Three Things to Know About Your Family Session | Richardson, TX Family Photography

Why do you book a family session? Is it for Christmas cards? Do you just want to update your family photos? Or is it to capture your family and kids in the stage you are currently in?

There are so many reasons why people get updated photos each year, many just want a picture for their Christmas cards while others really want to capture this season of life. For me, it is important to capture the season of life rather it be in the Spring or Fall. I want to remember the crazy that is our family.

Family sessions can be fun!

Yes, as a lifestyle photographer, I want to make your session fun! A portrait session consists of your traditional family photograph; as well as, the candid images of you playing with your little ones. We run, walk together, bring out toys and bring out all the things to get the genuine smiles from your family.

When is the best time to do a family session?

For me I love the Spring! The flowers are blooming, the colors are simple, clean and neutral. The weather is still gorgeous and summer heat hasn’t hit yet. You aren’t sweating while trying to chase your little ones. Plus, the craziness of Fall hasn’t set in. Bonus, you have plenty of time to find the perfect Christmas cards!


What if my kids are having a hard day?

That’s why we play! A full hour session also allows your kids to warm up to me, and get a little more comfortable with their surroundings. Truth, we did pictures for our son’s 2 year birthday. Very few smiles came out that day. We played, tickled and got just enough for this Mama! Come to find out, he had 100+ fever and an ear infection coming on. But these pictures are still some of my favorites! We can make it work!
