You're Gonna Want To Remember This

Hey fabulous moms! Today, let's dive into the world of outdoor family photography – no fluff, just real talk about creating magical memories with a photo session. Grab a cup of your favorite beverage, and let's explore how my sessions are designed to be candid, unposed, and all about capturing genuine moments with your amazing family.

Setting the Scene:

Outdoor family sessions are like a day of play, laughter, and connection.

Picture this: your family, surrounded by nature's beauty, engaging in genuine interactions and creating memories that will last a lifetime. That's the heart of what we'll be capturing together. Forget stiff poses and forced smiles. My goal is to capture the unposed beauty of your family – those spontaneous hugs, playful giggles, and the genuine love that unfolds when you're simply being yourselves. These are the moments that make your family truly unique.

Candid Bliss:

My approach to family sessions?

Candid, all the way. No forced smiles, no awkward poses – just your family being authentically you. Sure, we'll do the standard "Christmas Card Photo" where everyone is smiling and looking at the camera. But most of the session will be prompts to have you and your family do something that creates beautiful movement, prevents static images, and gets you all interacting and smiling genuinely. I believe the best moments happen when everyone is relaxed and having fun, so expect lots of genuine smiles and natural interactions.

Meeting Kids Where They Are:

I get it, kids have their own agenda.

That's why my sessions are designed to meet them exactly where they are. Whether they're full of energy, a bit shy, or somewhere in between, we'll roll with it. It's all about letting their personalities shine, capturing the essence of who they are in this moment. If they need to run around for a few minutes to get it out, that's ok! We can get sets of you and your partner, or another child. They will come around, and the last thing we want to do is force it on them.

Tips for a Smooth Session:

I. Choose the Right Time:

Opt for early mornings or late afternoons when the natural light is soft and golden, creating a warm, flattering glow.

II. Dress Comfortably:

Coordinating outfits is encouraged, but the key is comfort. When everyone feels at ease, genuine moments flow effortlessly.

III. Embrace Spontaneity:

Some of the best shots happen in between poses. Embrace the spontaneity, let the kids lead the way, and enjoy the unexpected moments.

IV. Relax and Have Fun:

The most important tip? Relax and have fun! Family sessions are about creating memories together, so enjoy the process and let the magic happen.
