Being a Seattle glamour photographer means I get to photograph people like Linnea. People who are kind and thoughtful and fun and absolutely beautiful. Linnea is certainly all of those things.
She is also a mother of two little darlings. I had the pleasure of meeting them when Linnea came to the studio for her photo reveal and those little munchkins loved my sparkly jewelry as much as I do! I think it is so important to have beautiful photos of yourself not only for you, but for your children. Linnea’s son and daughter are going to absolutely cherish the photos they have of their mother when they are adults. It makes me teary-eyed just thinking about it.
Linnea didn’t wait for the “perfect” time to do photos. She just did it. We could make excuse after excuse about why it isn’t the right time to get in front of the camera. We say we need to lose weight, we don’t have the time, we can’t afford it, we want to make sure we get photos of the kids first… I could go on and on.
I have never heard someone say, “Wow, I wish my mom hadn’t gotten these beautiful photos taken. I mean, she REALLY needed to lose 10 pounds”. What I have heard is people say that their mom waited for the perfect time to get her photos taken and then the perfect time never came, so she never did it…and now they have very few really great photos of her. How amazing would it be if you had glamour portraits of your mom?!
Make sure you exist in photographs for your children. Just like Linnea does for her little loves.
