Last Saturday was a glorious fall day that remind me how much I love the Pacific Northwest. It started out overcast, but not cold. One of those perfect fall mornings. I met this family at one of their favorite local beaches for some photos.
Thanks for the great session!!
I get asked this SO often! And it makes a big difference if you can follow even a few simple guidelines. First is that simple is best! Cartoon characters, logos, graphics….they all compete with your child’s face (or yours)! That being said, small kids can get away with some fun patterns. Stripes and polka dots are cute. I do think they work best away from the face.
When you are coming in with your family for a family shot, try to pick clothes that are complimentary, but they don’t need to be matching. If they are all the same value, then that will look best. I recommend this trick to see how your outfits will look as a group:
lay out the outfits on the bed next to each other. Turn around and walk away from them, then turn back around and look at the bed. Does one outfit or piece grab your attention a lot? If so, that is what will stand out in the photo. If you see one group, rather than one part first, then you’ve probably chosen well! And you can always bring several things to your session and I can help choose! I love doing that!
Here is one idea of some outfits that work well together. Not everyone has to be “matchy-matchy” to look good in a family portrait!
Had another session with another family with two boys! Lots of boys this month! They were so sweet….it’s so nice to see big brothers in action! Here are a few favorites from today!
During the session, a young, injured bird came right up. It wasn’t afraid of us at all, and seemed to want help. It even ate out of Dad’s hand! Hopefully it made it safely.
Thanks, Norah and Frank for letting me photograph your beautiful family! And for the jicama salad recipe! I can’t wait to make it!
A friend of mine was nice enough to volunteer her and her grown daughters when I asked for mother/daughter models. They were a lot of fun! Mo, you raised some beautiful daughters!
And while the family was all together we took the opportunity to get some shots of her daughters with their beautiful kids! I loved seeing this family all together, laughing, enjoying each others company…
We finally had a nice day, weatherwise, and so a morning park session with these two sisters was dry thankfully! A little windy and chilly though! This was a very fun session…these two kept me laughing!
Here are a few more of my favorites. I do wish their other sister could have joined us…maybe next time!
