DARCY TROUTMAN PHOTOGRAPHY - NORTHERN VA/WASHINGTON DC/ARLINGTON/ALEXANDRIA FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER
When I photograph people my goal is to stay as true to the moment as possible. Hopefully, when you look at my photos years down the road, you won't just say "that's how we looked", instead you'll say "that's how we were".
I want you to remember the sound of your child's laugh or how fast he/she ran. I want you to remember details of your life together - that you like to play basketball or tell dumb jokes or that you all love Harry Potter.
I love photographing - moms combing hair, dads helping with shoelaces, parents filling sippy cups, children's messy rooms, siblings having pillow fights (or, really, any sort of fight), dinosaurs attacking Barbie (and Barbie winning!). Because this is real life.
So whether you want photos in your Sunday best or in PJs at home - just remember to have fun - play with your kids, laugh, hug, snuggle, attack.
