Family photoshoots are ones I don’t do too often. I photograph families during maternity and newborn sessions but I love it when my past clients come back for updated family portraits. Whenever a new season starts, I find myself going through the sessions from the previous seasons. When I came across these fall family photoshoots, I knew I had to share them with you. Both sessions were at one of my all time favorite locations and we were lucky enough to have the amazing fall colored trees surrounding us both times.
Family Photoshoots in Action
It doesn’t matter if you have one child, or 6 children, I will always recommend some fun action shots. I love those genuine facial expressions and I want to capture your family at play. I love those posed shots and try to get those out of the way first, but it’s only in those fun and smile-filled moments, I get to capture the real laughs and the real ‘you’.
Family Photoshoots With Everyone
Of course at a family photoshoot, we will take more than enough pictures of everyone together, but I also suggest taking pictures separately with the kids and parents. The bond between a parent and their child is unique to everyone and I love to capture it. Not only that, but getting pictures of your kids on their own or together is something you will always look back on and cherish.
Pictures of Mom and Dad
Your family started with the two of you and just like it’s important to capture your family growing up, it’s just as important to capture the two of you. Your love is what builds, sustains, and keeps your family strong. Don’t forget to take a few minutes to celebrate your relationship.
