When the weather is in our favour I love to shoot outside and early evening is ideal, makes for those beautiful dreamy photos. During a session it will mostly be filled with laughing, snuggling and running around. I will ensure that you get the posed family shots too but the emphasis will be placed on getting those shots that reflect your family; those genuine in the moment smiles.
Its always great to have something planned that you enjoy doing as a family – bring ice-cream in a cooler for a treat at the end, music for impromptu dance parties, books to read and have a cuddle, bubble machines etc. Anything that lets your family be authentic. Sessions are fast paced but there is always time to stop and take a break.
When choosing a location this can be anywhere you like! A field, a park, your own backyard, downtown with buildings as backdrops. Shoots can also be done in studio or in your home. Using your home is unique because your personal space becomes part of your photos. I predominantly use the studio set up for mini sessions, like a cake smash or birthday celebration.
