This past week I had the pleasure of photographing the Caron Family. They were so much fun to work with, especially since the session revolved around Grandpa his dog, who traveled to America overseas to see his family. Although their might have been a language barrier the family was amazing in interpreting what he desired and we really had a fun time capturing how this family interacts.
My approach in every session of photographing is working with my clients, seeing what they want to do, having them as much apart of the process as I am capturing. I love to pose too, but find that my clients become stiff. So I have found a balanced formula and process in working with families to be silly, to have fun, and not to take the session so seriously. Of course the kiddies got away with bunny ears for a few, and that kept up their attention in order to develop the best gallery.
Note. Younger children I usually start in the woodsy area’s before traveling to the rocks and beach. Why? Because many younger children have an attention span of 15-20 mins, when you put several options of stimulation in the mix, we lose their attention completely. Because let’s face it rocks and water are definitely way cooler than getting your photo taken!! I make it my goal though to shape the session to the best calibration of you and your family!
I welcome all pets, even the wild ones!! It may take away from your session in distraction or add an element of telling your story of your family. As long as you prepare me, I’m ready for any family pet that comes my way.
During the Caron Family Session I suggested we switch up group photos and capture a variety of artsy photos, along with pairing some of the family members together. They loved this idea. I’m so happy we did this because it brought a lifestyle element to their gallery. Enjoy the images and inquire your LRP Family Session today!
