Springtime family portraits

Other than beautiful lighting, the best thing I can find in a client's home when I arrive for a photo shoot are walls and shelves covered in photos displayed as part of the home decor. This tells me 1. how important photography is to you and 2. how you plan to utilize the photos from our session. I was thrilled when I arrived and asked Lindsay what kind of session she was looking for and she told me she wanted to show me something. She led me upstairs and showed me two large wall collages created from previous photo shoots and said "this." Each was a beautiful collection of candids and traditional posed shots that showcased the love and energy of her family of five. Perfect.

Thank you so much Lindsay for the fun shoot and I can't wait to come back to your house to see how these get displayed!

I told each of the kiddos to make a silly face to loosen them up and I like those shots just as much as the smiles!

Avery just wasn't having any of it. Until her daddy made her smile.

In addition to the portraits, Lindsay also asked for candid of the kids playing with their toys. Such a great idea.

These are so it a professional requirement of yours that your subjects all have lovely eyes? Or somehow you manage to highlight them in every shot. Amazing.

About Kelly Tarleton

I've always been a creative person, and the one who always had a camera on-hand at a moment's notice for any occasion. Photography and graphic design dominated my life in school and I loved every minute of it. I miss that constant creative outlet and want to share more of it with my family and friends through this blog.See more of my work at my website:
