There are a few reasons I don't like to share too many images from a session before the final delivery. I think holding a stack of brand new photos and flipping through them for the first time is part of the experience. Digital is great for sharing with friends, but there's something about receiving a package in the mail, tearing it open, and sitting on the couch reliving the moments. I want to respect the fact that these images are first and foremost for my clients and they should be able to enjoy them first. It's important to remember why you invest in photography in the first place. Not just to post on social media to eventually get buried in news feeds and lost in the chaos, but to create a legacy for your family that will get carried on for years to come. ⎯
When Caroline comes across these exact images 10, 20, 30 years from now, she will not only see how tiny she was but how special this moment meant to the gorgeous woman holding her.
Now that this session has been delivered, I've shared a few of my favorites (link in profile).
