Family Photos

The one thing about being a photographer is having photographer friends who will take photos for you! My sweet friend Elizabeth took photos for us yesterday & I couldn’t be more excited about the way they came out! (Elizabeth is an amazing boudoir photographer-you can find her work here.) I love every bit of them! She let me edit them to my style because we’re both a little picky in that area.

Tips on how to get your kids to behave during the session: play with them, keep it moving! While yes your child wants to run & play in the water or play on those swings, keeping them busy with you will keep them focused on what you’re doing. Keep it moving-constant movement helps for them not to be able to run off & be somewhere else.

But how did you get everyone to smile- parents always look at the camera & through your teeth sing different songs. Trust me, this is what I tell my clients all the time. Its parents number one concern the their kiddos aren’t going to do what they want & Ive never had a client come back & say um we didn’t get anything because we surely got a ton of stuff! Dance & sway, be relaxed & enjoy every minute of those pictures because if you don’t it’ll definitely show.

And there’s your daily photography tip! Please enjoy some photos of my boys & I!
