I am so so excited to share this family’s session with you! Who would have known apples could make such cute props?! We had a fantastic time checking out this location, playing together, and getting some snuggles in. I think the kiddos favorite part was storytime. This session is even more special for me because mom is also a photographer. It is always such an honor when another photographer chooses me to take their family portraits. After their session mom and I were talking and she said something that I would love to share here. We were talking about how connected her family is, and how that connection shines in the pictures. She felt that since her expectations were so open, as in she didn’t expect that “perfect family portrait” with everyone looking at the camera and smiling, this allowed her and her family to relax, be themselves, and show the love. This is such a great tip for all families when they come for a portrait session. If you take the pressure of expectations away, you open yourself up to let your family shine!! And here are the results you too can have when you follow her advice, well worth it 🙂
