FOR THE DARILING

Who Dare to Slow Down

Call it cliché, but seriously. I remember being in the hospital like it was yesterday. Much too quickly I was watching my five-year-old walk hang up his backpack before retreating to the bathroom to let out a scream cry. I can't be the only one. I'm sure you're also wondering where the time has gone. So let's hit that pause button. Put our phones down. Ignore the goldfish crumbs, messy counters, and mounds of loyal laundry. And take a deep breath together.

YOUR ONLY JOB: LAUGH & ENJOY YOUR FAMILY.

Do you feel uncomfortable in front of the camera? Does it sort of feel like you need to perform, and yet you have no idea where to put your hands? What if we stripped all that nonsense away? What if your only job was to simply interact and enjoy your family as you would during any other family outing?

Let me worry about angles and where you should put your hands. You just focus on breathing your family in. Cuddle in, crack some jokes, and be.

You can take a break with a cup of coffee and enjoy your family while I play with your kids on the floor. Or we can get to know each other while enjoying some nature. Think of it as reaping the benefits of a babysitter while I capture this precious yet chaotic season.

"Kara went above and beyond."

"We got to spend a chilly afternoon with Kara. We have a seven month old who doesn't sit still for more than three seconds. Kara did such a fantastic job of helping all of us feel at ease. She worked with our baby and helped her to feel comfortable, which isn't easy for a quarantine baby who really isn't around other people. She took the ebbs and flows of baby's mood in stride and never skipped a beat

 

Prior to our time together, Kara invested time to find out what our family was interested in and suggested an outdoor ski shoot. She captured such fun photos of our family doing something we love. Kara went above and beyond to create not just great pictures but great memories as a family." - Becca R.
