It was a warm but lovely day in New Orleans and I met up with one of my favorite families in the Bywater for their family portraits! I’ve had the pleasure of photographing this family for years now and I always look forward to their sessions, they are always up for trying anything!
This session was extra special, especially for the kiddos being that we ended the session at Cafe’ Beignet on Royal street in the French Quarter and they got to chow down on some delicious beignets, hearts were won & tummies were full! This Cafe Beignet location has to be one of my favorites to take photos in, the heart shaped white chairs, the openess of the cafe’ it almost looks as if it were picked out of a romantic movie.
So, we all know family sessions have a little bit of a stigma, right? When most families think about taking family photos whether it’s with little ones or grown siblings, they are always nervous that it will be a sh*t show lol. I’m here to tell you that it’s possible to have a good, fun & memorable experience while taking your family photos. Here’s how:
The way I approach family photos may be a little different, i’m go with the flow, but i’m also prepared. I also know that kids will be kids and I love letting them do their thing and trying to match their energy. I love seeing families interact with one another, laugh and play. This is a great time to get your kids in candid moments & creating those memories to look back on when they’re older. These are precious times to cherish because they fly by so quickly.
