Besides the Smith’s being some pretty cool in-laws, they are also pretty cool to hang out with and take pictures of. I loved their fun colors and enthusiasm for family pictures. I especially love the totally serious one, Brooklyn’s idea of course, with little Arlo screaming his head off. You guys are fabulous!
Location is such an important part of any photo shoot. It’s important that the location you choose represent who you are and lets the personalities of your family shine. There are so many great location options: downtown, grunge, urban, modern, rural, nature, casual, old fashioned, rustic, and the list goes on. You can get great photos at any location, what’s more important though is that you feel the location reflects who you are. Once you have your location, thinking about clothing options and accessories that go along with that background really give your photos a cohesive look. Another option is to do something totally different, such as formal wear in a forest, or a sundress in a grungy alley, I’ve had a great dressed family in a junkyard too. Those are always fun and give a little something creative to the shoot. So many options! Just contact me to come up with some great ideas for you and your family!
