For my family portrait sessions, I like to capture a variety of different kinds of pictures. I make sure to capture the whole family together but also different pairings of siblings with and without the parents. These are really playful sessions that will not only provide you with some wall-worthy pictures, but also with a lifelong memory that is of an incredible value for your children and more generations to come.
Too often, we take our families pictures but something is always missing - it’s you! Always being behind the camera and capturing your journey, it’s time to be part of the picture yourself! Just imagine your children 50 years from now, going through their family images wondering where that one person missing was that whole time? Behind the camera.... Let’s not let that happen and give your children the memories they’re looking forward to remenice years from now.
I also want to make sure that I get some amazing photographs of the parents together. It's nice to have a picture of just you and your spouse, so it's important to me that I include several of those pictures in all of my family sessions. I personally would always recommend an outdoor location for a family session to give the children some room to play and to be able to work with different backdrops.
No matter how small or large your family is, bring them all along! If the location allows for it, pets are also more than welcome to join us as they are part of our families as well. Let’s capture these precious memories before time keeps flying by!
