- About This Post
I know family portrait sessions can be stressful – especially when you’ve got three kids under 6 – but I pride myself in being able to get great photos no matter how wild and crazy your kids are. For this Menlo Park family session at a private residence, I simply let the kids run wild for the first half of the shoot – giving them minor direction here and there but having fun with it. They hung from trees, swung on the swings, played on the slide, kicked the soccer ball around, and ran around like…kids! I know this wasn’t what mom and dad expected, but I assured them that all was good. Later, I dragged the outdoor poolside couch onto the lawn and decided to get some family couch cuddle shots – but staying outdoors. The kids loved this of course, and even though they never really calmed down, we still got some great family photos.
Below are some of my favorite photos from the family photography session, laid out album spread-style. Enjoy!
