I get all kinds of families who come to me for their family portraits, and no two families are alike. Some want classic and traditional portraits for the mantle, formal poses and elegant styling. Some want documentary style lifestyle photos of their families at home, to personalize their family sessions and to remember where they were at this time in their lives, as moments are so fleeting. And some, like this family, want to have fun and relaxed candid portraits of their family, mixed with the traditional, to celebrate the relationships we share and the fun we have as a family when we are together.
We will include some traditional family portraits, for sharing with family members (remember — Grandma always really loves that one posed photo of her beloved family together, happy and smiling at the camera, and she’ll be expecting her print!) but then we can skip around, laugh and run, and really get down to the serious business of enjoying this day together making beautiful family portraits that really capture YOU as you truly are. For this family, that was bright, happy and lots of smiles!
These types of family sessions make great collages and albums, since we shoot for family combinations having fun, dancing, snuggling, playing games and just enjoying being together.
We’ll take each child separately, and capture some beautiful portraits that match each child’s personality. I love to include photos that tell the entire story of each child, from the fun and perky shots to the serene and lovely – the girl with her eyes closed, dreaming. The sweet boy who offers me a flower. The little one with her bright eyes and big smile.
And of course, photos of all the kids together. Look, ma! No fighting!
I think the kids are trying to tell their parents something here! LOL!
I had SUCH a great time with this family. Lots of laughs and everyone had fun being together.
Are you in The Woodlands, Spring, Conroe, Oak Ridge North, or Montgomery County and looking for a family photographer?
