Roswell Family Photographer – Behind the Scenes

I love holding Roswell family photography sessions by the river, and the light during this session was particularly amazing. These images are from a mini session there last fall.

The mom was really happy with how the images turned out, though she confessed that prior to seeing the gallery, she wasn’t sure the session had gone very well. I thought back–true, it had started with the little boy being bitten by a pretty vicious ant! There had been quite a few tears, but he eventually pulled it together. And there had been a few moments when I thought the rowdy girls might end up in the river (and they did eventually, but with mom and dad’s permission and not because they pushed each other in!).  I share all this with you today to remind you that you don’t have to be a perfect family or have perfect kids to capture the perfect family photo. In fact, it’s better if you don’t! No family is perfect, no children behave perfectly, and no family photography session goes according to plan. But life doesn’t go as planned. And these sessions are about capturing life! Of course, you want beautiful images, but a little chaos is beautiful. I think so anyway.

And I think most of my clients would agree. After all, we’re living the chaos every day!   So it’s true, this session did start off a little rocky. But after a few minutes, the kids fell into a rhythm and the parents seemed to relax too. I love how you can clearly see the sense of adventure in the kids and the spirited relationships between them. This is not a perfect family. But the love between them is perfect. And I’m proud to have captured it.   I was so happy to see that clients were not only using these images to adorn their Christmas Cards, but also, their loving homes. Need inspiration on how to display images from your session. Get ideas flowing here.
