I am a big advocate for bridal boudoir. But, it might not be for the reason you’re thinking. While I think it can be a lovely gift for a spouse, it’s more about what it signifies for the one having their photographs taken. When I get an inquiry for bridal boudoir I want to make sure that we talk and are after the same ultimate goal. There is beauty in being strong and independent. That doesn’t have to change with marriage. It’s incredible to watch the session unfold. For those that thought it was going to be a gift for someone else, what they start to realize is that the ultimate receiver is themselves.

Mommy and Me Session | Jupiter Island Family Photographer | Shannon Griffin Photography

I adore family sessions, but there is something so special about a session with a mom and her first born. Each child is unique and forms there own bond, but there is something about the newness of it all. This is mom’s first experience with her own child. This is a time where they are both learning together and growing. I’ve done a handful of sessions with just mom and her first born and they have become some of my favorites.

Is an Intimate Wedding Right for You | West Palm Beach Wedding Photographer | Shannon Griffin Photography

When I began photographing weddings 12 years ago they were completely different. Wedding magazines had been around for a while, but wedding blogs were a newer thing. Pinterest wasn’t a thing. You would cut out photographs and tips from magazines and put them into a folder. Now, we have the internet and social media at our fingertips. This is a wonderful thing, but it can also be overwhelming and make some couples obsessive. Thanks to wedding blogs, it almost feels like a competition to have your wedding featured or to have the prettiest details. While details are an important part of your wedding day, they are certainly not what it’s about or what your guests will take away from the day.

Extended Family Photography and It's Importance | Admirals Cove Jupiter Family Photographer | Shannon Griffin Photography

Stop for a second and think about the last time you had your extended family all in one place. Think about the last time you had even your nuclear family in one place. As we get older it becomes harder to stop what we’re doing to visit our parents, children, or grandchildren. I never get to see my sister and niece as much as I would like. Every second that I get with my family is something that I truly cherish, especially after losing my grandfather and grandmother within a few months of each other. Life is so incredibly short and memories tend to fade the older we get. This is a huge reason why I photograph families. I have a deep love for documenting the relationships between them. Most families don’t get together unless there is a wedding or funeral; it’s the sad truth. That’s why I get so excited when people contact me about doing extended family sessions. Involving the grandparents makes for such a special session. It freezes time for everyone involved. It allows them to have memories long after their parents and grandparents are gone. When I was a little girl I don’t remember being in photos with my granddad. But, looking back at those photographs now I’m so lucky to have those. I might not remember the event or circumstance, but I remember how my granddad always made me feel. I couldn’t imagine not having those photographs.
