When is the right time to get your family portraits done? When all of your family is in town! Which was the scenario at the beginning of June when Nicole’s sister came for a visit. Nicole new she was coming and asked me if I would take pictures for them. Of course I said yes! So all 15 of us met up at Mount Pisgah Arboretum for a fun session. As you can see ages ranged from 18 months to 92 yrs!
Photographing littles can be hard some times because of their short attention span and active lifestyle. But that is also what makes it fun for me because you never know what they are going to do next.
Also I don’t tend to tell my clients exactly how to pose. Something I am still working on, but I love to see what people come up with when they are just comfortable and being themselves.
Opportunities for family portraits do not happen as often as most of us would like, so when you get the chance I highly recommend you do it!
These three beautiful sisters …
have beautiful families of their own.
Even though they have busy lives and had other plans for when the oldest sister was in town, they still made time to take pictures. Now they will always have these photos to remind them of how they were at this moment.
Sometimes these opportunities are missed because visits are unplanned and it can be hard to book a photographer at the last minute. But don’t let that stop you from trying. On the flip side, don’t wait until the opportunity arises, make the opportunity or take pictures whenever you can!
