When we get together with our loved ones, we want to capture those special moments as well as those that are left behind.

Kiss Your Child

One of the most important moments in a couple’s life is the occasion of a child being born. It can be a time of celebration, or it can be the most stressful time of a couple’s life, as everything has to be perfect. The newborns’ first moments are one of the most important as it is the first time, they are able to respond to their parents.

Hugs

Whether it’s a baby shower, wedding, or the birth of a new child, the excitement is palpable as friends and family gather to celebrate. But often, the moment doesn’t last long enough for everyone to soak at the moment. With time ticking by, the guest of honor might begin to wonder if everyone is getting along—if their new sister is having a good time or if their new nephew is really enjoying this photoshoot.

Make a Train

If you are searching for a way to kill some time, have a look at this one. If you haven’t noticed, there have been lots of posts on this blog about the best poses for family photos. I don’t want to reveal all the secrets of my poses, so here is one for you. Play with the background, make it look like the sky is moving and changing. The train is one of those subjects that is part of our culture.

No matter how old you are, you’ve seen a train at least once, it is a constant in the way we live, and it also brings us back to our childhood. Life moves fast, and we live in a digital world, but it’s never too late to make a train in the backyard or together with your older children. We recently had the chance to do just that: we made a small train out of spray cans and cardboard and photographed the boys in front of it.

There is no doubt that Family Sessions are a great photographic opportunity! The entire family is allowed to participate freely, with everyone being involved in the process.
