Family Portraits Don't Have To Be So Serious

I love seeing all these big families together… it makes me so incredibly happy to know that they all cleared their schedules for one morning to have a portrait session. One small part of their day - for a lifetime of memories hanging on their wall.

Plus, I heard that the family I’m featuring below family got lunch out of the deal, too!

When we get together for your family portrait, I want to make sure that a few key things happen. They are pretty simple…

  1. I want to make you and your family look your best. This is why you hire a professional. I will arrange the group to look great and help pose you to flatter you the best.

  2. I want to photograph any and all combinations of family members. I’m here. So are you. So… let’s do this! Want the aunties with all the cousins? Great. Line em up! Want the siblings all together? Super! Quit pulling each others’ hair and smile for the camera (I have actually had to say that to ADULTS!) Do you want individual photos of your kids? Good, I already got them.

  3. I want you to have fun. You’re “supposed” to smile in photos, so why not enjoy the process, too? Why not make that smile as genuine as possible? Surely you didn’t choose me as your Favorite Boring Photographer - let’s have some fun!

Speaking of fun, this family had no shortage of laughs. I wanted to post a Sneak Peek for the Wilde clan and rather than a perfectly finished portrait, I’m sharing this. I think you can see why.
