Welcome back, guys and gals!
I recently had a spectacular holiday portrait session with the Watts/Jefferson family. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – I truly have the best clients ever! This family was no exception. Ranging in age from 6 months to 16 years old, everyone helped keep each other upbeat, on point, and most importantly, smiling throughout the day.
Devin Watts is actually a friend of mine who I met in…high school! That’s right. Who knew that a hundred years later, I’d be photographing her and her children?!
For our shoot, Devin dressed everyone in the family as if they were headed to a holiday party. I was able to work with their cute outfits, which made for some amazing photos. I loved taking their portraits at her sister’s home because it kept everyone warm, comfortable, and relaxed in familiar surroundings. It was truly a family affair.
Here, mom Devin and I are doing our best to make the baby laugh and smile. It truly was an amazing photo shoot. If any of you are considering a family session or are prepping for an upcoming session, heed the words of mom, Devin:
“Try to schedule your shoot midday after lunch and a nap for children 5 and under…and if possible, have them get dressed just moments before shooting,” she says. Solid advice!
Okay, on to pictures of the Watts/Jefferson family!
I’ve scheduled holiday shoots all the way through January (believe it or not!), so if I don’t get the chance to tell you, I’ll tell you now: Happy Holidays!
