The best child and family photos of 2014

This is my favorite post of the entire year! The images I post below have been chosen very subjectively. Basically, they are the images that I blogged this year that somehow imprinted themselves on my mind. The ones I thought about, the ones I found myself trying to copy, the ones that stayed with me long after the blog post. You will see some familiar names and some brand new names. And mostly you will see some creative and amazing family and child photography.

Happy New Year!!

It was an amazing year here at Let the Kids. Lots of growth, lots of new faces, and the most beautiful photos.

February 21, 2015

Portland, Oregon

Posy’s spiel:  TOGETHER we will cover…

  • my step-by-step process for booking and retaining the right clients for YOU (from the first contact to sending the package out the door, and everything in between)
  • how I prepare myself and my clients for an ideal and authentic session for us BOTH (how this process helps to avoid the “worst case scenarios,” and how to navigate them when they inevitably occur anyway!)
  • lunch (made with love by ME)
  • live lifestyle session with a real FAMILY (I’ll direct/manage/shoot, you’ll watch, learn, ask questions)
  • editing: my approach, and a quick edit of the photos from OUR session
  • coffee, tea, cookies, and most importantly US reviewing it all, hashing it out, laughing, crying, connecting, and depending how late we go, maybe popping a bottle of champagne and celebrating new FRIENDSHIPS
  • $450 (but as a special birthday month special I’ll do it for $350 if you pay the fee by 12/31!)
