Sunset Session Share!

Inspiration: This is such a beautiful family, and when I was thinking about their session, I talked with the Mom.  We planned on our locations and how the session would go. I loved the old bus, and my favorite locations were the open field with perfectly lined trees, and the perfect sun-setting light.  She and I had our ideas of how we wanted the images to end up, and I am so happy with what we got.  It is exactly as I had pictured it.

Favorite Element: I loved during the session when we were in the field, the sun was just setting, and I captured the Mom with her daughter. It was not a planned moment at all. Dad was getting big brother dressed, Mom was keeping daughter happy and it was perfect capturing their relationship.  I love when I can capture a family with emotions, you can just see the love they share.

Biggest Challenge: I feel like the biggest challenge to this and every family session I do is getting the children to smile all at the same time. Plus add in wanting them to be as natural as possible.  My assistant Beki does a wonderful job at doing everything possible to make them happy and smiling.  We even have a handful of suckers in my camera bag that everyone gets once the session is over, sometimes one child might end up with 2 or 3!!  Whatever it takes to get the cute face!

What the Client Said: One thing the client kept telling me is how stressed out she had been thinking of this session, then getting everyone dressed, worried everyone will be happy.  I always try to make my sessions the most relaxed and comfortable that they can be, and fun for the children.  In the end she said it was such a fun session, and fell in love with her final images.

  • Staying Grounded, Encouraged & True to Yourself
    When I started my photography career, I was like most newbies in the industry. I was constantly looking at other artist’s’ work and comparing my photos to theirs. I would try to replicate someone else’s picture and criticize myself for my post-processing flaws. It is easy to feel overwhelmed, intimidated and inadequate when you’re new. […]
