An At Home Lifestyle
Family Photography Session
These expectant moms, their daughter, and dog were selected to be photographed as a model family by one of my personal branding photography clients who needed images of a loving, connected family for her website. Based on the images the branding client needed, I treated this as a very casual lifestyle family photography session at the family’s home. This gave the client a variety of authentic family images to use on her website and social media platforms.
When we scheduled this session, we were in the midst of a long stretch of gloomy spring days. Anticipating that we would need to photograph inside, we chose a late afternoon time which would allow the most light inside their home. Of course, living in Portland, we all know the weather is anything but predictable. It worked in our favor this time, as on the day of the session, we were blessed with a bright, and sunny day!
I would not usually schedule outdoor photos for this time due to the harshness of light, but we made the most of it, capturing some pictures in the shade on their sweet porch swing before taking a short stroll to find some open shade under the trees at the local city park. This entire family was such a joy to work with. As with most my family sessions, I could not resist capturing some quiet moments of just the moms as they anticipated the arrival of their new baby. The new addition to their family is going to be one very, very lucky little boy or girl!

In later emails, I will also share things to consider when choosing a location (and my favorite choices as a Portland family photographer), how to integrate props, and how to prepare your family for their session (including my approach to working with your kids!) for a relaxed family portrait experience.
