I included a family photo from both my family, and my husband’s family. We had a great time shooting both, but they couldn’t be more different. The family portrait above is in my husband’s hometown of Seattle, WA. It was around Christmas and we all dressed up. The second family portrait is on my family’s vacation. We wanted to remember the trip and we kept it casual.
Remember to take advantage of being able to see instantly what the pictures look like. You can ask the photographer to see the first few shots, to make sure it’s what you have in mind and to make sure you didn’t miss anything. It gives you a chance to fix a clothing choice that isn’t quite working, or try to comb down any unruly hairs that look out of place. If only this was the case in 1993 with my unruly bangs! Your paying the photographer to capture your family in the way that you’ve imagined, so feel free to show them pictures of inspiration and direct any shots you really want to get. Most photographers welcome your input, they want you to be happy with the end product. Feel free to link/pin/tweet any of your favorites below.
