    2011 Year in Review {Family Sessions}

    Friday, February 3rd, 2012

    WOW what a year! I knew I was busy and covered a lot of territory across the metro but I guess I didn’t realize the full scope of that ‘busy-ness’ until I started to pull this highlight segment together.  Look at how much fun I had!  I am so blessed to have a job that allows me to continually meet and spend time with so many wonderful people and families, many of them year after year. 

    Over the past 4 years of  Teresa Hermes Photography  I have come to realize that documenting a family with my camera is by far, my favorite type of session.  And by family I mean 2 or more people :)   Of course I love photographing individual babies/children.  And yes! I love photographing grownups too as you’ve maybe seen a lot more headshot sessions popping up on my facebook page this past year.  I love the variety I am able to achieve in these sessions because an adult is a bit more reliable in following cues and directions than a 2 year old is :) It’s simply a different kind of energy that goes into these sessions.  So I do love it all and how no two sessions are ever the same – I thrive on that! But I find I am most fulfilled and enriched by documenting a family.   I think much of this stems from watching my own children grow up much faster than I ever believed they would – and how much I cherish every image I have of our interactions together – playing, hugging, kissing.  It takes those special moments and freezes them on paper… forever. I am continually looking at our photos and marveling at how quickly they went from  baby to toddler to school aged siblings in no time at all.  This is what makes me so passionate about capturing your interactions – the silly smiles and laughs, the tender hugs and kisses, and everything in between.

     This post is just a quick snapshot of it all! I wish I could include all my sessions but the post was growing too long as it was. You can view most all of my sessions on my facebook page http://www.facebook.com/#!/teresahermesphotography if you wanted to see something that is missing.

    Thank you again to all my friends and clients who allow me to do what I love doing! xo

    I had the pleasure of meeting up with this beautiful family for an evening boat ride on the calm or gorgeous, Lake Minnetonka. What a perfect September evening it was – love these guys!
