Oh, family sessions… I love them! Jonah and Ashton were not at all afraid to let their character out, and, well, you’ll see… They are hilarious!!
I believe that one of the major keys to a successful family shoot is to allow the kids to be themselves. Seriously, it is so much effort to get everyone ready for the session, and kids can totally sense the pressure to be on their best behavior, a pressure that often backfires. Often, as was the case with these two boys, we’ll trade off funny photos for nice ones… and they forget about the pressure and ended up having a great time! When they have fun, we all enjoy ourselves!! The bonus is that I get to photograph them being their real selves, and I always love those photos!
So often the parents haven’t had more than snapshot or selfie photos together in way too long, so a mini portrait session with just the two of them is always part of the experience.
Thanks for asking me to capture your family Erica + Wes, it was an awesome evening!!
