Why Plan Your Family Photoshoot With Intention?
A family portrait is more than just another picture. A family photoshoot is a time to celebrate your unique family’s story at this moment in time and turn it into family art that will be treasured for generations.
As a family photographer, I believe…
You are not the same as the three families before you in line at the same location being photographed with the same props. Your family, and everyone in it, is unique and wonderful in their own way!
When preparing for a family portrait session, my first priority is to learn about your family and what you are hoping to capture during our time together. Then, we will work together to plan the little details that will all come together to tell the story of your family.
Why spend all this time planning?
Your ultimate enjoyment of your family portraits is a combination of many factors. Choice of location, what you wear, the quality of the final product, as well as your overall experience all contribute to your enjoyment and emotional connection to your family’s art. As a family photographer, I take all these factors into consideration as I help you plan your family photoshoot, because I am passionate about helping you get family portraits that you love and that convey your unique connection.
Often an underestimated factor, your own experience and mood leading up to the photoshoot have a huge impact of your emotional connection to your final images. When you see your family’s portrait hanging on the wall, do you want to have memories of the stress of last minute clothing changes, and frustration of trying to get your children to smile at the camera? Or would you prefer to recall the fun you had playing and laughing together as your photographer gently guided your family to relax and be themselves, revealing each individual’s essence and leading to moments of connection captured in a natural way? My ultimate goal is for you to arrive at your photoshoot with all your questions answered and feeling relaxed and confident that your portraits will be a true representation of your family. By preparing with intention, the portrait session can be a fun family activity and not a stressful chore!
Working together, we will start with the end in mind to create the best family portrait experience possible!
