if you ask me, it was totally normal.
Session day isn't always the kids' day — and that's okay. Because where you see tears, I see the way you hold them close. Where you see a tantrum, I see the moment your silly songs make them smile again. (And when those don't work, I have some tricks up my own sleeve.)
Just like life, sessions are often about the in-between moments. They might only last a few seconds, but they always add up to a beautiful memory.
When I met with the Kaisers again for our Reveal Session, they were so in love with the final images. They couldn't believe these were from the same evening!
And that's really all I want as a family photographer — to show you that there's beauty even in chaotic moments, even through tears and hard times.
