This was my second family shoot. I used many of the things I learned on my first shoot to better the second one. I SLOWED down and made a mental note to think before I act. I tend to be a fast talker and doer. I can slow down if I keep reminding myself.
We had some fun!
I tried to mix it up between poses and candids.
I saw a shadow picture like this on Pinterest and wanted to try it out with this family.
We even got a little goofy!
This mother/son shot just melts my heart.
The adorable little girl wanted to pretend she was holding up the sun. I tried to make it work for her, but it was just too early in the day for this to happen. I thought it was great that she asked me to take a picture of what she thought would be cool! There is a pretty little natural sun flare in the shot though.
It’s no wonder that these two people have children with the most beautiful eyes!
It’s interesting how everyone’s hands are clenched like this. I certainly didn’t say, “clench your fists.” Perhaps this was in anticipation of their near-future jumping.
If the family was a band, I think this would be an excellent cover for their CD.
P.S. I hope you scrolled all the way to the bottom because I want you to enter the awesome giveaway I have going on now through January 1, 2012!
