I love it when clients ask me, “What do you think about doing something different for our session this year…?” I usually say yes before they finish asking. I LOVE new and fun ideas for family pics. When clients don’t have ideas, I usually start with these questions:
- What do y’all like to do as a family?
- What are your hobbies?
- How do you most enjoy spending time together?
- What are the kids into right now (that they may not in the future)?
Frollicking around a field is fun, but sometimes it’s most fun to capture the memories of what you guys like to do together. One of these days they’ll be up and out, so if you love Monopoly Mondays like we do, for example, that would be a perfect photo shoot!
So, can you tell what this family is into? We are a baseball family, too, so I love this idea.
I know how fun it is to get everyone dressed up, but how excited would all your peeps be if you told them, “Hey! Let’s wear jeans and jerseys for pics this year!”?
If you’ve followed me for a while, you know how much I love Houston and Texas, in general. Are there any cool locations I’m missing? Does your family have a favorite hangout spot? I’m pretty much always available for travel sessions if you want me to do a shoot in your favorite vacation location. My families who have had me travel to take pics for them have all loved it and especially loved not having to find a new photographer in a new location. You know me, your kids know me, everyone loves me…:) Seriously, think about it.
Sweet baseball family, I hope your Christmas cards were the winners this year!
