This is the K Family. I can’t even begin to write how much I love this family (I’m especially fond of Trisha, she’s just “my people”). We set out one evening to have a sunset session with her husband, Mike, and 2 little boys. I have 3 girls, so being around boys is such a new and refreshing feel. They really are different, huh? Preston and Mason were hilarious during our shoot. Young boys are fond of the silly face and we did get some of those shots! Let’s have a look at the K family’s photos.
WHAT CAN YOU LEARN FROM THIS SESSION? Taking family photos with little kids can be frustrating and nerve wracking. Let’s be honest, you want your kids on their best behavior when you’re paying to have photos done. Often, we moms (and I’m so guilty of this), pressure the kids when we feel like the photographer isn’t getting what they want. The good news is that family professional, seasoned family photographers are used to kids and we know that no children pay 100% attention and act like a grown-up 100% of the time…they just don’t. Trisha did a great job of reiterating what I was asking of the boys but never harped on them or got frustrated with them. She just laughed right along with me. These boys are funny and they’re full of little boy quirks. Next time you’re in the situation where you feel pressured to have your kids act a certain way, just take a step back and realize that it’s okay for kids to be kids, professionals understand this. Trisha and Mike’s interaction with the boys during the shoot kept the boys in good moods, happy and not feeling pressured by having to do this! Great job Mike and Trisha!
