My family is not the best when it comes to taking pictures. my kids are all over the place,my husband is rolling his eyes, & I get upset that my hair & make-up are getting ruined in the process. I wanted to be able to cherish the present & also remember it in the future, but also wanted something real & authentic; photos that truly captured my family as we are- no posing, no prompting, no bribery. i told halli a little bit about my family & that she had her work cut out for her. Together, we decided on a perfect location that not only had meaning for my family, but was also very practical. HALLI IMMEDIATELY BEGAN SHOOTING & CAPTURING JUST RAW & CANDID IMAGES. MY KIDS WERE LAUGHING & PLAYING WHILE MY HUSBAND & I STOOD BACK WATCHING. SHE WALKED AROUND US, RAN BEHIND US, I THINK SHE EVEN CLIMBED A TREE & STOOD IN THE RIVER! EVERY ONCE A WHILE, SHE GAVE US SOME CREATIVE DIRECTION THAT IN THE END PROVED HER TALENT & NATURAL EYE IN THIS FIELD. SHE MADE OUR SHOOT LOOK EFFORTLESS & FUN. SHE WAS SMILING & GIGGLING RIGHT ALONG WITH MY KIDS. THE FINAL PRODUCT BROUGHT US TO TEARS. I WAS IN AWE THAT WE NOT ONLY MADE IT THROUGH A PHOTO SHOOT WITHOUT FIGHTING, TEARS, & CONSTANT BRIBERY, BUT THAT HALLI TRULY CAPTURED REAL HAPPINESS & JOY THAT I KNEW MY FAMILY POSSESSED. OUR FAMILY PHOTOS TURNED OUT SO BEAUTIFUL & I KNOW THAT NO ONE ELSE WOULD HAVE BEEN ABLE TO CAPTURE US AS HALLI DI. HALLI HAS A NATURAL TALENT IN PHOTOGRAPHY LIKE NONE OTHER.
