I love taking family photos but I know first hand how stressful it can be when you're on the other side of the camera. I am the oldest child in a family of 6 (two parents, 4 kids) and every time we got ready for family photos someone wasn't happy. Someone was having a bad hair day or hated their outfit and there was a lot of screaming and pleading and sometimes
crying weeping. So, I am hyper aware of the drama surrounding family photos and I try to avoid it as best as I can. I try to give clients tips on what to wear and let them choose their location.
This is Nicholas, Eric and Tasha (and baby Paige!). They wanted us to photograph recently-turned-3-years-old Nick and also get some family photos before Paige arrived. The location is Bradley Lake Park, the attire was casual, and no one wept.
Nick was great! He loved exploring the park, he wasn't overdressed, and we had a blast staging him and chasing him all over the park. Tonight I'll be taking photos of baby Paige who was born a week ago! I love repeat customers!
