This mini session season was filled with an incredible amount of beautiful moments and sweet sweet families. A majority of my sessions were previous clients which brings me so much joy. As a photographer, it is incredibly touching to be chosen to capture a family as they grow each year.
I knew I wanted to share these images, but how? I’m grouping these favorites together so you can potentially gain inspiration on posing the variety of family combinations you will encounter. Every family and couple is so unique and calls for different ideas/strategies, but I feel like these inspirations are fruitful for budding photographers starting their own mini session season.
This year I asked each client if they wanted more posed or candid shots. Nearly everyone said a mixture of both and “just do your thing” (which is the biggest compliment). My goal was to get the portrait shots that I know mom really wants out of the way while the children are happy and then move on to all of those tender, candid, priceless moments that make a mom’s heart skip a beat.
These sessions were shot over the course of three months at several locations. Simple locations with amazing light is my go to for these. If I have good light, I feel like I can do anything! My attention can be directed to real connections vs. worrying about shadows, and weird skin tone colors.
I hope you enjoy!
