I SPY: Rachel Hudgins

Oct 9, 2014

What's one of the best things gearing up to the end of year holidays?  For me - receiving HOLIDAY CARDS in my mailbox.  They make me SMILE.  Since I live far away from family and many friends I don't see them and their brood often.  Receiving their holiday card with photos of their family is a nice way to catch up on how everyone looks, see any new additions to the family, new hair styles, and how big the kiddos have grown.

I also take pride in my holiday cards, and do it religiously.  I like funny and candid shots more then posed.  It brings out the true colors of my children!  Thats also because my kids are goof balls, wild and can't sit still for portraits.  So I don't expect too much of them!  Candid pics also give natural expressions instead of the forced, fake, I'm going to crap in my pants smile!  My oldest is at that near tween age where he feels awkward posing for a photo, and can put on a very fake CHEESE.  You know how that is?

For the last few years I've had RACHEL HUDGINS an amazing photographer capture my kids.  I like her approach.  She's quick, knows how to deal with kids, patient and creative.  All the things I am not when trying to photograph my boys!

Here are the images I've used for my previous holiday cards.  I tend to like a photo of my boys together, and then a photo of each individual kid to let them shine.

If your more inclined towards the posed portrait she can do that too.  This is a recent photo she took of me and my boys.  I was amazed that she got each one of us looking great…even Eddy the dog looks happy!  How did she do that?  Her secret!

Don't you LOVE Rachel's photography style?  There's still time to squeeze in a session before the holidays.  Otherwise save a photo shoot close to your child's birthday to make it memorable.  Call her!
