So things have been so crazy here, I’m just getting to blogging a session a week late!
So what I loved about this session is how real it was. We have multiple generations getting their portrait taken, four kids to try and get to smile at the same time, aunts and uncles and cousins and grandparents…it definitely kept me on my toes! When one of the moms said, “just smile, I’ll give you a dollar, I’ll give you ten dollars, I’ll give you a PONY, please smile!” It just summed up the family portrait experience perfectly. We had fun, let the kids play and got some great images of this awesome family.
We have our sessions last an hour because it gives us time to shoot documentary family portraits as well as posed ones. Showing kids in their real environment, with their real personalities and experiences is priceless. The outtakes are the ones they will remember into adulthood. Maybe the cousins will recreate this someday!
Someone slipped the kids their dollar for smiles…
…while the adults show us how its done.
Daddy said there was an alligator down there!
