I remember one of the first couples I directed to connect in a session with me. I said something like “Ok, now go ahead and slowly lean in to touch her face….” The client, wanting to do as I say, slowly leaned into his wife. He ever so slowly picked his hand up from his lap with his pointer finger sticking straight up and placed it on her….cheek. . . . I nearly peed my pants. She burst into laughter and he awkwardly did as well. Man did he take direction well. He had one job that day, she said, to listen to what the photographer said and just go with it. Well, friends, task completed. . . . I had this idea that they would look into each others eyes, smile and then he would lean in slowly — pause once more and then take his hands to her face while kissing her sweet lips as if it was the last kiss he would ever give to her. . . . Instead I got pointer finger to cheek shot. That was 4 years ago. Some clients still need direction and others just don’t. Thankfully I have learned a thing or two about direction and gaging how clients engage. If you’re the pointer finger to cheek kinda couple, I’m game to capture you. If you’re the ‘I don’t need direction, we are just naturally connecting all the time’ kinda couple, I’m down for that as well. Each of you connects differently so while we’re getting to know each other through your booking questionnaire why don’t you let me know how you connect with your partner. What makes you pee your pants in hysterics together or squirm with awkwardness? What makes you want to kiss? Is it the funny side or the soft and sweet side of your partner? It’s all good however you are with your loved one. If you hired me to capture your family connecting, I’m looking forward to being the one to capture it all for you.
