Families and Kids
As a photographer I have a heart for people and love all of the sessions I shoot but if there’s one thing that sticks out, it’s families and kids. I love to capture the connection between parents and their mini-me’s. It is my goal to keep sessions light-hearted and fun so everyone has a good time (lets be honest – most dads hate having their photos taken, so when I hear a dad actually ENJOYED a session with me – I’m happy). I work with each client to make their session special and plan all my locations ahead of time with them. If you have a special place that means something to you – lets use it! I am always up for exploring a new place and making your session unique.
If your session is a family session I always do photos of the entire family, as well as the kids and then I like to break it down and do photo’s of each kid individually. Then, I always like to sneak the parents away for just some photo’s of just the 2 of them. I feel like parents often get missed during sessions, so I make it a priority to get a few shots just of them.
My style for these sessions is a good mixture of both posed and candid shots. Getting little kids to warm up to the camera can be hard at times – so I always like to play games with them or have the parents included in the beginning while they warm up to me! Usually, by the end, I’m best friends with them.
I also enjoy capturing the furry members of your family. If you have a dog (or dogs) that you want included, bring them with and I will make sure to capture their interaction with your family and get them to smile for pictures!
When it comes to clothing – I’m more than willing to help you out. I LOVE to offer styling tips and I have an entire Pinterest board made up of different clothing inspirations! I want everyone to coordinate colors, but not be too matchy-matchy (everyone in khaki’s and black shirts – that was 10 years ago!). I always suggest picking out a color scheme and sticking to a few color options! Mix in some patterns and don’t forget to accessorize! If it’s a winter session, make sure to dress warm but have fun with your hats/coats/mittens. If it’s 20 degrees outside and you come wearing clothes short sleeves, no one will be happy! Same thing if it’s 90 degrees and you come wearing a sweater. Dress for the season and your shoot will be a success!
