Life-style session as a present
For my 40th birthday, my friends clubbed together to buy me a life-style photo session with Ralitza. I’ve always wanted to have framed photographs of my family in the hallway (like more organised people do !), but like many other things, it was put on the long finger – until January 19th, when Ralitza came to our house.
I picked a ‘journée pédagogique’ knowing that the girls were off school, and although I nearly had hysterics when Ralitza suggested I ‘declutter’ as much as possible in the house, we had a fabulously exhausting afternoon.
I have never been one for posed shots (I don’t like the way I smile), so I was a bit apprehensive about how the session would work. I wanted the focus to be on the girls – not me. I don’t know how, but through a combination of calm, organised chaos, and general happiness, Ralitza took charge and took the most beautiful shots (often without us even noticing). She captured the personalities of each of my children individually, and of all of us as a family unit. And I even liked the pictures of me!
The result is a precious album capturing a moment in time that we can hold and flick through, and my hallway family pictures that I can admire everyday. The hour spent decluttering was definitely worth it – I’m delighted!
