Fall picture session is my favorite for families. I love the opportunity to photograph families year after year and see the children grow and change. Last time I photographed this family, mama was pregnant with little Aiden. You can see those pictures by clicking here So much has changed in the last 2 years. Big brother Jaxon was an adorable toddler back then and now is a handsome little dude.
I dare you to answer, how could the photos not turn out gorgeous with a family this stunning?! I enjoy to capture my fall picture sessions outdoors because -heck- why not take advantage of that pretty year round sunshine we get here in California? Not only does it make for a gorgeous session background, the glow of the sunshine reflects the warmth these families have and that is the best part of these family photos.
A huge part of the success of a family session is the coordinating colors and complimenting patters. In this session, the mamas maroon dress coordinates so well with the boys’ deep fall inspired colors and her husband’s flannel shirt. When all of these clothing elements tie in together, it brings the whole session together seamlessly. To make sure this always happens, my studio has plenty of dresses, clothes, accessories, and props not only for mom, but also for the kids and the whole family.
Additionally, our studio has a direct contact with the best Orange County hair and makeup artist. Our stylist will work with moms to make them feel special and photo ready.
During sessions like these, I tend to stay away from posing and the typical stare into the camera smiling pictures. Yes I do make sure to capture one of those frames each session (for grandma right) but it’s the in-between moments that I love the most. Capturing you and your family in your natural element is so much sweeter, and makes for so many more natural smiles and giggles for me to capture on camera. The photos turn out more genuine and natural. You can so clearly see the joy the little ones bring mama and daddy. That is the best part of family sessions after all, right?
I can’t stress enough how precious it is to be able to have these special moments in your life documented- especially when it’s your most loved ones. Contact me via email or phone to book a special family session like this one!
