Family photography today has changed and evolved from those old studio setups at the local mall or Kmart. They are fresh and limitless, for which I am so grateful! Today I want to write a bit about some fun ways to change up the traditional family session.
I love to get to know families in their natural elements. Another term used for this type of session is documentary style photography. It is capturing your family in a unique-to-you way whether in your home in the kitchen together, on the farm checking crops and animals, or hiking your favorite trail. These are all fun ways to showcase your family’s interests and dynamics.
Last fall I had a fun opportunity to photograph this great family - The Hensons!
They requested we take their photos on the nearby golf course. To be honest, I felt a bit out of my element but thought “Well, lets do this!! It'll be fun to do something different!” I arrived, and we loaded my equipment, assistant, myself and the family of 5 on two golf carts. I was immediately smitten with this family. They were full of laughter and trust in my ideas, so we went to exploring the golf course.
Check out a few of my favorites…
It was such a blast hanging out with this golf club swinging family. The memories that were made will be forever remembered and cherished with these photographs. What is so fun is I have been apart of more family milestones in the last year!! What a blessing!!
So, if you have a fun family activity, think about having it documented for your family to look back on for years to come. It is definitely fun for me, the photographer!
Happy Harvest to You ALL!
