If you’ve ever flown with small children then you know how much Noelle and Barry love their northern family. They packed up their two beautiful girls and traveled up from Florida to spend time together. Cheryl and Lance also traveled down from Watertown and contacted me so we could get some professional photos of their family reunion, which is a common reason to have photo sessions (and also a really good one!).
Darcy started out by wanting absolutely nothing to do with the whole idea of sitting and smiling at adults making fools of themselves. She was 18 months and that’s a tricky age because they really just want to move all the time. Don’t tell anyone but we cheated and gave her a lollipop and then edited it out of the photo. #whateverittakes
People frequently ask if this or that combination of people is allowed or how many people can be included in a session, etc. Life is too short for rules. The way I have it set up is that the time belongs to you and you can include whomever you like for whatever reason you’d like. You say jump, I say how high.
I’m not positive but I think Cheryl was behind the color scheme and everyone did an amazing job. Choosing clothing colors can be very simple, even for large families, and makes a big difference in the final outcome. To learn more about how to choose clothing for your photo session click here.
This image makes me feel happy. It’s also my favorite pose for couples – women generally prefer when they take up a little less real estate in a photo and men generally don’t care. This pose also is very affectionate and that’s what we’re going for in a couples photo.
Thank you so much Cheryl and Lance for sharing your beautiful family with me! I hope you enjoyed the rest of your time together.
