What an amazing family of 6 lifestyle experience photography session in Central Mississippi!
What’s even better than having a fun family photo experience? Making it an adventure! A good way to engage a kids (especially preschool and elementary ages kids) in a memorable photography experience is to take them on a little adventure, even if it's close to home. I have been photographing families all over central Mississippi for many years and I'm always looking for new fun places to show my families to make sure that their session, especially with kids has interesting elements to keep us on the move! These are usually a favorite experience because it's not only creating an authentic memory for your family, we're also getting a beautiful environment as a backdrop! Wouldn't your kids be excited about a photo session at a really cool location that they’ve never been to before with lots of fun natural areas to discover, sticks to collect, and rocks to climb on? I'm going to go ahead and say - mine definitely would!
The McElroy family was all about this adventure! Water, rocks, sticks and wildflowers! They are already an active outdoor loving family and made it so easy to capture genuine experiences together. It was a little muddy on this mostly overcast day but that obviously didn't stop us or slow these kiddos down one bit! We roamed trails, ponds, threw rocks and of course took a break for some family snuggle time!
Before a family session like this, I always have the client (typically Mom) fill out a short questionnaire that helps me get to know your family. This also includes those must have photos for mom. For this family we really wanted to capture some shots of mom and her last baby while he's still most happy in her arms, dad and daughter, and the boys doing their thing. This works great with large families because it gives different kids a break for a little energy burning freedom!
I also try to take the opportunity to capture each child individually and of course we can't forget mom and dad moments! I have been known to work a camera with a baby on my hip and I love it! I hear all the time that mom and dad haven't had photos of just them together since their wedding and I think it's something that they'll treasure having in the future. I could not pick a favorite of these two!
