I had the pleasure of putting together a session album this weekend for one absolutely stunning newborn boy.  His mom told me via email that she cries every time she sees his slideshow (she wants to remember those times!) and that was my goal for his album, too.  I wanted to pull on her heart strings.  🙂  It’s SO touching and amazing when images move people.  I just LOVE that part about this job.  

As I was going over the session album with her in her office, she was beaming turning the pages…and you know what she said??? 

She said, “Maggie, I’m SO glad you captured those swirls of hair on his arm, because they’re gone now.”  *****I felt like a rockstar because YES…she’s so right.  Who (besides a photographer) has a macro lens and/or thinks about zooming in on arm hair?  It’s those little special things that I love. 

SO you’re thinking…okay, I just had a family session, and while I love a bunch of the images, I don’t need EVERY single one in an album…SURE YOU DO!!! 🙂  Sure every image from your session isn’t going be your absolute fave.  BUT…the cool thing is that all the images together tell a story.  Those pictures fit together like puzzle pieces and when they’re all together, there’s nothing like it! 

So, think about the session album.  It’s a great way to have everything, but not have to DO anything (frames, etc).  Knowing how much my kiddos look at old digital scrapbooks I have, I know if I had an album like this, it would definitely be one of the most popular “books” at our home.  It’d have to be viewed with a parent, of course though!!!   🙂

Have a great one!  We’re off to the mountains for the day…ahhhhh………   ~m
