California Family Beach Session

The end of Summer is also a bit of a downer for me (which means Winter is around the corner and the kids will be in the house all day, yuck) but at least I can imagine I’m in So Cal with beautiful images like these from Melinda Jankowski Photography!  Love the color theme for this shoot too!

Love this artistic approach that Charlie & Violet Photography takes with maternity photography!  Not your typical maternity shoot!  I feel like this is going to change things in the maternity world, you watch!

This was such a beautiful session. Hollis and her husband brought along Ryder and he wanted nothing to do with it. Mom and Dad tried everything to get him involved, but nothing was working. The minute I suggested he jump on Dad’s back – it was all over. He was engaged and the family pictures really soared to new heights. I have gotten so many compliments on this session and its artistic approach. I am really proud of the work.

Gear Used:
D800 Nikon body, 50mm Nikon lens, Alien Bees 400, Large shoot-through umbrella.

FACES

Stuck in a rut when it comes to photographing your own kids (or nephews and nieces in this case)?  Then get all up in their face and tell them to do their worst!  I guarantee the result will be interesting at the very least :)

If you like what you end up with then take it a step further with this idea from Jane Ammon photography that we posted a while back.

 

Why?You can't see me.I'm tough.

Child Photography Tips from Charity White Photography

From: Charity White Photography

I didn’t think it was possible for such a young child to have so much personality. But as Stella has proven to me for the past three years that I have photographed, her, it is BEYOND possible. In fact, she just might be the feistiest, most energetic, personality-filled 4-year old I have ever met. And each year she has more than the last.
