There’s something to be said for a nice family picture where everyone is looking at the camera and smiling. I love that! I lean towards more casual posing, especially with young kids …. and this family’s holiday door – AND THE STEPS OF THEIR HOUSE, OMG!, I’M IN LOVE – were a perfect backdrop.
But after we get that shot, I gotta be honest, I love stuff like THIS just as much. Maybe more. These images are the ones I think your family will cherish forever, that the kids will have fond memories of when they look back as adults. The fun, the laughter, the silliness, that’s what family should be about, and I love that so many of my clients enjoy the ‘outtakes’ as much as the ‘regular’ pictures.
So we all know what Austin wants for Christmas, right? 😀
The kids chose this spot in their backyard, by a bougainvillea, for individual pictures. Austin, who is developing quite an eye for composition and commented how nicely the flowers went with their clothing, has a future as my assistant!
