How to get a playful home photography session with three kids
Many of my family photography sessions take place outside but I really love a family session at home. Sessions at home are more personal and can be catered to the interest of the family. When mom and I chatted we discussed the interests of the children and any gestures of characteristics that the children have at this stage. We met in January so meeting indoors worked well for the cold day. At the end of the session we all bundled up and ran around outside kicking soccer balls, shooting basketballs and playing on the swings.
The boys are really into soccer and football and dance parties. Like any younger sister, her daughter is in to whatever her older siblings are doing. Facial expressions that range from stink eye to broad smiles and giggling fits are common with the youngest. The kids pile on each other and love snuggling and hugging. Music and dancing are a big part of life at home. With this information, we tried to capture most of what life was like at home. As an added bonus the grandparents were visiting from Europe so we were able to include them in many photographs too.
The key to this type of session is just to have fun and show off their personalities.
