When getting ready for a family photo session, parents often worry about how things will turn out with toddlers, those tiny humans who absolutely cannot stand still. No need to fret - remember, we’re not creating “everybody sit still and say cheese” photos here; we’re making “this is the crazy and pretty incredible chaos of your life right now” photos. Since I’m pretty good at chasing kids, and I also keep a few extra tricks up my sleeve if we need to convince them slow down every once in a while, there’s nothing at all for you to get anxious over - I promise.
You guys, I don't even know where to start explaining how amazing Sarah Alderman is. If you're local to Southeast PA, you've probably already heard of her via her photography business or documentary project (which just released its trailer! go watch it!).
As photographers, we can sometimes be a little protective of our businesses in a way that holds us back from opening up and helping others working in the same sphere--it's understandable when you're working in a saturated market like this one. On the other hand, this field is also home to some really amazing human beings who open right up with a smile, offering support and encouragement the first time you meet. That's exactly the type of person Sarah is.
In addition to running a successful photography business (which boasts an entire TEAM of talented associates), she just launched a photobooth service, is creating an incredible documentary celebrating the unsung beauty of Coatesville, and she also happens to be a single mom to those lovely twin girls up there. She's teaching them firsthand what it looks like to be strong, ambitious and independent, but also that having your heart in the right place is just as important as working hard. Those girls are lucky to be growing up Alderman, and I myself feel pretty lucky to have crossed paths with Sarah.
