The Lifetime Experience | Behind the scenes


This post has been a long time in the makings:  to try and explain something that has my entire heart is a heavy heavy deal!

It’s no secret that my heart, my photographer heart belongs with children and families!  It’s where I’m called to serve and where I truly feel in my element!

My story with children and families goes way back and it’s something I would love to share with you!  It’s a raw story… one that involves a lot of who we are as a family… us Tuckers and I will have to divide it up into a short series here on the blog.

I think the best way for me to start though, is for me to introduce you to my Lifetime Experience!

Last year, I met with Katelyn James for a re-cap mentoring session.  We spoke a lot about my love and passion for shooting only children and families.  We talked about how I really wanted to create an experience that detailed how important I felt these sessions were.

You see… weddings are extremely important and it shows:  pinterest boards and guides and magazines and industries all developed just for weddings!  Brides and grooms and their families invest in so much for their one special day!  And it is… an extremely special day that you will remember for the rest of your life!

Something changes though when you become a mom and a dad!  Your life shifts and what was super important also shifts!  It’s miraculous!

So I feel that we need to have that same kind of value that we have for weddings placed on our family images!  These family images and sessions also deserved an experience!

After all… these moments we have with our children race by as quick as the beats of our own hearts!

This is where Katelyn encouraged me to create the Lifetime Experience!    She helped me define my passion so that I could put it into writing for my clients to see and hear in my Portrait Guide.

The Lifetime Experience isn’t just about showing up to sessions and providing my clients with beautiful images and a good time!

The Lifetime Experience is about creating a relationship with my clients that will actually last a lifetime!

Once you have a relationship that is consistant and honest… you can be comfortable and relaxed!  You can feel free to be yourself!  That’s when (as Linc would say) the magic happens.  Together, we capture images that absolutely reflect who you are from the inside out.

The Lifetime Experience shared in the guide above is about sharing our stories together and in that guide, I share my story as a first time mom with my amazing clients.

My story isn’t all beautifully clean and sunny!  It’s raw and rough and because of that it has its very own beauty!

If you will let me, I’d like to share that story with you here in this series!

You’ll just have to wait until next Wednesday to start.
