Some might say that there is no such thing as “picture perfect”.

I disagree. There certainly is.

Any family, couple or individual who is willing to step forward and be themselves without hesitation IS “picture perfect”.

The Parker family is just that.

It was a very cold morning, but even through the brisk air, I could feel the warmth of their smiles as I looked through my lens. Their hearts were open and ready to share the joy with one another. I was able to give very little direction and in what I consider the best shots, I felt like I was witnessing something so very rare; true love.

This family had love for one another, love of being together and love of experiencing life…no matter where that journey took them.

Don’t get wrapped up in “your best side” or what you might think is your biggest flaw. Those issues will fade into the background, per say, and the interactions will shine through.

Next time you are worried about being “picture perfect” remember, very little has to do with what you are wearing or even where you are. The energy, the soul and the perfection of those images are found at their core —  the raw emotion which lingers through the session.
