Fun Family Photo Shoot

My first professional family photo shoot was this past weekend. I was really nervous because it was my first shoot, two parents, three kids, and I would be battling the midday sun.

Still I set out with my camera, props, blankets, and reflectors just in case. And of course I brought along my amazing husband who helps me and supports me in everything I do. Yeah, even with the reflector, there were a few minor shadows.

Yeah, the kids didn’t all cooperate and smile at just the right times.

Yeah, when we got out to the sunflower fields most of them had turned black.

Yeah, at times it felt like I had failed as a photographer and didn’t get many good pictures.

BUT when I got home and began digging through the 300+ photos in photoshop 12, I found some amazing and fun photos I could use and give to this awesome family.

The best part was that even though the kids acted up, the weather didn’t cooperate a hundred percent, and many things didn’t go as I had planned, I still had a blast and so did they. Lots of laughs, fun, and a memory that will last a lifetime.
