Togetherness, you guys.

Is it silly that I feel like I could legitimately do 100 posts about my job, the joy it gives me, the incredible people I get to meet and be with, the energy I get from it, the love I feel from it, the absolute THRILL I get when I deliver a gallery? Yes? No? Sigh.

One of the best parts for me about photographing families is encouraging and documenting togetherness. Everyone is present, because OBVIOUSLY nobody wants to show up to family photos with their cell phone out, scrolling away at facebook, which is something I feel like most people (myself...Included? no. Especially. Keeping it real) are guilty of from time to time.  Family photos are a great way stay focused and in the moment with each other, and it makes it that much easier to go home and be mindful with it comes to my own little ones. 

How to you celebrate togetherness?
