This is a shoot I was WAY too excited about because this family reminded me a lot of my own. My goal (which is true for every shoot, but I think I was more mindful of it this time) was to capture their dynamic well enough that even a stranger could get to know them just by looking at their pictures. What do you think? Want to be their best friend? :) Thanks for being so fun to shoot, guys!
Take away tip: There is no need for kids to stand still and smile...especially kids younger than 4! I try to ask parents not to correct their kids unless there is a rule being broken. Kristin and Adam were so chill and let Mr. Emerson do his own thing! Parents always end up treasuring the pictures where their kids are being themselves...even if at the time they seem "uncooperative."
