Family Photos Should be Fun!
My goal with your family session is to capture those formal portraits, BUT be ready for interaction, laughing and capturing your true smiles, giggles and emotions! We will start with some ice breakers, to get you and your loved ones comfortable in front of the camera and then go from there. I love incorporating an activity as well, whether you want to fly kites, picnic, grab ice cream cones or throw the football around in your favorite team's jerseys, I want to capture your family doing what you love to do! We will chat about this during our quick consultation!
Activities You May Love to Have Photographed:
Fall: The Pumpkin Patch, Hot Cider, Hay Bales, Pumpkins, Hay Rides, Face Painting, Football and more. Plus think of all of those accessories and layers you get to wear! CUTE! Fall books up by far the fastest, so dont wait if you have a schedule to work around! This is my absolute favorite season for family photos!
Winter: Family Ski trip, Hot Cocoa, Snowmen, Sledding, Snowball fights... It's chilly out there but Gorgeous!
Spring/Summer: Rainy days and umbrellas, The Fair, Blooming Flowers, Beaches, Evergreens and the Woodsy settings. Truly this season is endless in possibilities!
What Should We Wear?
This is by far the most asked question, and If you are anything like me you could use help in this area. I've put together some Pinterest Boards I will provide you during our consultation. These consist of the best color schemes, the Do's and Do Nots in apparel, layering and accessories and more. You should have a great idea after viewing these boards of where to head. I'm here the whole way! Send me photos of your family attire, your conflict between outfit one or outfit two, I'll lend you a hand!
How Can We Help Make Sure Our Little Ones Cooperate?
Children...they are very unpredictable, Ha ha, Don't worry I have worked with all ages for years and LOVE the kiddos! Plan on the first 15 minutes or so being warm up time. Rarely can you take children out of their seats into a new area and start shooting. So this is where some interacting comes to play. Bring snacks and drinks! Nothing is worse than a hangry toddler am I right? Bring along a favorite toy or book anything I can use to spark their interest if we need it!
