We did a sunrise session at the park for these family portraits in Springfield, MO. This family was so sweet and fun to photograph. I mean, look at this baby! What a cutie! She was a week out from turning 1 years old, so we did a combination family photo session, plus 1 year old photo shoot, and snapped some romantic couple shots too!
A couple pro-tips for shooting family photos with young kids:
1. Bring some of their favorite toys/books
2. Bring snacks
3. Have a favorite song or show loaded on your phone to play right by the camera to get them to look at the camera or dance
4. Patience and a sense of play (I'll stay as long as it takes to get the shot, and I'm more than happy to crawl around on the ground or make funny faces or pretend to be an animal with the kids)
If you are ready to schedule your family photo session, don't hesitate to reach out!
