Katy, who is not only a full time working mom but is also in a doctorate level academic program, knows her time with her sons is precious, which is why we truly appreciate her making the time to bring her boys in for a Renaissance session.
“We keep a very busy schedule so the time we spend together is precious,” says Katy.
When she’s not working or studying, Katy enjoys building block towers and art projects like coloring and playing hockey outside with her three year old and her nearly two year old.
Katy had seen some of the photos of families and children from our Renaissance sessions and she became quickly convinced that she needed to do a session with her boys.
“I saw some of the photos online and loved the look of them as true art, like a painting. They were beautiful and like nothing I’ve ever seen before. The renaissance photos looked like actual paintings in a museum,” she shared with us.
The day of the session Katy says she was excited but had some nerves, as she knows how tricky it can be to photograph young children! She was pleasantly surprised by how smoothly the session went.
“The session far exceeded my expectations. Working with children can be stressful and you are wanting to have them look cute and smile, and sometimes they just don’t want to cooperate. Erika was very gracious and could not have been sweeter with my boys. We really had a fun time and they kids were laughing with Erika and thought she was a blast. She really exceeded my expectations of patience and grace. And of course the photos came out wonderful!”
Some of her favorite photos wound up being the ones where her boys were caught in the moment just being silly and laughing.
“You can’t deny the innocence and smile of a child. Seeing my boys portrayed as angels was perfect.”
She also loves the ones where each of her boys is giving her a kiss.
“It just makes me shine on the inside. To see that they love me and I love them and to have it captured is really special. Sometimes the mom is the picture taker instead of the subject, so this was really nice to have some pictures of me with my boys.”
Katy is so happy to have some lasting memories documented that they can look back on.
“I just wanted to have something like this to have to look back on the time when my babies were little. In the end, I purchased an album because there were just so many images I wanted to have forever. I picked it up yesterday and it is beautiful. I’ll cherish it all my life,” she said.
Katy had such a positive experience with us she says she can’t wait to return for future sessions!
