When I do large families I always come home and brew over all the poses I could have tried. Things move so fast, or should I say, I move so fast on photo sessions I sometimes wonder how I capture anything at all! This session I brought along my husband and daughter (11yrs.) Tommy is so great at wrangling kiddos, and switching lenses for me. My daughter Kya is learning how to use a reflector at the moment.
On each family session, I always try to photograph each person by themselves. Children can be a challenge, but I think adults are more difficult..most of us don’t like to be photographed (myself included) – I used to see people with a camera and couldn’t relax really, pretty much worried they would try to sneak a photo and my mouth would quiver, or that I’d look silly. So I understand when others get nervous. But it is definitely a breath of fresh air when moms as beautiful as this one smile effortlessly and have a quiet confidence that we can all only dream of.
