I think I mentioned before that I wasn’t going to post my photography on my blog, but after Desarae commented about it, and because it IS a part of my life, I decided… why not? Especially after a shoot like this!
Last wednesday I had what I feel like was my first “real” family shoot– a photoshoot with people I don’t know that well (I think I’ve only ever met the daughters once, although we do have a lot of common friends.) It was a lot of fun, and I’m so, so pleased with how all of the pictures turned out! The parents had just had their 25th wedding anniversary, which is so awesome, and I loved seeing the family dynamics between them all! You can really see the love in the family through these pictures! I was so nervous to shoot for them, since I don’t know them well, but these pictures turned out even better than I had hoped! It’s given me some confidence for any future shoots; I had to remind myself that obviously they liked what they saw on my photography page or they wouldn’t have contacted me! It’s a good thing to tell yourself when you’re doing photoshoots for people you’ve never met- they aren’t even judging you on their liking of you as a person, they’re only judging what they’ve seen you do, which is awesome!
It didn’t hurt that the location, the park where I have always wanted to get married (so much for that, haha!) is a gorgeous place! It has so many interesting spots for photos, you’re never lacking for a good backdrop. While we were there, we saw a couple getting engagement photos done.
Haha, and their brother had to get a “hipster” photo with his beanie. It was pretty hilarious! They were definitely all super friendly and fun, and it really helped me to feel more comfortable and not like I was going to ruin the shoot.
The above are definitely my favorite shots of the day. Their little guy was such a good sport up until the very last shot, and then he decided he’d had enough!
