Behind the Scenes of our Family Photo Shoot

For this episode of Video Friday, I’m taking you behind the scenes of our recent family photo session.  My hope is that it will remind all of us what our clients go through when they schedule a portrait session.

This year I chose as our photographer my dear friend – Kari Rae.   She’s amazing!  Wait till you see what she captured for us.  And when you consider what she was working with… you’ll be doubly impressed!

Their was a tear or two… stains on brand new clothes, and bribery for one more sweet smile.  It was a lot of work to make this happen, but – make no mistake-  to have these images… telling my story of our happy chaos… It was all worth it!

These pictures were also a great reminder of what our clients experience.  Before the shutter ever closes, our clients have to decide that those last 10 pounds for Mom or those 2 missing front teeth for Jane just aren’t worth waiting for anymore.  There is a lot our clients have to do and ‘get over’ before that camera ever actually even points at them.

Are you ready for more?  I’m determined to prove to as many photographers as will let me that you can have passion, profits and time for a great life.  I create six-figure photographers, and I’d love to teach you, step-by-step, how it’s done.  This is happening for photographers from all over the world who are just like you.  Let me prove just how wildly successful YOU can be!

    Loved the post!!! And adorable photos! I used that same Eco friendly fake snow last year but couldn’t seem to find it this year. Do you happen to know the name of it? Or where it was purchased?
