Although the majority of my photography is wedding related, every now and then I have a chance to shoot a family session and they are always so much fun! Marriage results in the creation of a family, (even if it’s just the husband and wife family) so photographing a family is an opportunity to capture the next phase of a marriage. Of course, I’m a bit of a sucker for some cute babies now that I’m a mom, so I’ll never turn down the opportunity to hang out with one (and maybe sneak a cuddle).
When Megan asked me to take photos of their family, I knew the exact location - Arbor Hill Preserve in Plano. It’s such a gorgeous location with lots of natural beauty and some paved paths for crawling. I’m so glad that we did this session when we did, because Jack is just ready to move! In the next couple months this kid is going to be sprinting everywhere, so it was a great idea to get some photos of him before that next big milestone.
Before our shoot, I sent Megan some style boards for inspiration on their outfit choices and I think it really paid off. They looked so great together and their coordinating choices elevated the quality of the photos. I love to offer custom inspiration boards to my clients for their portrait sessions. Choosing outfits can be so overwhelming and I love to do anything I can to relieve some of that stress from my clients.
Here are some of my favorites from our session. Hope you enjoy!
