I was culling through my images from a recent session and stopped at this image. I thought to myself, “Should I keep this image in the gallery?”. I didn’t dwell on it long. It made it into the gallery. The image isn’t perfect. No one was even looking at the camera. Why did I keep it? It’s simple really.
Embrace the imperfections. Embrace your story. It’s nice to have the classic family portrait, but it’s the random moments that will produce a feeling or spark a memory. These moments will strike a cord as you view your images years from now and the kids are living their lives and the chaos is at a minimum.
