Family session can be done all year round. It’s important to remember your family in all its growing stages.
The way your session goes with me, is very fun, relaxed. I don’t think anyone knows really ‘how to pose’. I put you where the light is good, in the perfect ‘pose’ and then we go from there. The more relaxed you are, the better your photos become. I only direct you, and you create the magic. It’s really about letting the kids be themselves and capturing their personality in that stage of their life and yours. Their wild sides, crazy smiles, and goofy faces! My job is making sure your session flows smooth, no matter if your kids ‘aren’t good at photos’. I act crazy, and goofy with them, which always relaxes them, since I become their best friend right away! Yelling at your kids to smile, doesn’t ever work. Its my job to make you, and your kids relaxed, happy, feel connected to each other. My prompts only guide you in the right direction. If you’re coming to me, for that perfect pose every time, that’s not my style. Of course, we all want the one with everyone looking at smiling’, but your session is more then just one good photo. Its about capturing your families interaction with each other. I’m sure if you’ve ever done a session with me, you know exactly what I’m talking about. You might leave your session, feeling a little worried. “did she get something good enough’? And then, you see all the photos, and it makes you want another session, because you fall in love with every photo. Because the perfect posed smiling photo, you realize isn’t as good, as all the other ones of your kids being themselves, and you interacting with them, making them laugh. That’s what photos are about. Looking back at them, remember how you all felt about each other.
I have shot hundreds of family sessions, kids of all ages and personalities, and no 2 sessions are alike, because no family is exactly alike, and I love every second of that.
