These are Days to Remember | Winston Salem Family Photographer

This is the time of year when family portraits come to everyone’s mind for holiday cards and gifts.  Believe me, I know that just the thought of it can be daunting.  What do we wear?  What if my kids don’t cooperate?  What is my HUSBAND doesn’t cooperate?  What if the camera really does add 10 pounds?  But I think these images below will remind you that it’s worth it to capture your family just as they are right now.

Right now, Mr. A is the center of their universe.


Right now, they are a family of three.


Right now,  fake sneezes and animal noises are hilarious.


Right now, Mr. A knows his mommy is the prettiest girl in the world.


Right now, Mr. A is sure that his daddy is strong enough to toss him right to the moon and always be there to catch him.



It was my pleasure to capture this beautiful family’s “right now.”

And as for all the worries….I’ll help you with clothing choices and looking fabulous.  And your kids AND your husband are sure to behave just like most other kids and husbands.   I have a husband and three kids of my own and I’ve photographed many, many families.  I won’t judge, I promise. :)  What I WILL do is capture these days, the ones you will want to remember when they are gone.
