This photo session was captured just before 4th of July in a park with a few festive decorations. This was my second session with this loving family and my first time meeting their daughter. It was late afternoon and the lighting was beautiful. We wandered around the park mixing portraits with play. I like to change it up throughout the session to capture a variety but also to keep kids having fun throughout. Here are my favorite photos from the day!
How to dress for a family photography session is very personal and should speak to your unique style. While it is nice to coordinate and not clash, I do not like to dictate what to wear. Sometimes families dress in casual attire, while other times they get dressed up. These photos are ultimately yours to treasure, so I want my clients to dress as a reflection of who they are and what they love. Clothing can give confidence, comfort and style, all wonderful additions to family pictures. This family dressed so beautifully for their photo shoot, I absolutely love the color palate and sharp style they conveyed. I love even more that they were open to running around and playing even when dressed to the nines. To me, that is something special. Here are the magical photos we captured in this dressy yet playful session!
