When the opportunity came to photograph this gorgeous Mama with her three children, we made it happen despite the weather. I was so thankful we decided to risk it, and even though it started sprinkling on us just 15 minutes in and we had to cancel the planned picnic, the downpour held off and we had the most wonderful time walking around the trails.
The curls, that pout, the hands being held. All the details were perfect! I had the best time letting them explore and enjoy nature.
One of the ways I get these natural moments is that I make this FUN for my clients - parents and kids alike. I send materials and ideas to help prepare my families to actually begin to enjoy their sessions. No more worry and stress about wardrobe selection, cranky kids, and pressured/awkward photos. Instead, I help facilitate an experience for my families that creates the kind of memories that are cherished and shared! This sweet family was a great example of how a little preparation (even against weather odds!) can make for the most beautiful connection and art.
